New Member :D Peaceypea Intro:
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.
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
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
AND I CANT WAIT FOR BABIES :DDDDD.
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.

thanks!!! im already finding a lot of interesting things
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.
and honestly most of the fish were all babies from the same ph levels and have been in water with the same parameters so im not too worried about the climate, if there were issues with it the fish i have now wouldnt be alive, but yes my 75g is sort of the "catch all" tank of the house.
Welcome to the community.
I see the dog finds the tank interesting, too XD
