Things are coming along. Got the rest of stand/hood built and finished. Added some plants. Still waiting for nitrogen cycle to finish. Estimating about another week. Now I just need to decide on which fish. Hap+peacocks? Other types? All male vs mix? Overall quantity? What would be the most fun with kids?

Tanks looks great! How old are your kids? When mine were 5-7 they were more interested than they are now at 9 - 11. But I guess that's what happens when you have an Xbox. If your kids are on the younger side I would say go with mbuna because they are constantly moving. Maybe a couple more peaceful species like Yellow Labs and Acei. Add some Synodontis Petricola cats and a pair of bristle nose plecos once you get some algae growth. You'll have a nice community and the kids will enjoy watching the Labs produce offspring. Good luck!
