Hi PuiEdylie,

I think you have a pretty good list there. The only think I might suggest is to switch out a few of the Aulonocara, and swap them out with some Aulonocara jacobfreibergi. Peacocks can be quite timid sometimes in these situations, and don't show their potential color, but the Jakes are a little more aggressive and can hold their own. There is a variety of colors, but its pretty hard to beat the original from Otter Point.

Sounds like a nice tank in the making!
