More Info

Country: Australia
Description: 3ft African Cichlid tank. New tank - only 2 months old. 1500L/h cannister filter, Coral sand, Mixture of rocks - mostly sandstone to raise the ph level. Looking to buy a better light so that I can have a blue and white tube.
Advice: Get a ph buffer for your tank, as the correct ph level will bring out the colours in the fish. Although its expensive to buy a lot of chemicals for the tank, its worth it as you will rarely lose a fish if you get the water right.
Fish Kept: Mostly lake malawi cichlids (electric yellows, electric blue, red zebra, maingano, afra cobue, blue dolphin, cobalt blue, red forrest jewel, red peacock, interruptus,venustus & lombardoi) and have 3 american cichlids (convicts) and 3 lake tanganyika (frontosa, julidochromis gombi & princess cichlid)
Corals/Plants: In my experience, cichlids destroy real plants, so i only have a few fake plants at this stage.
Tank Size: 45 gallons
