38 gallon African Biotope


Hello I was wondering what to do with with my 38 gallon and wanted to hear your suggestions. I did have a few ideas such as making it a lake Tangikanya shell dweller tank or a Lake Malawi tank that has a colony of Demasoni cichlids. The setups would be:

Malawi:

Demasoni Cichlids
Johanni Cichlids
Bristlenose Pleco
Zebra Cichlids
or
Electric yellow cichlids

Tangikanya:

Colony of
Multis or Ocellated shell dwellers
Synodontis Petricola
Maybe a school of African Moon Tetras (I know they are not from the lake but they are located in the Congo)
And possibly another kind of cichlid

Also I don't want to do a planted tank as I am doing that with a 55 gallon and I have always wanted a nice biotope aquarium
Hope you can help me.
