Hi all..... newbie here
Hello, new guy here. just wanted to introduce my self. My name is Shad I'm from MA and I recently aquired a 72"x18"x18" 100g aquarium as a tip for a tattoo I had done this past month. I cycled the tank testing the water once a day for about a week and introduced 3 african cichlids this morning. one is a jewel one is a red tiger (looks more like a straight up orange to me. lol) and one is a bumble bee. people are always asking why 100g for your first tank, I say WHY NOT!! lol well I hope to learn a lot here and I'll keep you all posted on he progression of my new underwater world.

sure did! he gave me the entire set up the only thing i needed to purchase was a few feet of 5/8 tubing for the filter, 2 air stones and filter medium. pretty sweet deal in my book. :D

How on EARTH did you get a tank like that to cycle in a week?????

Welcome Shad! I'm from MA also, so hopefully we can share local fishy tips.
100G is a great tank to start off with, much easier than a smaller tank cuz little mess ups don't effect the water so much!

Cause I'm good, lol. no, but really, the tank was still established the day I got it I replaced the filter medium but reused the biowheels and substrate this provided enough beneficial bacteria and all was well.

P.S it was established for 5+ years with african cichlids precisely what is in there now
