OMGosh I love the 2nd tank! I know nothing about cichlids - I'm assuming you have shell dwellers in there? Those little white fish with the yellow dorsals are beautiful. I keep columbian too, aren't they fantastic fish? I keep mine with tiger barbs and they get on great. I just love how eager they are at feeding time : )
Please excuse my spelling and lack of paragraphs - its my phone's fault!
80gal low light planted tiger barb/columbian tetra/BN plec tank
