More Info

State: California
Country: United States
Description: Fairly new tank, a month old to be exact. Just had water tested a couple of days ago and ammonia and nitrites are at 0. Tank dimensions are 24x24x12. Eclipse tank that came with Eclipse Filter. Lighting provided by Eclipse but changed bulbs to 2x Power Glos.
Advice: The only advice I can really offer is to be patient. A rushed tank will lead to frustrations. I found this out the hard way.
Fish Kept: I'm barely starting out so as of now, I have 4 fish only. I plan on getting a few more malawi cichlids, and 2x gold nugget plecos. I just want to keep this tank simple. As much as I would like to overcrowd to reduce aggression, I'm afraid this plan will have to wait. First it's a fairly small tank, secondly I'm not very confident with the filtration just yet. I plan on upgrading to a Rena XP2, but I'm afraid that I might have too much water flow if I do upgrade. Just have to do a bit more research on that.
Corals/Plants: None except for 1 plastic plant right in the middle.
Tank Size: 30 gallons
Quote: The first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: Decide what you want.
