More Info

State: Texas
Country: United States
Description: 70 gallon freshwater. 1 Emperor 400, 1 Penguin powerhead. Sometimes I think I need more filtration. The powerhead is just to help with circulation and aeration.
Advice: Bigger tanks are easier.
Fish Kept: 18 fish total, 9 cichlids, 2 corys, 1 pleco, 4 algae eaters, 2 rosy barbs. Also 3 prawn that managed to hide and grow big enough to fend off the fish. Cichlids are a mix, but they all have their own spot and get along. The largest, which is hiding in the back left corner, is a Jack Dempsey measuring about 8" long. The rosy barbs were doomed/moved to this tank while cleaning the small tank. They're not much bigger than some of the feeder fish we buy. I probably breaking all the rules, but here are my cichlids (best guesses on some): 2 - Jack Dempseys (Jack & JJ) 1 - Yellow Lab (Stripe) 1 - Super VC10 (Spot) 1 - Hap Ahli (Ice) 1 - Tropheus duboisi (Ringo) 1 - Julidochromis marlieri Burundi (Grid) 1 - Blood Parrot (Bubbles) 1 - Hemichromis stellifer (Jewel) (you guys name your fish, right?)
Corals/Plants: none
Tank Size: 70 gallons
