Description: I have a Mixed African Cichlid Aquarium. It is a 37-Gallon Tall Marine Land model with LED lights. Tank is 30" Wide, 24" Tall, and 12" Deep from front to back. I use a Marine Land Penguin 200 Bio-wheel filter, and a 150 watt Marine Land heater. (also a Petco brand air pump for the single air strip in the tank)
Advice: Be patient! Fish aquariums cannot be rushed if you want them to turn out beautiful. Contact a local fish store for all of the advice you can ask for! (Not Petco or Petsmart or anything like that, STRICTLY FISH stores will have much more knowledge at their disposal.)
Fish Kept: 12 Assorted African Mbuna and Peacock Cichlids including: Mbunas- Blue Johanni, Yellow Aurotis, Electric Yellow, Red Stripe Devil (He's orange..), and a Cobalt Blue. Peacocks- Two Hybrid "Obi" Peacocks in Calico Orange/Black/Purple/White coloring, Crown Royal (Don't know the exact name but his coloring is exactly like a Crown Royal whiskey bag), another Hybrid "Obi" in Deep Red and Blue coloring, one White/Pink tinged Peacock(Also don't know the actual name, will find out.), One White Flametail Mbuna, (Bright White with orange/yellow fins), and one Bumblebee Mbuna. Also, one 6" Pleco to clean their poop :D
Corals/Plants: I don't use corals or plants. Instead, I use assorted lace rocks I bought from my local fish store. These rocks are very 'hole'-ey and provide great shapes to create rock formations for the Cichlids. This is highly recommended for African Cichlids as they prefer rocky, natural environments. Also, my aquascaping material is natural white sand, also good for a Cichlid Environment.
Tank Size: 37 gallons
