Description: 55 gallon (48Lx12Wx21H), 2 aquaClear 200 power filters (I prefer these to the canister filters cause of the whole outta sight outta mind thing, if they are where I can see them then I wont forget...LOL), undergravel filter w/carbon outlets, and a Hi-Lite aquarium lighting system( these are great for spotlighting something or above the water for a shimmering affect at night), 1 20"coral sun lite(I only use one of these on one side cause it creates a cool cave like effect during the day)
Advice: Don't believe that American and South American Cichlids can't go together. That's a crock. We raised ours together and they do well.... Also, Keep a variety like our fish with our Tinfoil Barbs. They help keep down the tempermant of the tank. Ummm......Make sure you always treat your water for water changes. (I know. Like, Duh!)
Fish Kept: 1 Figure 8 Puffer ------------------ Loki: Hi. I love to swim up and down and the sides of the tank ALL day. I wish I wasn't such a picky eater. All I like to eat is live ghost shrimp but I will settle for cichlid flakes. 1 Crayfish ---------------------- Big Daddy 1 Firemouth Cichlid -------------- Queen (and in the backround) 2 Tinfoil Barbs ------------ Tweak & Spazz 1 Green Terror Cichlid ------ Green Terror 1 Ahli Electric Blue Cichlid ------- Bloo 1 Yellow Lab.

About Yourself: 2 of us have this tank. Me: Mikey, I am a culinary chef graduate. I have always had crazy amounts of animals. It started out with buying a betta then another for a friend. Then that graduated up to 6 bettas. From there we got a 10 gallon tank from a friend with a filter and turned it into a brackish tank and got some Cory Catfish and Cichlids and BAM!!!! Graduated up to 55 gal! LOL...Sad but True....HAHAHAHAHA. My right hand man Desmond, I met in culinary school. He took the sensible route and bought a couple in depths books and read them cover to cover and worked at Petco. He IS the walking Fish Encyclopedia. Try him. We dare ya.


You have a weird combination of fish together (and a crayfish) but you seem to be pulling it off so great job like jester i tried a blue lobster in a tank filled with aggressives he didn't make it to the bottom. fish avatar

Thanks for the comment. Your feedback helped regaurding the photos. I just got this computer and it's my first one so all this is new to me. Thanks again! fish avatar
How is your crayfish doing with the cichlids? They don't bother him? How big is she? I had one with 2 oscars years ago, but ended up a nice snack fish avatar
