About Yourself: HVAC tech by day, aquarist by night. I started a few years ago with a 10gal tank, and grew from there. I have many tanks ranging from 10gal-210g. All of my fish are Malawi cichlids. These fish are gorgeous. Colors of these fish are amazing. People think they are saltwater.


amazing tank, usually like cichlids with mostly rock. reallt like how all that bog wood looks. Do you have any troubles with Ph dropping because of it? fish avatar
uv for the parasites and you need a lot of filtration for the tank size plus multiple africans can eat a lot + that means they put out more waste. You did very well Nathan San! fish avatar
work of art!well done :) i love it fish avatar
Best cichlid tank seen yet. should be Number 1. only question is didn't you go alittle over board on the filters and powerheads. and the uv sterilizer in freshwater system never seen that before? with all those watts why didn't you add a layer of fertilizer substrate and run with live plants? but i still love the tank great job i guess what your doing works. fish avatar
looks amazing! fish avatar
Has to be one of the best tanks on this site. Very Nice!!! fish avatar
