Advice:two things: 1st, don't clean your filters to much. Let them do their job, but do weekly water changes. I clean filters about once a month with tank water. 2nd, Over filter your tank if possible.

About Yourself:We started with a 55g with goldfish when I was 20. A few years ago we got a Betta, and we were gone from their. We then started with Cichlids over 2 months ago. We purchased a 125 last week, and are slowly setting it up. I have 2 Betta's each in their own 5g tank, a 20 Gallon with Gil the guppy, and the 46 with 8 cichlids.
I work for State Farm in insurance sales, and I cannot wait until 5pm to go home and see MY BOYS ; D
Fish Kept:8 African Cichlids - 2 Male Betta's - 1 Fancy Guppy.
About Yourself:When I was just a kid my mom and dad opened an aquarium shop and I learned so much about fresh and salt water care and have always enjoyed aquariums. I am in the ac/heating field and in the summer when I am so busy it is hard to devote as much time as I would like to working with my tank but it seems like I always find time someway or another.
Fish Kept:This is a community tank which has Silver Dollars. Platys, 23 Neons, 2 Plecos, 2 Cory Cats, 2 Dalmation Mollys and 2 Black Mollys and several Platy and Molly fry.
Corals/Plants:Life like artificial plants with driftwood, Texas holy rock, river rocks and petrified wood rock to make a very natural environment.
