Newbie!

My name's AJ and I am big into my African Cichlids! I currently have 8 Mbunas in my 20gl long aquarium but I am working on my 75gallon show tank for my living room. When I say working on it, I mean that I'm about half-way done with my DIY 3D background. I'm also in the process of selecting a canister filter or combo that is going to keep my water crystal clear. I over filter my current tank and the water stays beautiful with regular water changes.

As far as my fish go, I have one male red zebra who pretty much runs the tank, one male rusty, 3 female blue zebras (possibly cobalts?), 2 Aurautus (both have juvenile coloration but I'm almost positive one is a male because he's getting a little darker blueish color to him), one female kennyi, and one smaller brownish colored zebra that I'm not sure of.

I plan on getting a large new group of fish once I get my 75 set up, which I'm always up for opinions on!

Looking forward to share experiences and learn from others! See ya around!

Thanks. It was a very aggressive bunch until I bought the 3 blue females. They seem to have calmed everyone down a lot. The auratus are supposed to be super aggressive, but my pair are super cool. They just swim around together playing in the current. I really like peacocks though. I might have to do a separate tank for them lol
