    Herrooo there fish lovers, i came here trying to find a good forums when i have fishy emergencies or when i want someone to appreciate what i put my time into <.< hehe.

    between my boyfriend and I we have 3 freshwater aquariums and a rescue tank for my yellow bellied slider

    we currently have stocked:
    75g freshwater with a cannister filtration system, cichlid sand/shell substrate that we recently(like 2 days ago) took out around 15 medium cichlids, and replaced with
    1 large(6-7inch) pleco
    1 3-4 inch red devil cichlid(mostly white)
    1 electric blue crawdad
    1 5-6 inch silver arowana

    75g freshwater planted 2 HOB 75gph carbon stacked filters, 400 airpump split between 2 airstones and a bubble curtain, an atinic blue strip light + daylight light ceramic pots and natural stones+ plants for deco stocked with:
    ~30 cichlids + bottom feeders, ill try to name some and upload whatever pics i can find.
    2 large cobalt blue
    3 yellow labs
    3-4 assorted colors and sized peacocks
    1 red devil
    3 small plecos
    1 peppered corydora
    1 golden dojo weather loach
    1 medium jack dempsey
    2 small mooriis
    1 yellow arotus
    1 electric blue krib? im really not sure what that guy is and these spellings are horrendous i know.
    1 frontosa
    1 buttersomethingcantremember

    basically a terrible amount of cichlids, but the tank has great cycle power, crystal clear, and my ammonia is basically 0 to minimal.

    ive recently painted the sides black and switched up the decorations, my actual glass is really old so it looks hazy in pics, but barely noticeable in person, + 15 more large cichlids have been added and a bunch of anacharis :D

    i also have a 10g with a 30-55g powerhead + 200 airpump and tons of plants with
    3 mystery snails
    a 3 legged frog
    2 guppies
    2 platys
    3 mollies
    kind of overstocked but my filter keeps it super clean along with the plants, ill get pictures of it soon, its a fairly newly set up tank

    nice to meet you guys i hope i can contribute with what knowledge i have but i wont argue with good ideas because aquariums are a lot about leaving them alone and letting mother nature do its ~beautiful~ work.

    Welcome to AC. Will look forward to pictures of your tanks.

    Your stock is "interesting". Mbuna, Peacocks, North/Central cichlids and
    Lake Tanganyika all together?

    Welcome to AC. The stock you have all require different ph and gh/kh levels and your actinics do nothing for freshwater plants.

    i only have one actinic bulb, the other is daylight, and yea they are all together, they all come from the same water and seem to do great together.
