New idea

hey freshwater keepers. im coming to see if yall had any ideas what i should put in my 26 gallon bow front tank. i been looking at everything i could put in this tank that it is in my budget. i havent got the tank yet but i will have it by the end of next month. i plan to put cichlids in this tank, i know everyone will tell me "hey you need a 55 gallon tank for them" or "tank to small need bigger one". well im not spending 200+ on a tank. plus i had about 10 cichlids in my 10 gallon tank and the did fine until my last 5 died of ich that is what the petsmart people told me. i think i clean off the bio filter on accident. so any way im jusst looking for what to put on in the tank like gravel sand etc. and i if you have a bow front tank tell me or show me what is in your tank thanks

o yeah i will show you the trip to my petsmart (maybe) and what i bought and the whole set up on youtube

this pretty much means the fish were stressed out/in a bad situation for them. they don't get ich is nothing else is wrong.
