Crispy's LFS 90g showtank?!
My LFS is quite impressed with my setup and the owner wants me to setup a 90g fw showtank in the store. He is 80% sw, but wants to show off a sweet fw setup. He'll order whatever fish I choose. So I got some thinking to do... probably some rarer cichlids?? open to any and all suggestions..
Through all of this, I'll be hangin' out and gonna help him maintain some sw tanks to get some sw experience. He has 2x 180g sw showtanks just full of different corals/fish.. it's just a small LFS with only one employee (the owner) and tanks are kept in good condition. I'll try to get pics when I'm there this week. This should be a very fun experience!Thar she blows!!!

So I popped by the store for a chat and now he wants me to setup 2 90g tanks. One african and one SA/CA. He has some beautiful white calvus that he wants part of the african display, so I may add some of my baby kigomas and possibly one or two malawi eye biters for starters.
Still thinking some geos and maybe a single severum or similar for the SA... gonna take my time and see what he can order.Thar she blows!!!
