More Info

Country: Canada
Description: My tank is 5' x 18" x 26'. I'm running an Eheim 2260 canister filter with a Just added a Hydor Koralia 4 (1200GPH), one of the best investments I've put into my tank. I use an Emeim in line surface skimmer with a secondary intake for pulling the water out at one end and exhaust at the other end of the tank (making sure all the water gets cycled). I'm lighting it with 2 - 4' Power Glow fluorescent bulbs (I had 4 in my 55 gal, but without plants 2 do just fine). I have two heaters (one at either end for more even heat and as a back-up, just in case). I have 250 lbs + of Texas Lace Rock sitting on a crushed coral base. The tank rests on a custom made 1/4' angle iron stand, I used old barn board for doors.
Advice: Clean water... Happy fish!
Fish Kept: Mixed African Cichlids.
Corals/Plants: None
Tank Size: 120 gallons
About Yourself: Just started with Chiclids about a month ago. I'll be updating these images in another month or so after I get the fish population up.
