Hi
I have finally took some pics of my Cichlid tank
The tank size is 6ft Length, 2 1/2ft

The Frame it is sat on is made from 4x4 timber and boxed in with Mdf and cupboards from a local store

150kg Ocean Rock
25Kg Coral Sand

The filteration is 1x Fluval 405 external,1 Fluval Internal, 1x Fishmate 15,000ltr Hr Bio Pond Filter powered by a 7000ltr Hr Pond Pump which sits in the tank under the rock and the bio filter under the tank with the fluval 405

I tank hood is made and in my garage and requires painting and finishing off and the tubes installed properley

I have around 60 cichlids in the tank, 2 Pleco, 1 bristlenose, and 3 small catfish which dont come out untill the lights have been turned off

There are two females currently holding young and should be ready to spitthem out soon, i have not got anywere to put them in so iam just going to let them defend for themselves.

The tank has adult and young in and the young in now are from what was left when they breed last time in my friends tank.

Yeah I mean that does make sense though for something that big. I mean do you really want to be moving that beast around when moving? lol. Not me anyway.

I like the sort of stark, crisp look you get from rock-only cichlid tanks, and I am suuuuper jealous of your tanksize
