Cichlid tank REVAMPED

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to give everyone an update. I've had alot of questions and been fortunate enough to have great people help me out so thanks again.

As you can see I installed the Fluval 405 canister and it's running B-E-A-UTIFUL. Lol also have 2 HOB Fluval c4 5 stage filters. Added some plants and I'm waiting on some drift wood I ordered online. Please feel free to speak your mind anything and everything is taken under consideration.

Thank you guys

I think those would work fine. They look like decorative pavers to me.
