Great looking tank!!! fish avatar
gorgeous livingstoni! is it bad to have that much filtration for the fish? i was told that it takes out vital minerals from the water if u use too much filtration but id love to filter out as much as i can myself! great job looks great fish avatar
I'm sure you are aware, but the Jack Dempsey is a North American cichlid. I would be careful mixing new world and old world cichlids together just because the water qualities are so different. but hey, if it works it works. Other than that it's a great looking tank! fish avatar
