More Info

Advice: Try not to buy entire put together kits when buying an aquarium as the componets are generally poor quality. Buy your tank separtely and upgrade in better equipment. When going with african cichlids purchase your peacock cichlids, cats & algae eaters first and later after a couple months add your more aggresive mbuna. The mbuna may not attack the established fish in your tank but they will be very aggressive or kill new fish. Learned the hard way.
Fish Kept: 25 male only african cichlids (mbunas & peacocks), 1 convict (south american), 2 catfish, 2 clown loach.
Corals/Plants: All Live; Anubius, sword, java fern and one other?
Tank Size: 90 gallons
Quote: Keeping it all natural.
About Yourself: I work shift work at a refinery. The fish are relaxing to watch and enjoy after the work day is done.

Nice fish avatar
I agree with adding the Mbunas after the peacocks. It worked well for me also. How do people get away with plants in their African Cichlids tanks? It looks great but I've heard the fish will destroy them. fish avatar
