Just did mine to a 150 from 75.
I used Carabe Argonite sand, which keeps ph at 8.0 to 8.2 which they like. I did paint the back black. Cichlid like to move sand around, dig holes, if you intend to use rocks in the aquarium i would put plastic material on bottom glass, if they dig under rocks and tumble the pile, no damage to glass. Hope this helps...Click image for larger version
