Looks sharp. Check out my african cichlid tank as well.

Next tank I do will revolve around a couple of big pieces of driftwood.

I might start looking for some at the river soon.

i threw in some guppies for a week and after a few water tests the ammonia levels were zero so threw in 3 cichlids...then after 5 more days ammonia levels were still at zero so i threw in the rest. everythings running super smoothly so far :) poor little guppies were all eaten :P
