Natural habitats tend to be much less diverse, persquare foot, than fish tanks. In nature, only a single type of rockwill be seen, surrounded perhaps by a bit of mud or sand. It is veryimprobable that slate, limestone, lava rock, and granite will all befound in the same place. As far as plants go, it is entirely normal fora single species to dominate the entire area. In other words, the mostrealistic aquarium will use only one type of rock and one type ofplant. This works in the aquarists favour: buying plants and rocks inbulk is usually cheaper.

As I said before, if you wish your rocks to cover with algae, which are what cichlids partially feed on in their natural habitat, you need good strong lighting and a couple of days, but preferably one or two weeks of cycling. Please do not introduce fish before your system is working properly and your water parameters are correct. You do not want to experiment with your water chemistry with livestock in the tank. Check your water flow and add another power head if necessary. Many cichlids come from the upper ranges of the lakes and are used to and enjoy a bit of wind-generated turbulence. If algae threaten to take over too drastically, dampen your lights and check your water. Rather than using too many chemicals, remedy the algae growth spurt by temporarily adding a bunch of floating plants (hornwort is both cheap and easily removed) to help absorb the nasties in the water and shade the tank without eliminating light entirely. This remedy works astonishingly well, and has no strange water parameter altering knock-on effects.
