My 20h Electric Yellow Tank

Here are a few pictures of my 20H Electric Yellow tank.
Trying plants in this tank for the second time. The first time was a disaster!! They ate every plant I put in there, but that was all stem plants!

Hopefully the Amazon Sword, Java fern, and the Vals are all strong enough to survive! I am hoping the sword will fill in the center with the Vals behind it, and the fern will spread over the rocks.

Please let me know what you think!!

I have a question about your set up. Can a 20H be a permanent home for Electric Yellow's? I have a 20H and been thinking about setting it up as a cichlid tank. Nice rockwork btw.

I have a pair of electric yellows in my 75 gal. African tank and they are about 4 inches long and can be very aggressive sometimes.So I'd say 20 gal is ok if you get them when tehy are very small but plan on moving them within a year or so.

That's a great tank. It's very similar to my 30 gal for my dwarf cichlids ( I should post some pics). You will love it when the ferns get bigger!
