What kind of cichlids are going in here?

also added a pic of my 6 gallon fluval edge for fun!
not to sure either i added my fish from my other tank today im gonna post them in a few mintues gotta a few peacocks with alot of females syno petricola frontosa and some other odd balls thanks for posting man!
Looks nice. What are you stocking it with?
No problem.

If I were planting this tank I would move the red plant either to the left or the right somewhat - its colour makes it an obvious centrepiece so there's no need to put it right in the dead centre. Things look too symmetrical - not much in nature is symmetrical.

I would also place it (or another tall plant) in front of the intake to hide it somewhat.

Lastly, I would add some medium to short plants in the foreground to give the tank a bit of a back-to-front slope. It will increase the feeling of depth (or in this case, width!)

A nice start!

yea thanks for posting this man i gotta figure it out!
They are going to want caves/rocks to hide under... break line-of-sight.

Just my 2¢
Glaneon yea i gotta finish it yet trying to find the right rock i ran tanks for years but then stopped not a fan of slate or holy rock i need something different..definitely need something though
Flat river rock... it's rounded and cheap.
yea i checked it out idk man its nice but im looking for something different to many tanks look identical cause of the rocks i know the natural feel is what people want but my fish always do fine with out it i have very little aggression.. im gonna have to make something to fill the void lol thanks for the tips though i love this site everyones awesome!
You might want to check out Cichlid stones by underwater Galleries . I bought the 15 pack & the fish love em. They're light and easy to move for cleaning. Sorry no pics yet.
While viewing images in photobucket, on the right copy the 'IMG Code' and paste in your reply here, like this:
