    Default 125 Gallon Mixed African Tank - a whole lot of fish added!

    All right sports fans, game on!

    My attempt to sell the tank have failed so instead of staring at this huge tank empty, i'm going to house my friends cichlids for a while. He's looking to switch his tank over to salt water and he's so far been unable to sell all his livestock so we've both decided that my big tank would make a good home for the fish. He's also going to provide me with filters (twin eheim 2028's) and a 200w heater.

    Tonight I picked up some epsom salt, and baking soda as well as some rock that Ryan had lying around so i could fill the tank and get the water chem right. The first bunch of fish move in tomorrow. I will use one currently running filter as well as a second clean one that will allow me to instantly have a fish ready tank.

    It's been a while since i've kept africans so i have to re-learn all my water parameters, but Ryan gave me a pretty simple formula using epsom, baking soda, and marine salt. He had those things breeding like rabbits in his tank so i'm pretty confident that I'll have the same. But I have a lot of reading to do the next couple of nights.

    Here's the first tank shot... more rocks and driftwood to come soon....

    ya it really is going to be similar to yours, but i think i'm going to go a little heavier on the rock. Not sure though yet, because I don't know what rock i will have to play with.

    Neoh is the the one shutting his tank down. He's got a bunch of juvinile tanganyikans that will be going in today.

    Sorry JTANG,

    Didn't mean to make an African cichlid lover out of you. It's an addiction.
