Update on cichlids

Ok so I now bought a new filter for my cichlids and some different kinds of plants because I didnt care for the others so what does everybody think? The first pic is a video if you click on it then you can watch it.

the pictures are really great,and wow that gravel is fantastic !!

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.

It is a 55 gal and it has more cave than the ones that you can see in the front the cichlids also use the cave formations on the back glass and they hide out underneath the terraces. Also they share some of the rocks they have dug caves underneath them and the rock in the middle has 4 of the cichlids living underneath it.

Very nice tank! I like how you have the rocks coming off of the sides and back. Your cichlids are beautiful too :)

20 gallon long:2 freshwater dwarf puffers (Puff Puff and Poofer); medium-light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Wormy; low light planted tank
