Awesome tank! Plant look nice I had over 80 Anubias but as they got older the plants just became toys and they chewed them up pretty bad, so I removed all of them.

Any rock work planned? Places for them to hide?

I was thinking of rocks but i dont know if it will take away from the look of the theme. I also only have about 7 inches on each side of the pyramid for it. Ive seen some cichlid rocks for sale. What would you use? I guess i really need that for a cichlid tank huh? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Kinda stuck on what to do there!

To not ruin the theme you could make It look like ruins. That would look spectacular.
