More Info

Country: Bermuda
Description: Tank is currently fresh water, recently converted from Salt. Dimensions are 8 feet long, 2 feet wide, 2.5 feet high. Acrylic tank with blue and while flourescent light sets as well as 3 150 watt metal halide lights, chiller, two large cannister filters, and mainly ocean rocks for decoration.
Advice: First decision is either keeping a very busy tank with many smaller fish and lots of decorations, or going with fewer, larger fish and a simpler tank setup. I prefer larger fish as they seem to have more personality to me and have more of an impact than small fish.
Fish Kept: Currently have 1 irridescent shark (10 inches), two Jack Dempseys, 8 assorted african cichlids, 2 firemouth cichlids, 3 bala sharks (3 inches) and two straightbodied silver fish with pink tails and yellow pectoral fins. They stay at the surface (6 inches)
Corals/Plants: Use ocean rocks and some various sticks taken from the Atlantic. No live rock now that I've converted from Salt water.
Tank Size: 300 gallons
Quote: none
