I can't believe what I am seeing and reading!!! You are the Super Woman if the Aquarium World!!!

First I can't believe the first 54g build held up, and then you added on to it, and it is still together even after 2 earth quakes and on those stands to boot! HOLY COW CHIPS BATMAN!!! You sure have the touch!!!!

I LOVE the Layout od the wood and rocks!!! I also can't believe the Africans are not destroying everything in site! I have had africans for 20+ years, and they have NEVER left anything alone!!! From Substrate to rocks that were in piles, those little rascals ALWAYS moved something around!!! I am wondering if it is the ammount of caves/rockpiles and the driftwood and plants that have them content with their suroundings and is keeping them from remodeling? OR the overall dimentions of the tank? You have a large footprint, so maybe they aren't cramped up? BUT the Local Fish Store that I used to work at and was Owned by a Good Friend had a Custom/Hand built 540g Tank, and when we had Africans in it they were always digging and moving rocks and plants! ?????

I just don't understand their behavior!!! But how ever you are doing it it is FREAKIN AWESOME!!!

About how big is the average fish in the aquarium now?

Also what is the brand and type of substrate you have in the tank now? It looks pretty fine, and I am planning on setting up a Shell Dweller tank pretty soon, and would like to find the same stuff!

Well keep up the AWESOME WORK on the tank and fish, and I will keep on watching in amazement!!!

AWESOME TANK!!!!!!
Drew
Waw Drew thank you so so much!! I'm very hapoy u like!!
My fish do dig the sand a bit but they won't touch the rooted vasileria plants, maybe there's really lots of caves n they are content!?

Most my fish are between 2.5 -5 inch and now I adopted my biggest resident , a 4 yrs old rusty male that was sole habitant of my friends thank cuz she said he killed everyone else... Hmmm well it's been now 3 days I have him... Aside normal cichlid chasing behaviour, the boy is a real angel haha... Dunno what she was talking about saying he is serial killer ... I think Frankenstein tank has something magical cuz everyone lives peacefully and I got like 40 fish of all kinda in just 108 gallons... And they breed... Nonstop lol!!
But soon I will get them bigger tank just waiting for them I outgrow it

Thanks again for ur amazing feedback in interest! Check out my linked vids n channel, as today I've reached 87 videos

This is easily one of the best looking tanks I've seen in these journals lately. You have a great eye and unique style.
