Bigstick's 55 gallon Cichlid Tank-Update-9-22

I wanted to show the evolution of my tank. I have learned so much form the folks on here and apperciate all of the insperation and info that you all provide. This is such a fun and rewarding hoddy when you get going. So here is the evoultion of my tank.

Stated out with a ton of rockwork and few plants

The tank was doing ok but I wanted it to really take off. I took out lot of rocks and added alot more plants. This is prior to pressurized CO2.

After CO2 the tank is great, I can grow almost any plant that I want to and I am starting to get sick of the weekly trimming But the reward is great, the fish are happy and breeding like they never did before and a real joy to watch.

And a few of my favorite fish

I am still changing alot, moving plants and trying to get it to look its best. I think that it lacks a little depth but some plants are still filling in and I have some things that I want to do yet. If you have any layout suggestions that would be apperciated. Thanks for looking
