Description:this tank is 2 years old, it went under many changes until i have decided to turn it into a cichlid tank. I used limestone rocks from a beach in Ayia Napa for those of you who know cyprus. The plants are plastic as I do not have the time to keep live plants. The gravel is also from a beach and the background is from exo terra and it's really beautiful for this aquarium. I hope my cichlids are happy!

About Yourself:Brand new in the hobby, but have several friends who know the hobby, and have helped me out. Thanks for looking!
Fish Kept:3 Bolivian Rams,
3 Apistogramma Cacatuoides,
5 Asstd Platys,
4 Peppered Corys,
1 Cardinal Tetra,
2 Bamboo shrimp,
15 Ghost shrimp,
Believe it or not, everyone gets along 110%. I thought I would lose a few ghost shrimp, but they have not been touched.,
I'm at maximum capacity, so I do 25% water changes/vacuuming every 1.5 weeks.,
Feed: Flake and NLS Cichlid Formula, and freeze-dried brine shrimp every few days.
Corals/Plants:All plastic and silk. A combination of Sea Garden, Tetra Water Wonders, and Penn Plax plants.<br>
I use Malaysian driftwood, which really accentuates the tank.
My tank is relatively young, and I learned from my mistakes. Until my tank was properly cycled, I did unfortunately lose a couple platys and tetras. Now, I am correctly cycled, and everyone inside is happy.

Advice:Have good filtration and 10 hours of good powerful lighting. dont forget to add plenty of live plants to help the natural cycle and add some oxygen. I like buying the plant bulb packs for around 5 bucks you get 4-8 bulbs. they usually work pretty good.
