Advice: Do research before getting fish and dont forget your weekly water changes. Water changes are a fishes best friend. Fish care is not like tetris, dont try to fit as many fish in a tank as possible. Get a test kit.

Quote: Moo goes the duck, dont ask me ask the duck its the one that is confused. The cow however is a mute.

COMMENTS

Not overstocked, maybe just under filtered. I would strongly suggest getting a canister filter for a tank of 70 gallons. This would stir up the heavy waste produced by the cichlids and you wouldn't have to work so hard. fish avatar
