I have a 90 gal
Malawi cichlid tank. Sand substrate. It completed cycling in March and has been up and running with no problems since.
There isn't a ton of rocks in it but enought that the labs are mostly happy. I just ordered some cichhid stones that I'll be stacking on the opposite end from the rocks. This will hopefully chill the attitude of the apparent alpha male a bit. haha
It it stocked with all juvies so sex id is still pretty much up in the air...lol

Im running a 30 gal
sump underneath as the primary filtration and also have a powerhead with quick filter that I turn on when I need it. I built a small refugium into the sump which right now only has some crushed coral in it.
I'll post pics soon as I figure out how
