lol. Yea really, whats that suppose to mean?
I could see maybe being a freshwater tank owner and thinking these are cool for the next step, but after owning a salt tank I couldn't imagine looking at a chichlid tank and saying "awww man how awesome", as much as I would think "eh, where's the color?"

Different people appreciate different things. I personally love the blue striped cichlids already mentioned. Given the choice between a 240 cichlid tank or a 240 reef, well i would choose reef. If i had the money, but A cichlid tank would be a cool FW low money project/tank.
Cant wait to see what you get!
Before I got into salt I had a couple of cichlid tanks, including a cool 55g. I had a pair of Jewels, an awesome firemouth, a tilapia, a breeding pair of convicts, and a few others. As soon as I setup the reef tank I completely lost interest. The tank would just sit in the dark for weeks at a time. I felt bad for the fish and the tank sort of turned into a white elephant. So I decided to tear the whole thing down.
I don't mean to discourage you, I say go for it and have a blast. It's always fun to start a new tank.
don't worry not much can discourage me until I find some other cool thing!;D
does anyone know anything about hartwegi cichlids? a person on CL is selling a 4-5 inch one for $25.
maybe they are from canada eh!!! why say anything if you can't say something good eh!. to each their own and cichlids are very cool and lots of color and a hell of a lot less money than saltwater tanks. Yes some of the fish are expensive but overall not a quarter of the hastle of saltwater tanks.
males can get up to 1 ft in length, so they need a big tank.
how big is big?
