thanks for the comments folks.. Normally i just suck it up during water changes etc which is fine but thought there might be a wee trick for other people who use sand as substrate.
This is the 1st...

Hi folks.. Been a while since i've posted on here but back again..
Im thinking of adding an external filter to my Juwel Trigon 190 corner tank.
At the minute I have the internal filter running...
Mommy - yes you mentioned the congos.. will wait and see what's in store when I go.. was meant to go today but the weather has been miserable. .
I think once I add the ellioti that will probably...
Nice looking tank.
Appreciate the feedback.
I'm going to add my dither fish first.. could be a school of tetras/barbs/live bearers etc..
I've still more rocks and decor to add while I wait...
Finally! Lights are in. Heater cane today.
Temperature is starting to rise nicely. Should be up by morning. Tank is fully cycled and ready to rumble. I've a few nerite snails in there...
Congos are a good possibility. Always wanted to keep a few of those and a nice sized group would work well
Ok so I'm hopefully going to add 4 ellioti to my 200 litre tank providing I can source them. . And then hopefully I will cut that down further to 2 females.. no breeding wanted. .
But I'm thinking...
Still working over a few options for this tank.. Was hoping to get an external filter for this tank and go down the hap/peacock route with rocks caves landscape etc but i've ended up getting 1 of the...
Finally we have made a proper start and progress!

Thanks for the replies guys. I may avoid the sevs then. Just not sure on what I want for it. Have been thinking about fire mouth maybe as they don't get as large as the sevs.
Any thoughts on what...

Got a juwel trigon 190 litre tank in the process of putting together. I had severums before in my 4 foot tank but this has a different foot print than that tank so would or be possible to keep a few...
Haps/peacocks maybe? Would give me plenty of vivid colours and activity.
Or maybe 1 or 2 slightly bigger fish? Severum? Firemouth? Convicts?
I remember someone named a cichlid that...

More or less add the title says. I'm air to set up a juwel trigon 190litre corner tank and want to go down thr the all cichlids route and thinking of peacocks. Not interested in breeding so it will...
male peacocks maybe? would this work?
anybody suggest species of cichlids that would work well in this tank?
the footprint is a bit smaller than 4ft long but should still be enough space to house a few of them.
preferably males to...
Been a while since I posted regularly on here but I'm always more floating about and reading topics etc just now a days.
Some of you might remember about 2 years ago I had to give up my 4ft tank...
you should read the books ... awesome
if there is plenty of plant cover for them they will be grand. I've got them in with my betta and ive hundreds. I do see him trying to hunt them but they bounce out of the way before he gets them. Im...
That's what cichlids do. When i kept kribs they claimed near every inch of a 4 foot long tank and had my huge severum nailed into the corner. that's their nature. if the eggs hatch you can feed the...
