I'm a huge fan of Parachromis cichlids, especially managuense. They tend to get fairly large though, so if I went with a parachromis, it'd probably be a friedrichsthalii, motaguense, or loisellei....

That sounds like a good plan. I'm sure GTs are enough of a wet pet that Kai will more than fill the tank by himself, both physically and personality wise. I look forward to seeing how the aquascape...

Kai looks great! I really enjoy the aquascape. Now that you won't be breeding anymore, do you plan on adding any tank mates for him?

Those look like detritus worms to me. They aren't harmful, and once the tank is cycled, your new fish will likely eat them up.

Thanks! I'm gonna get one of those for a 5.5g tank I'm setting up soon. In addition to adding a third stone to the tank, I think a background of some sort will really make the tank pop as well as...

I feed my rams and tetras NLS Thera-A, Ken's premium tropical flakes, and bloodworms once a week. Plecos, otos, and amano shrimp get zucchini and Ken's veggie wafers. My betta gets NLS betta pellets.

Thank you! That's what I was going for. I'm hoping eventually half the tank along the diagonal will be crowded with plants for a jungle-y feeling while the other half is open so the fish can swim in...

I like it so far. It's definitely a lot of filtration for the tank, but that allows me to go awhile without having to clean the canister (besides switching out filter floss every now and then). It's...

I currently have a 2217 on my 20g long with lily pipes and an inline heater. Is it overkill? In my opinion, yes, but the only reason I'm using it was because I got it for 20 dollars off of...

Nice aquariums! They all have a distinct look to them. Your fish are also very beautiful, especially Sally and Black Phillip. What do you usually feed your cichlids?
