The only suggestion I can make is that the river stones, wood and such have a
sand layer beneath them. A sand bottom is very healthy for all fish
especially natives. How big are the fish you intend to keep? North America holds fish
of nearly any size and sunfish are a beautiful replacement for cichlids. But
there are other thoughts on this matter. Your tank and filtration will serve you
well with many native fish.
