African rift lake

I don't care what people have to say about my tank, I'm in love. I have never had a freshwater tank that looked like this and I'm happy with it. Plus about half is all DIY that makes it even more personal just saying had to share

Looks great what's all in there? How hard is that to clean?

Right now all I have is the red zebra, bumble bee, yellow lab... I think I know the bee is a bee the other two not so sure about and an stinkpot musk turtle that cleans up after the three Cichlids and I clean up after him. Lol in the next couple a weeks I'm going to order 10-15 more Cichlids. In all in all they keep it pretty clean

Plus about every other day I run a sump filter and I know for sure its pushing over 1300. All the fish go and hide in the rocks and the turtle gets out. I'm going to add a shut off so I can control some of the output. This part is all DIY
