    Default My 125 gallon African Cichlid Aquarium


    2 Not allowed!
    Hey guys, just broke down (2) 55 gallon aquariums and got a 125 gallon aquarium to replace them!



    Running a marineland c-360 and a c-530. Total output 890GPH.

    18 mbuna
    5 haps
    1 peacock
    1 bristlenose pleco
    1 pictus cat

    Also 2 convicts and 2 jack dempseys, looking to find a home for them. The aquascape is crushed coral substrate and a mix of blue slate and larger rocks from a local nursery. Running 3 led lights up top.

    Criticism and comments welcome.

    Unique. Very Unique. I like it. What is the long fish just left of center?

    I am seriously considering an Mbuna tank in the near future... Probably a 55 Gallon.
    It's my kids fault I am hooked on this hobby... It all started with a Desktop 5 Gallon Father's Day Gift!

    It was a panorama photo so the fish look stretched out from moving

    Your tank looks great, I always wanted an African cichlid tank with a rock cave wall since I started with fish keeping, but never got one. I always thought African cichlids reminded me of saltwater fish, they are so colorful. Do you have anything like styrofoam under the rocks to absorb any pressure? Always wondered about that. Do you glue the rocks together, or just make sure they are solidly stacked?
