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 hobby

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
