Description: This is 90 gallons cichlid tank and had been setup from last two months. I am using Zoo med 50/50 bulbs which brings out the cichlids color really best. I put about 30 fish in the tanks so i am using two canister filters to have sufficent filteration for the load. I have Cascade and Fluval 305 currently runnig and i happen to like Fluval better. They are easy to clean and dont make mess when disconnecting hoses.
Advice: Never over Crowd the tank if neccessay if you do always make sure that you have sufficent Filteration.
Fish Kept: 15 Peacocks several in blue and few yellow and red rubys. 4 Yellow Labs 3 Kenyi Cichlids 2 Parrot Cichlids 2 Marble Loaches 1 Black Catfish 2 White Albino Mbuna 2 Blue Electric Mbuna
Corals/Plants: Tufa Rock and Texas holy rock
Tank Size: 90 gallons

thats a fresh tank! really nice, but its listed under reef tanks and its still rated better than about 10 percent of the salt water reef tanks yours is competing with...what does that say about the reef tanks rated lower than yours :) .put yours in the right category (fresh water) and it will go right to the top! fish avatar
