45G Cichlid Tank, 10G Community, and 1G Guppy Pics!

So I changed a couple things in the 45, the goldfish was removed, a flower pot was put in and the fish love it, then I bought a piece of slate and put together a little cave structure that the fish also love. I think the tank looks better now b/c it's not just plants...

Here's some pics of the tank today and its occupants :)

BEFORE (yesterday):



AFTER (this morning)



The Oscar, Parrot, and Jack Dempsey hanging out near the cave



The Albino Oscar and the Parrot



Mr. Convict always guarding "his" rock....annoying



The 10 Gallon today...looks decent



Filtered 1-Gal Guppy Tank! The light actually keeps the water around 74-75!



Close Up



Comments are greatly appreciated

hi
i actually liked the way you had it before
it does still look very nice though and i'm glad the fish like it.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Thanks,

I did like it before, but since the Convict has already claimed his territory, the other Cichlids had no where to hide or anything, so this gives them a couple more options...

They all look great. I especially like the 10G.

And FYI, that is a 46G Bowfront, not a 45.
