So I have a 55 gallon with 2 oscars and I'm getting rid of 1 and I have a yellow cichlid (little man). I want to get a couple more cichlids and try to breed them. Any advise?

are you keeping one oscar with the africans? It is not advised to keep africans with oscars as africans are aggressive and are meant to be over stocked where as oscars are messy and grow big. You tank being only 55gal is only really suitable for one oscar.

If you want other cichlids you really need seperate tank.

I'm living my life, but not necessarily in the right order :)

Mbuna and peacocks both love to attack the eyes and gills so I would be very cautious. You really do not have enough tank anyway.
