    Well, since i wont be getting any tanks soon, i decided to change the 35 a little bit. I will switch to sand substrate simply because the fish will enjoy it more, and so will my raphael cat. Also... i havent quite decided yet, but i want to make an addition to the tank as well while i rescape, but i am unsure yet.

    Sounds cool Tony :) Your fish will love the sand! I have sand in my CA aquarium and my cichlids are always digging in it. What are you thinking as far as a new addition?

    Thanks kate, i will start washing it down tomorrow, i finish school tomorrow so everything will be easier haha.

    I am not quite sure... but i want something big LOL i know, not alot of room, but i was thinking of something like a red devil, but i still have to read up. If not then just a small group of africans :;dk but i want to stay SA LOL

    Maybe a severum... but i need something with a temper as my dominant female con will absolutely kill whatever is new...

    A red devil definitely won't work, lol (they need at least a 5 foot tank). What do you have in there right now?

    Some of the smaller fancy plecos work great with CA cichlids. I have also found rainbowfish to be really good looking dithers. I don't know if I would add any more cichlids to your tank since its only 35 gallons. Maybe a 3rd female con would work... a pink one would be cool :)

    UPDATE: never mind, i started washing out the sand today and i hated the color, it almost looks like plane dirt. So its a nono, besides i think gravel will be easier for me LOL

    I'll just rescape and throw in the little piano deco i've got :)
