    I figured since people enjoyed my little clip of my main tank I would start a journal for it. Now I don't have many plans for this tank in the near future. However I figure I would give you all a feeding clip. Also put out there what I am using for filters. Maybe someone could have a pointer for me here or there always open to suggestions. I also know the tank is a little over stocked and I do plan on trying to get a tank at least twice this size within the next year or so.
    Fish
    Florida Gar

    Blue Nile Tilapia
    A Lot of small snails
    Plants
    Two Marimo moss balls
    might be adding more my floating basket is working good.
    Filters
    2X HW-304B SunSun canisters both with 9W UV lamp
    1 HOB Marineland Bio-wheel Emperor 40 power filter

    Here is a feeding Clip kinda long I try to keep everyone full to cut down on aggression. Plus now I gotta do a water change tomorrow.

    They were just small shinners. It would take him around a month and a half to clean them all out.

    Plants and cichlids don't work well if the plants are in the substrate. The cichlids will eventually dig to the bottom of the tank. You will either need to pot the plants, protect the plant roots with large rocks that cannot be moved, or use plants that can be attached to driftwood.

    I do know exactly what you are talking about I just got to many plants. I am also using a floating refuge I made for the java moss. I made a plant protected a few weeks ago so we will see how it works. I put one of the plants on the DW in the tank. Maybe anyone could let me know if this plant will take to it or not. Otherwise I could switch it with one of the other plants I got.

    Swords need substrate. You will need plants that do not need substrate like moss and anubias. These can actually be super glude to the driftwood.
