I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
I would also go with the home testing kit since the lfs indeed only tells you things like "everything looks ok" "or <blank> is a little high" which isnt very helpful. I also use the API master test kit as well as other test kits for general hardness, alkalinity, and wide range pH. May be picking up another kit as well that handles CO2, iron, copper, etc
ok well just because you can put more cichlids in your tank doesnt mean you want 20 of them in there. Its to much. Plus you will need to have excellent filtration to pull it off. Yellow labs can grow to like 5 inches, so imagine 20 5 inch fish in your tank and imagine how small it will be and all the work you will have to do to keep a clean healthy tank. If you are just starting off go slow, get like 3 to 5 small ones. You have to think that yeah you can overstock cichlids but not by much, and you will have to keep the water qualiyt good in the process.
