Yeah, I know I'm overstocked for that size tank. The tinfoils were given to me, and I will be looking for a home for them soon, since they are now already about 7in long each. The jack dempsey is also about 7 in long. I've had him forever I think. Didn't know he'd be SO hardy!!! I have two power filters and a power head on this tank which help with filtration for this tank. But they actually do quite well ( I don't know how!). I really like the parrot cichlid, and would like more of them I think. But I don't they'd all fit. One of my gold severum is actually orange and white, like a goldfish. His color stands out so well!
Oh, and they ate all the anubias and java fern I tried before!! I have nothing but plastic in there right now. (which, of course, they keep digging up!)
