First Cichlid Tank

Very bad mixture of fix from lack of experience and very poor service at LFS fml....

Surprisingly though this mix of fish actually sort of works! They are quite friendly with each other and they actually love hanging out with each other including the Clown Loaches.

In this tank is
3x Giraffe Cichlids (m,m,m)
1x Crimson Tide (m)
2x Red Forest Jewel (m,m)
2x Clown Loaches (sex unknown)
1x Crimson Tide fry (sex unknown)

Have no fear though, I am finding new homes for these fish and since I have made these many many mistakes with this tank I have been planning the re-do of this tank very well. I have seeked advice on many many things on this forum (thank god for AC!) and it is coming along nicely, although I am changing from cichlids to community fish until I get another tank (hopefully not to far away) :-)

I am also sorry about the poor quality of pictures but I can't take many good ones, I still haven't gotten to purchase a new light for them since their old one burnt out, I have actually gotten the LED neons off the ZX-7R and drilled them to the fish tank hood. Although I have the option to change the colour of their tank now it just doesnt lighten it up very much during the day but it all looks pretty cool at night ;-)
