Last summer I celebrated finishing my first year of grad school by spoiling myself with a 135G tank build. It was a fun process from refurbishing the tank, stand, and canopy through to the selection of stocking. Linked below is a playlist detailing the early stages and development of the aquarium.

The stocking currently consists of a pair of Chocolate cichlids (Hypselecara temporalis), a small group of Geophagus sp. 'Red Head Tapajos', a trio of Heros Severums, a trio of Synplisum cichlids, and a few oddballs. It's a well packed tank and will likely need some residents rehomed as they progress. I figured I could determine which groups would pair off the best.
So far the male chocolate cichlid is the king of the tank. He's already bred a few times with the companion chocolate cichlid however I haven't had success raising the fry. I'll stop talking and show some pictures.
This is a semi-recent FTS. Probably from about 2 months ago.
Geophagus 'Red Head Tapajos'
Hershey the King Chocolate Bar I mean cichlid
One of the trio of severums. I love these guys. I'd be tempted to do an entire tank of them!
Synplisum - These guys have started showing a ton of color
And because I need to show off at least one of the oddballs (I don't have many pictures of them)...here's a shot of the tiretrack eel. These guys are fun to watch.
