New 55 Gal Tank Setup for African Cichlids.

So i cleaned out my 55 Gal tank, painted the back Black, laid out the rockwork, connected a Fluval 406 Canister filter (bck right corner) and have a Topfin 60 HOB filter on the back left.

used Pool Filter Sand and Aragnite for substrate, about 2" deep. Noticed I laide the rock work first so if the Cichlids I get decide to dig, the rockwork is all ready lying on the bottom glass.

Light is a 48 T5 HO light with one bulb 10,000K and the other Actinic.

Just filled the tank up last night, and begining the cycling process tomorrow with ammonia and the bacteria in a bottle. for fishless cycle will probably add plants after two weeks, letting the bacterial grow some first and then add 5-7 juvenile fish.....

More pics to come later.
