Right now i have a 20 gallon tank, looking for a bigger one.
i found 100 on criegslist for 100$ if you watch every day you will find a good deal
would the electric yellows work though in the tank and would they be able to eat feeders?
you would be surprised what they can eat my small ones eat a gold fish half it size. rosy minnows also. I have 3 Africans red blue and yellow 1 fire mouth and 15 jack Dempsey Babbie's in a 30
There are soo many. It will depend on your parameters and which breed you are focusing on.

Right now im looking at blue or yellow electrics and i was also wondering if theres much a difference between the two. and from what hackem says it sounds like i could put both in the same tank
I had both in the same tank and never had an issue. So if that is what you are looking for I dont see an issue. They were very similar in behavior. Didn't care much for live feeding, they stuck to the flakes and sticks.
I have read that blues get a lot bigger than yellows is this true?
I have only had them since june and there still the same size as each other
Well, the EB could get to 8" but mine never went past 4 or 5" in a 90 gallon. Tropical Fish for Freshwater Aquariums: Electric Blue African Cichlid
I also had a cobolt, they are a bit smaller topping out at 6" and they are very similar looking once they are an adult.
