I am re-doing the fish in this tank to make a loose Lake Tanganyika representation. I already have the group of Synodontis lucipinninis, and now I plant to add one or two different cichlids.

Cyprichromis spp. seem like good possibilities. These cichlids have wonderful bright colors and swim around in the mid-water area like rainbowfish. I think they would create a nice effect in this tank. This is a Wikimedia Commons image ( of C. leptosoma...

There are several different named locality varieties for this species.

I hope that I can track down some Cyprichromis and maybe one other species.
