75 gal cichlid tank

just thought I would share some photos I took of my tank. I was in the middle of doing a partial water change so thats why the watter level is low. let me know what you think.

thanks Mike

thats nice man.. I think the smallest big rock I have in mine is 20 pounds. I need a few more big rocks and one real flat rock to finish it out the way I want. I am finding the rocks not buying them so its taking a bit of time.

Thanks, "man" lol (I'm a chick!)

Since I live in Florida and it's flat I really couldn't find any rocks. I've been buying them off ebay. Look up rocks under pets, you'd be amazed what people got for sale. Some will even customize the box for you like the last guy did so I had all those big flat ones.
