Looks sharp. Check out my african cichlid tank as well.

Next tank I do will revolve around a couple of big pieces of driftwood.

I might start looking for some at the river soon.

Very nice! Keep an eye on water parameters and fish wil do the rest.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

welcome :)
how did you cycle in two weeks ?
the tank looks lovely.

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.

i threw in some guppies for a week and after a few water tests the ammonia levels were zero so threw in 3 cichlids...then after 5 more days ammonia levels were still at zero so i threw in the rest. everythings running super smoothly so far :) poor little guppies were all eaten :P
