I'm sure there is much more! I am going to order everything from Foster & Smith I think.
Yay, I just ordered my new 90gal All-Glass Aquarium at the lfs! Got it for ~190 + 20% off all accessories if I buy them there.
I've also added Prime Water conditioner and "Special Blend" to the list!
:cry: I'm very surprised no-one's commented! Where is everyone???
Congrats on ordering your tank! :D I don't know anything about the equipment but it all sound very nice.
haha thanks! Hopefully it is correct, I have to put the order in pretty soon. Getting excited!
Jost got my tank yesterday, its big! Now I just need everything else....
Hi, i would get stones African cichlids need a lot of hiding places. Have a look at the photos in the picture section, it might give you ideas. Can't comment on the equipment part as i don't know the brands you are buying. Which specific fish are you putting in?
I was originally going to Cichlids but now I'm not so sure...I wanted a planted tank but African Cichlids apparently aren't so good for that.
Jsm, go with discus and other South American fish, I say.:twisted:
Ditch the Africans off your list.http://www.tropicalfish.site5.com/ubb/wink.gif
