State: New York
Country: United States
Description: Work in progress... 5 week old 75 Gallon Cichlids tank with 1 EMP 400, Ehiem 2028 Pro II Hydor 300 Watt Heater, Hydor Koralia 3, Hydor Ario 4, Two 48" T12 Actinic Deep Sea Bulbs and One T5 48" Colormax Full Spectrum 6700K, Coralife Titanium Ground Probe Tons of caves and hiding spaces with corridors for behind the scene travel from cave to cave.
Advice: Read Everything! Have patients... Nothing happens overnight! When in doubt Test It!
Fish Kept: Community of Lake Malawi Mbuna's... Mostly Zebras, Yellow Labs, Bumble Bee Cichlids, Red tops Cobalt Blues, Blue Dolphins, Auratus, Johannii and several Red Tops, Kenyi and Albinos...
Corals/Plants: <p>Substrate & Rock:<br /> Texas Holy Rock, Tufa Rock, Lava Rock, Crushed Coral, Large Rock Gravel, and Pseudo Plants.</p> <p> Strategically placed rock that creates cavernous caves and hidden travel corridors. I used Texas Holy rock & Tufa rocks that were placed on layer of large chunks of gravel, then covered with crushed coral. Cichlids love to dig, however the larger gravel supports and prevent an eager cichlid from playing contractor. </p>
Tank Size: 75 gallons
