Thanks for posting these. That tank looks really good actually..not sure about all the plants and how well they will do with the cichlids but otherwise cannot really see a problem at all.

Maybe not the greatest amount of space for them but I think with the depth should be fine...I like the big pond that you posted..that looks so cool, I would stock that with some massive cichlids - jealous much...nah

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

This is going to become another breeding pond for African cichlids (Haps,Peacocks and mbuna) as well as a Koi pond..pics up in an hour

Big jump from 150g to 17,000g. However 7 degrees celcius are very gold so you need to figure out how to heat that, especially from 7 degrees celcius you could be using 20+ kw of heating 24/7, which will make a hit on your energy bill.

Whats your water like, is it good for cichldis?
