I think it actually looks pretty good. Are you planning on putting plants in there too?

Thank you Carriwin.

I am not currently looking to put any plants in there and the DIY light I have will not work for them (DIY Led). I do would like to put a nice piece of driftwood in there at some point and maybe a "nice" fake plant but I think the cichlids would tear it apart anyway so we shall see as the build comes along.

Next step is to build the spray bar which I already got the black PVC piping and fitting for. Just need some time to get started.

My apologies, I meant "plants" from the get-go. LOL Sorry about that. My convict fish seems to leave my silk plants alone and didn't rip them up, however the moss ball I put in there (before I joined the forum) was decimated in no time. So if you choose to add a small something here or there, I believe it'll be okay. I think the driftwood would look excellent.

That's good to know. I was just scared that since I am using sand, they would move the sand around and the fake plant would then float or something but it does not hurt to give it a try.

I definitely think the tank looks bare but I have time to had more stuff before I stock the thank.
