    Just bought 100lbs of pool filter sand for my new 55 gallon tank. I want to keep the the Decor (Rocks) I put in a light color to match the sand. Any suggestions? Is there any "live" rock for saltwater tanks? (this tank will be around 8.0ph with african cichlids. And lastly i want to purchase artificial plants, which are the best meaning they look the most realistic? Thanks.

    Just scroll down to Decorations and it talks about what rocks are best for those fish. The author of the article uses limestone with plenty of holes to give the fish tunnels to hide and sleep. There are planty of other suggestions as well.
