Post pics of your Cichlid tanks!
I'm thinking of re-doing my 30g tank since it's only stocked with a pleco (that's getting donated to the LFS) and two small mollies. In any case I think it's time to restock it and give it a whole new fresh look. Some pics will help stir some ideas.
Perferrably I'm looking for cichlid tank setups as this what I'm leaning towards. Any others are fine though.
Also try to list your full setup! Substrate, plants, filters etc. Thanks!

My 450 litres Central American tank, inhabited by Firemouths and T-bar Cichlids, as dither fish I keep an uncountable bunch of Mollies in all colors. The cleaning crew are Coydoa paleatus and C. adolfoii.
Then there lives a nice gang of Endlers Guppies in this tank, they have been meant as feeder fish, but they seem to be of a bad taste, cause they arnt eaten, but live happily on.
1 Eheim 2250
1 No-name filter for tanks up to 400 litres
1 300 Watt heater
Lighting: 3 HQL lamps
This is an old pic, those big plants have grown a lot and there are many "baby" plants....man I whish I could send you some of those....
