Hello all, I'm new to the forum but been coming here for years. I've kept a lot of different fish over the years but I fell in love with big beautiful cichlids. I've had multiple cichlid tanks from breeding red devils to a 150 g mixed cichlid tank. I recently purchased a 250 gallon marineland Deep dimension tank(60"L x 36"W x 29"H) and I cannot wait to start this journey, so I thought I'd share it with you all. This is not going to be a fast process as I have to frame out and finish the room in the basement as well as tear out a door frame to fit this sucker into the basement Haha. But I will keep you posted with all the progress I make. I plan to have diy led flood lights and I would like to build a custom fluidized bed sump. Any input along the way would be great. I will post a few pics of the tank. It is still at the sellers house will be picking up monday!!! Wish me luck.
