Hi everyone,

I have a 75g african cichlid tank with mostly peacocks and a few haps and a 29g with a few mbunas. Had the 29g up for 9 months and the 75g up for about 5 months. Both have done incredibly well and not had any problems thus far.

I really joined this site to research about saltwater aquariums in hopes to put up a 40g breeder with saltwater to try something different than the cichlids. I'm from the St. Louis area and we have quite a few lfs' and seem to get a lot of conflicting information so I'm hoping some online research points me in the right direction.

From what I have read on here, there seems to be some great information and discussions going on and I'm really excited to start planning a new tank.

Welcome aboard! I just joined last week and can't get over the amount of info these gold people have. I am learning something every day. Their iPad app rocks, and I hear their Android app does too.

I spent a few months in St Louis consulting at a hospital there (St. Anthony's). The arch was amazing and I liked your zoo too.

Good luck!

Welcome aboard, Melissa. Nice tank! I am waiting to buy and establish my first tank in ten years and learning a good deal in the process on these forums. I am sure you'll learn a great deal too.

Thanks everyone! I had so much success with the cichlids, they were breeding within 3 weeks of the tank being set up. We kept the first round of babies to see how they look, I'm fairly sure they're hybrids. A few are starting to show very slight color I'm pretty excited to see them keep growing.
