That is a very nice set up. Great pics too. thumbs2:

You must be very happy with a tank that size to play with. :ssmile:

thanks, the only one thing we were worried about was if the 2nd floor's floor could hold the 1000 lb tank but so far so good

If it is evenly distributed, the floor is level and you have it across the floor supports not running level in the same direction and your house is quite new you should be ok. The tank will also get more support as it backs onto a wall which helps. :ssmile:

thanks, yeah actually i got some fish on saturday and i actually took this picture on saturday so you cant see the fish cause they were all hiding cause i had just put them in. But anyway i decided to make a community african cichlid tank and so far have 2 electric blue haps, 1 black comprecciceps, 2 yellow cichlids i think theyre electric yellow labs, 1 synodontis catfish, 2 clown loaches, and a couple other cichlids which i had forgotten theyre names, but ill add pictures in a little bit.

Very nice.

Nice tank! thumbs2:

Good size tank. You might want to get a few more loaches as even two can get lonely. They like groups. IMO at least 4-5. And you have the room too. Watch that your africans don't bully them!

thanks guys! yeah i got all the fish about the same size to minimize bullying except the synodontis hes about 5in. long and all the others are from about 1.5 to maybe 3in. long but do you guys think that i should add some rocks to the tank because origanally i was planning on making it an amazonian tank but decided to go with african cichlids.:18:

are you sure it's 100g?

I was just thinking it usually goes 55g, 75g, 95g and mine is like a 95 but extra tall making it 110g

But 95g is close to 100g so even if it's 95 i too would probably call it a 100g tank for simplicity sake.

I was just curious....

Nice looking tank. I too would fill it to the top though. Looks much nicer to not have a water line.

Yes, you definitely need the rockwork, and lots of it for Africans!!!

01-17-2009, 02:24 PM
it was sold at the store for 100g unless they just marked it as that its a 100g. Anyway thanks guys for the info ill be sure to put some rockwork in it thats why i havent filled it up all the way because the rocks will probably raise the water level.
