I've got a bunch. Still haven't found a cichlid I didn't like (well... for the most part). About half of my tanks are Lake Malawi, a couple of Tang tanks, a couple of west African tanks, a big SA eartheater setup, some discus, fancy plecos and soon to be setting up a central American setup.
I guess the first question is what size tank do you want to set up? Are you leaning towards bigger, more aggressive fish or smaller fish? Do you want plants? Cichlids only or mixed community?
