Photo Caption: Additional picture of my 55 Gallon Lake Malawi tank. I built the rock structure out of PVC pipe, rock, aquarium silicone, hot glue, gravel and plants. There is rock and gravel surrounding the structure, fading into white sand on the other side of the tank. The population consists of 1 Large male ice blue zebra, 3 females, 5 female bumblebee cichlid (we have a large male on his way in two weeks). There are also 2 upsidedown catfish, 3 various colored cory cats, 2 plecostemous, a chocolate, and a sailfinned marbled (one will go into the next tank, I got a great bargain on the chocolate recently), and two red clawed crabs.

More Info

State: Utah
Country: United States
Description: 55 gal tank with a penguin 30 filter and a new aquatech filter. Not sure of the model number, but it's the one for 100 gal tanks. Standard heater. The tank is 4 ft, by 1 ft by 21 inches.
Advice: Research, plan, execute. I spent two months researching the fish I wanted to keep. Once I knew what I wanted to populate the tank with, what their requirements were and who they'd get along with I began planning the inside of the tank. I have slowly stocked my tank adding at most 4 fish at a time.
Fish Kept: 55 Gallon Lake Malawi tank. I built the rock structure out of PVC pipe, rock, aquarium silicone, hot glue, gravel and plants.

I also have a 2.5 gallon tank at work. It runs a little whisper filter and has one male beta and three red glowfish.
Corals/Plants: None, plastic or silk are great.
Tank Size: 55 gallons
