algae has really taken off...left lights on for about 4 days straight to get it to really start. lots of brown, but there is some green too. my green severum really likes it.my 20 gallon is in the process of getting done. you can find it in the DIY forum.
hopefully the algae will cover the rest of the back ground in a week or 2. is there any way to get rid of the brown algae and keep the green?

would a pair of white or black calvus fit in this tank? (10 gal)

as soon as i get my 20 gal done, i will be putting my jack dempsey and my severum in there...they are just in the 10 gal for "storage" had to take them out of my 35 gal hex when i turned it into a nano reef salt tank. had a bunch more cichlids, had to sell them all. but my dempsey is my favorite, had him from the beginning of my fish experience, about 4 months now, and he was only about 1" long. now he's about 4" hope fully he'll get a lot bigger

i started out with just a 20 gal long that was given to me with about 12 large convicts and sludge water. sold them off, got a nicer filter(aquaclear 300) and went and got "jack" now i'm upto a 35 gal hex salt, 37 gal cichlid, 20 gal cichlid, 10 gal cichlid and soon a 70 gal salt.
guess i got the "bug"

I love it when people get creative with their tanks and really turn them into a nice focal point.
