Do you think I would have room for keyhole cichlids (cleithracara maronii)

It's really a bad idea to mix West African and South American dwarf cichlids. They have nearly opposite aggression/submission signals. When one signals submission, the other thinks it is signalling aggression and all heck breaks out. Usually the Westies win.

Strange comment IMHO. The Keyhole Cichlid (Cleithracara maronii) is one of the shyest, most peaceful cichlids that exists. When breeding/protecting fry, they don't handle disturbances very well. This is the primary reason most breeding attempts fail.

That stocking is all over the place anyways. Wouldn't add anything, I would remove most and pick a responsible range (temp,parameters) and stock from there.
