It looks really nice, lots of fun things for your fish to swim through.
I looked at your aquarium info, you listed your ammonia as toxic?

the ammonia problem got out of hand so I started over. I got bio-spira and the fish and cycled in four days.

very nice looking tank. I have a question for you, do you find that there are enough hiding places and that the fish are getting along ok? I ask because you have some of the same fish we were thinking of for our 40 gallon tank. how do they get along so far?

I have 12 african cichlids in my tank. they get along okay as long as they are feed enough. they are very aggressive but they swim very fast. they dig holes in my substrate and hide underneth rocks, plants, inside my colliseum, between leaves, anywhere you can imagine. overall they do get along.

the guy my husband was talking to said to start with a pair of Labidochromis and a pair of Elongatus Mbuna.

I noticed you've got auratus and kenyI in your tank... I have four cichlids in a 20 gallon (and a couple other fish) and they're SUPER aggressive. Be warned you may need to upgrade to a larger tank after a while. Especially if most of your fish are male.

It looks great!! I hope they don't dig your stuff up! as they grow they get to digging bigger and bigger holes, and they will dig your plants, even fake ones up.
BTW beware of the KenyI and the Aurtus. I had to give one of the two species up. I got rid of the Auratus (sp). Those are both the most extremly aggressive cichlids. My tank is much more peaceful w/o them! I picked the kenyI because of their beauty, they were also a lot less aggressive than the other.
Also the 55 is plenty for the amount of cichlids you have as long as you have ample filitration, we also have a 55, w/ 12 cichlids, and 2 plecos (one pleco is getting moved when I take my rocks out sat so I can catch it). They actually say up to 15 cichlids for 55 gallon is fine.

what kind of substrate is that, I see sand and what did you mix it with? I want to put that in my 20 gallon.

Very Nice! Well executed. But did you say it's finished? An aquarium is never finished... there's always the newst "gotta have it!" thing at the LFS.

Wow!, that is beautiful .
I'm getting a 32G tank soon, I'm stuck on my choice of stocking, its either going to be amazon fish like cardinals or african cichlids,
if I choose cichlids, how many could I keep in a 32G tank?
