55 gallon 7 bar Frontosa tank
I have my 55g set up and finished.

6 7 bar Frontosa (parents wild caught 1st gen)
3 OB peacock (1 male 2 female breeders)
1 Midnight blue peacock (Male, same size as OB male)
5 Dolphins
1 Julidochromis

The tank is focused around the frontosa. As they get larger the Julidochromis and the Peacock cichlids may have to go if I am unable to upgrade to at least a 120. The fronts are camera shy and hide whenever i get close to the tank with something strange in my hand so it is hard to get good pictures of them but there are 6 of them in there lol.

I do a 20% water change every week and 50% every so often. I replace the filters in all my tanks every month or so.

There is a 10 gallon breeder tank inside of the 55g stand. That has OB peacock fry in egg tumblers and breeder nets. That tank gets a gallon of new water every 2 days and it is wayyyyyyy over filtered.
flash on.
flash off.

And then one more for my green terror. I don't know what size tank he is in ( it looks like a 29 gallon from the front but is like twice as long in depth.) His name is Leo and is the only fish i have ever named, haha I guess that shows how much I like him.
