Awesome flowerhorn there and awesome tanks jbones! But do you really have an oscar, pacu and pleco in the same tank as african cichlids as described? How to you keep their water appropriate for both new and old world cichlids. I guess I"ve seen plecos put in african cichlid tanks before but wondered the same thing as plecos need about the opposit pH and hardness to africans as do oscars and plecos.

amazing combo

I was just wondering what pH and hardness your water is. Apparently the fish have acclimated irregardless.

Great for the oscar, pleco and pacu....not so much for the africans during the long hall.
