After changing some water, looks like time to clean the filter. Waiting to get a Flat rate box to ship out a ton of plants that are now annoying me!

That is an awesome fish! Have you had him the entire 14 years?

Never been a fan of the cichlid stones. IMO you should go for some pieces of slate stacked and staggered with a few pieces of manzanite driftwood.

I like the cichlid stones and use them. May I suggest something along the lines of what the above poster suggested. Use some other rocks, slate and driftwood. Hide the cichlid stones but use them as I believe they come in handy.

Here's my tank. I have about 12 cichlid stones. Bet you can't see many

Also you'll notice the front is wide open for free swim and chasing
