Started this tank about 2 month ago. Still learning as I go. I got inspired when I saw the display tank at my lfs. It use to house African cichlids for over 3 year but there is alway problem with them fighting and killing off each other over the year To the point that I just give up. Right now I'm going for the jungle theme. No co2 atm but I'm looking to getting 1 soon.
