Description: 120 gallon cichlid tank, i have rena xp4 filstar rated for up to 260 U.S gallons, 2 maxi jet 1200 power heads, 300 watt heater, 120 pounds of cichlid substrate, digital thermometer, red and blue l.e.d lights for the night when turned on at night they high light different parts of the tank (really cool) and about 150 pounds of holly rock.
Advice: if want to be successful with cichlids get the holly rock they love it and they tend to show their natural behavior also keep up with the water changes every 2 weeks sounds like a chore at but it pays off. and when you go get your cichlid qt a fish shop make sure you dont get any from the tank that says assortment cichlids because chances are they are hybrid and thus they are not the real mccoy. Oh and before i end dont forget to research what type of cichlids you have they can get a little pricey and you dont want to put them with other cichlid that going to kill them. thats just the beginning
Fish Kept: restarting
Corals/Plants: if any one knows anything about cichlids you cant have real plants in there with them.
