New aquarium and madness....

Well the 7 remaining Boesemani Rainbow fry have joined the community tank! Less than one hour and mom and pop, as well as the fry, identified with each other's swimming pattern and the two large adults were swimming between the fry and other community fish.
So on to the small ciclid tank. This is a well established tank with live plants, etc.. I may have missed stocked the tank though...
Now I need to know whether or not I have made a potential mistake. I bought a beautiful juvenile fire-mouth ciclid and two jewel ciclidi. Now for the kicker - I purchased 6 large silver hatchet fish to school in the same aquarium figuring the fire-mouth and the hatchet fish may have to see each other in the wild?....? I suppose I will discover the results - probably the hatchet fish will dive out of the tank for cover... However - there are rock archways, heavy live plants, and a large piece of driftwood in the aquarium. Maybe it will be o.k. or maybe the ciclidi will have a better way to ambush the hatchet fish. I better keep feeding the fish....


And finally a photo update of me old planted community tank...

Full tank shot

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

"Madness", eh? Jumped in before thinking it through is a common fishtank blunder, not to worry. Live and learn.
Looks great, btw.
