Hi All! Thanks for taking a look any feedback is welcome!
I took my retired 36 Gal cichlid tank (some minor scratches on glass<sorry>) and cleaned it up and got ready to go. I got started today and am so excited to share!
I am using the following:
40lbs Eco-Complete Black
20lbs Black Sand
2 pcs Mopani
1 pc Driftwood
Penguin 200 Bio-Wheel Filter
150w Heat Stick (Deep Blue)
55w Power Compact 7000k
*1 Looking for a way to also add on the traditional strip light to up total watts. Advice is appreciated.

Sky: I think I am liking it so far. I ended up going pretty deep substrate wise. THe sand cap makes planting fairly easy and I added fish pretty quickly after setup. I think the Eco-Complete aided in establishing the tank quickly. I hope to see a lot of growth soon, as the root systems develop in the EC.
Drew: Thanks! I am planning on upping the total number of Cardinals to 11. I am also looking for a nice shoal/school for the top water section. I am thinking either threadfin rainbows or some hatchets.
Hi HybridHerp, I didn't think of that with the threadfins. I will likely go with hatchets. Also, great tip on the snails. These are the first I have ever had. I will keep a close eye. It's funny you mention Ottos, I have 5 in QT right now. I will add them Monday. I am about check out your tanks. Thanks for the feedback!
Mini Re-scape added Dwarf Hair Grass from package at Petsmart. New Photos!
A nice little update. I think this will look great in a couple of weeks. I moved a few Crypts and made a nice little area for the Dwarf Hair Grass from Petsmart. Let me know what you think. Thanks!
Moved a nice little Crypt to a new home

I can't wait to watch these grow!
How do you like the placement?
