Description: I have a 55gallon with aqueon lights and an aquaclear70 and an aqueon55 filter. All the rocks were found by my grandparents and the wood is from Jackson lake in Wyoming. I'm considering installing a UV sterilizer if anyone has any knowledge on those I'd love to hear about it.
Advice: Start small then grow your tank along with your knowledge
Fish Kept: I have all different types of cichlids even though it's not suggested, but have yet to have a problem with it. I also have different bottom feeders and plecos throughout.
Corals/Plants: Like stated before all rocks are from my grandparents I believe found throughout Utah. the wood is from Wyoming and all plants are plastic so the cichlids and plecos can't destroy them.
About Yourself: When I was little my dad had a big 225 gallon tank with an Oak stand that he built for it, and he had all sorts of awesome fish that sparked my interest so since the age of five I've had a tank and I'm 22 now so for how young I am I have some experience.
