Just remodeled my tank to a Central American river biotope with small cichlids.

Setup details

Fish list:

  • 4 Cryptoheros sajica 1M/3F
    3 Herotilapia multispinosa 1M/2F
    1 Xiphophorus helleri hybrid 0M/1F (I will replace it with a small group of Green Swordtail «Xiphophorus helleri green»)
    1 Peckoltia sp. L038 (South American loricaridae)

I hope you like

Thanks and regards :)

Your rainbow cichlids are a pairing fish, not harem breeders. You really should remove your extra female. You could add a male, but I don't think you have room for two breeding pairs, which will take over the entire tank.

also, I'd put in more plants to break the line of sight better. You basically have one side for hiding and one open side. I'd personally create two suitable breeding/living areas on both sides of the tank with some sort of plant or driftwood division in the center of the tank (that's what I've done with my two rainbow tanks.)

good luck

Hi McFly_,

You have a truly amazing tank; well done. Your sajica have great colors.

I like what you have done with the long pieces of driftwood and rocks.

Thank you for sharing.

Thanks,
Matt
