Not new to aquariums but new to African cichlids. Currently running 72 bow front with dual fluval 306 and a Walmart hob to put my heater in. At full strength I'm filtering 900 gph. I have undergravel filter as well primarily as aeration. Tank temp is 74-76ish. Pea gravel and assorted rocks forming wall down the center of the tank. Tank has been running 6 weeks and has been stocked with 9 assorted cichlids and a small pleco. I have been testing every few days and nitrites are still a lil bit high and doing about a third water change weekly. Feeding twice daily. Flakes in the morning, pellets in the evening and bloodworms evenings once a week. I guess my only question is am I forgetting anything? Have enjoyed the process so far. My last tank 8 years ago was 125 stocked with oscars. Just trying to make sure things are good and fish are happy. Thanks in advance.
