In agreement- perfect set up for rift lake cichlids. And that will get you a great active tank with some really wonderfully bright fish. Awesome tank for it!

20 Long: 4 albino Corycats, 4 red line tetra's, 6 Black Neon Tetra's, 1 Rubber lipped pleco- 8 years old now, never grew! 1 Blue Dwarf Gourami.

5.5ga- 5 neon tetra's

I have green things with leafs.

Note's from Bradley: "Meow." "Yes I did say meow, and I meant it."

Note from Kiera: "Can I Play with it? Can I play with it? Can I play with it? Please? Please? Please?"

Thanks everyone! I am really excited and can't wait to start adding fish.

I am not sure what type of chiclids I'm going to add to it. I really want to get some really unique fish in it!

If you're looking for something a little different, I think that tank would look great with a colony of Astatotilapia Latifasciata (I think it may now be considered Haplichromis Latifasciata, though). They're an extremely attractive African Cichlid from some small lakes north of lake Victoria. They're believed to be extinct in the wild, but they're pretty common in the hobby here in the states.
90 Gallon
1 Julidochromis Marlieri
2 Neolamprologus Leleupi
4 Neolamprologus Brevis
1 juvenile Altolamprologus Calvus
1 juvenile Altolamprologus Compressiceps
1 Neolamprologus Brichardi
10 Cyprichromis Leptosoma
1 Opthalmotilapia Ventralis

10 Gallon
Breeding pair of Brevis

Beautiful tank, trentm! At the risk of being repetitious, It does make me think "rift lake!" I can already see african cichlids playing happily in those rocks...
20 gal; well planted
2 angelfish
4 cherrybarbs
5 cardinal tetras
1 dwarf gourami
3 oto catfish
1 bristlenose pleco
1 crown tail betta
2 rasboras
1 cory cat
a few shrimp
