Photo Caption:Ive had this tank for under a year
now. I have a 125 gallon tank made
into a community tank with assorted
South African Cichlids, a Albino and
a Tiger Oscar, Afra Cichlid, Tiger
Barbs, Severums, Tire Track and a
Peacock Eel, Danio Minnows, Red Tail
Rainbow Shark, Silver Dollars,
Plecos and more...
I use a 48" T5 double ballast light,
a Fluval405 filter, Aqueon 30-60
waterfall filter. I have Led lights
for a little extra color and a
curtain wand to keep the fish more
active. Most of my plants are
artificial but I have 50 lbs of live
rocks in there for the new small
cichlids that were born. I have a
splitter in tank to separate Albino
Oscar since he ate a dozen of my
other cichlids in there. I have a
little over 50 fish in there right
now. I had an addiction to buy.
Slowing down letting it chill and
run their course. Enjoyable little
Description: Starter community tank just figuring out species.
Simple set up with live rocks, 2 40 inch L.E.D. tubes with bubble 48" curtain bubbler. 2 set of dome lights 240w output daylights. T5 HO Lights on the way with lumen moonlighting. I also have a 225 L.E.D. for them at night.All lights on remote control switch relay. I have 2 waterfall filters up top One with a Ammonia Nitrate Nitrite Pouch and Other a Sponge and a Fluval405 (8 Compartments for filters) Cannister Filter below that has zeocarb, biomax, and carb filter, and ammonia nitrate nitrite remover.
Advice: Plan what you want to do with the tank otherwise be ready to spend a whole lot of money on fish. Also if your starting community and unaware if they are compatible keep a night light for them cause they may get eaten over night
