Oh and once you get them, make sure to rinse them because a lot of them will be dead, and they will all be dead soon if you don't clean them. Put them in a cup with water from your tank and swirl...

I don't like twistie 2x4 studs either... I get "top choice" or whatever 1x4 pine (nice and straight and few knots) and laminate those together. Side by side for beams and L shape for legs.

Cichlids in my opinion are not very exciting to breed because they're so easy, much like guppies. As my fish mentor once said, "you get a male, you get a female, end of story."

I haven't built my own canopy yet, and the key word is "yet" because I've considered this myself. I too would be annoyed trying to work with light in my eyes and not in the tank. My solution is a...
