Amandas tank Pretty cool! Anubias species would be good...and a bunch of rocks for the A. Cichlids to find territories/caves.

Attach the Anubias to the rocks and walla! Done

Basilisk Just came across this. Looks great, but that is the Aztec calendar. The Mayan one looks very different.

I've caught Salvini and a Thorichthyis species just 1-2 miles from the Palenque ruins. It is worth noting that river is infested with nasty common plecos.

You didn't buy this off of Craigslist? I saw a similar one for sale around here not too long ago (actually maybe a few months or so).

I have to agree with AirstoND, at least that's what I would do.

But if you are stuck on Africans, then you would obviously have/want to go with the hardier plants, like anubias, "ferns", maybe jungle val, etc.

I'm pretty sure you know this, but with Africans, they prefer to have multiple hiding places (e.g. rocks).
No i was the one selling it on craigs lol didnt even get a bid smh. Was asking for $600 including everything... Lights, aquaclear 110 filters, 75 gallon tank, super nice stand, and custom background. Only text i got was from a drug dealer who said he found my background on ebay for $25 bucks smg go figure. After i finished it i fell in love with it! Cant sell it now for sure.

reefboi16 Plenty of nice colors in South American fish also. Rams, Bolivian rams, apiatogrammas, rainbow cichlids, cockatoo cichlids, red star flower horns, salvini, green terrors..and the list goes on.

reefboi16 It just looks weird to have African cichlids in a Mayan themed tank.
