Description: 90 gallon south american and central american cichlids. 48"x18"x24". Running the tank on a AquaClear 110, Tetra Whisper 100 using two air lines, 2 200w Visi-Therm Deluxe heaters, and I just got in: Eheim Pro 3 electronic 2076 canister filter-really impressive and well worth the money! Coralife T-5 lighting and a lunar light.
Advice: OVER FILTRATION IS KEY! 10x the tank volume. Cycle Cyle Cycle. Always test water parameters to insure overall tank health. Observe your fish at least 30 min to an hour a day :). I preferably feed them one pinch at a time 2x daily for 3-4 min making sure everything is consumed. Always choose water changes over medication unless all else fails.
Fish Kept: Flowerhorn, 2x Green Terror, 2x Convict, Jack Dempsey, Firemouth, Red Terror, Black Ghost Knife, 2x Synodontis(forgot their names), Bristlenose Pleco and Clown Pleco.
Corals/Plants: Amazon swords, kyoto grass, forgot the other one. Using sand substrate (black tahitian moon), right now supplementing plants with iron. No co2, natural light, making sure plenty of oxygen. The swords are sprouting new swords.
About Yourself: I've been living in California most of my life until December 2007 I moved out to Arizona with my fiance. Currently working with ACE HARDWARE Retail Support Center. If you've ever been to any ace hardware stores and bought something, i'm the guy who packaged it haha. I've been keeping goldfish since I was 14 and they got boring and then I looked into cichlids which were amazing! The color and the agressiveness and there puppy like attitudes. First just came the fish and then I started getting into it and want to decorate the crap out of the tank. I shoulda got a bigger tank than 90 gallon. It seems real small to me now.
