Right now when my wife gets home she always sees me sticking my hand in my planted tank. If I have that big of a tank, she would see me swimming in the tank.

Just a little update.

The tank is now cycled and there are 3 silver aro's at 7'' to 8'' each.
I also have 9 orino cichla growing out in the 100g, they are 1-1/2'' each.

After the cichla are big enough to go in the 560g I am thinking of maybe getting a clown knife to grow out but I am not shure on that yet.

I tried to take pics of the fish but I really suck at taking pics, I may try later.

Any updates on this tank?

Advice for anyone new to the hobby: Do your research!! Before you do anything to your aquarium, take some time to research it. It has made a huge difference for me

S.A. Flooded Jungle (20 gallon)
A heavily planted tank. Inhabitants include: 7 Lemon Tetra, 1 Whiptail Catfish, and MTS.

Nothing really new as of now.

I did sell one of the silver aro's because of aggression and I also bought a tiger shovelnose catfish thinking it was a lima shovelnose. Knowing that the TSN will outgrow my tank fast and eat all of my other fish I will be getting rid of him as soon as I can find him a good home.

I will try to get pics soon.
