Hello, Interested in setting up a tank for African Cichlids


I have a 50 gallon tank. I would love to set this tank up for African Cichlids. I have crushed coral as the gravel in the tank. The fish store I frequent suggested I use the crushed coral instead of fishtank gravel to keep the PH balance where it should be for those type of fish.

I'm still trying to sink a piece of driftwood, but after reading others suggestions, I might just tie something to the ends of it to make it sink.

This looks like a great site. I'm glad I found it!
