I have a decent sized 56 column tank. I have worked with fish throughout high school and my college years. This is my first tank that I started at age 19. I couldn't decide whether to do an African or South American tank. Did a lot if research on both types that would be compatible with each other I came to the conclusion and they have been housed together for 3+ years no issues with aggressive behaviors with each other. Along the way I have only lost 1 parrot fish which I found out was due to water quality buoy can see in these
Photos crushed coral. This helps keep my water hard because where I live I have very soft water which was hurting my ph. Then I lost 1 convict to a fungus but had him for 3 years. He just passed 6 months ago and was sad for me. Enjoy my pics. Please no arguments over my compatibility

I also mix Africans and South Americans as well, along with a few community and a RES turtle. All are happy and healthy, about 6 months ago I lost 2 parrotfish to a Red Devil who has since been re-homed due to aggression, AVOID them, he even started attacking my oscars who were twice his size. My current stocking list (which I'm sure I will catch grief about) 2 Oscars, 2 electric yellow labs, 2 red fin tinfoil barbs, 1 albino zebra, 1 convict, 1 parrotfish, 1 common Pleco, 2 rainbow sharks, 1 RES, 1 Spotted Gar, 1 Kissing Gourami, 5 electric yellow/hybrid fry. 125 gallon tank. All are happy and healthy, no aggression other than small tiffs between the Zebra and Pleco who doesn't pay him any mind.

I really like the colors on your Peacock? And your convict looks awesome, nice and bright contrast between the gray and black.

Awesome! Thanks for your response. Yes, my jacobfreibergi is pretty awesome. I think I got lucky with this purchase. Got him about 2 years ago and was the last new addition before the death of my convict and then new convict. I will never get a devil. Also watch out for the butterkofferois. I bought two as an impulse buy and then did research on them. Not a good pick!

I also hope not to catch grief. People will pick but we know ours are working out.

Yeah my devil was an impulse buy, also my first fish, I have since learned a lot and in the last year have gone from my starter 10gal to 3 tanks, my 125 mixed cichlid, 40gal breeder FOWLR, and 10gal dwarf puffer tank. I have become a real addict. So by column tank you mean a cylinder.

No. It is not cylindrical. This is it here. http://m.petsmart.com/mt/www.petsmar...ductId=3804456 it is an awesome shape and perfect in my living room. I love it as it is my first tank I started at 19. Now 22 and still going through nursing school it is a hobby of mine.

No it's not a cylinder. It's a wide tank I believe. Kinda square-ish but not quite. Right?
