Description: Semi-planted cichlid tank. Old Oceanic flat-back hex tank with simple dual fluorescent hood light. Rock is a variety of rock gathered from outside that was cleaned and boiled to prevent parasites. Filtration is an emporer filter rated to 70 gallons on one side and an extra filter rated for a 20 gallon aquarium that I threw in to help circulate water.
Advice: cycle your tank and ask for advice from a knowledgeable local fish store, petsmart or petco employees will always offer advice...and although well intentioned is not always accurate.
