I can't wait for the Rusty's to get bigger. I've seen pictures and they look nice but i was at my LFS the other day and saw a larger Rusty and all I can say is WOW! They look amazing when they get larger.

I know, mine are still small too and it's just not the same. They're completely brown. They have funny personalites though so it's ok.

I have ten rusty's and it's funny because they are the kings of each tank they're in, and anyone who says there not aggressive should come to my house to see my two bulls.

The Rusty's are by far the smallest in my tank yet they are always "flaring up", sticking their fins out and looking like "don't mess with me". They are so cool

are those the actinic lights? Almost looks like a saltwater tank!

Updated the layout of my tank, took some rocks out and added a piece of driftwood. Comments/suggestions are welcome!

There are 30 cichlid's in this tank at the moment and I know I will end up removing some rejected fish but my question is how many fish is just too much? I have a large canister filter on the way and I plan on running that (labled 500gph actual is about 300gph) and a smaller penguin biowheel 150. I was initially thinking of having 15-20 in the end but if, say, 25 of them all got along would that be way too many?

Well that's good, with a 55g I would stick with 15-17 fish due aggression and territory issues. Once your able to sex your fish then start thinning the males to provide the proper ratios.

I actually got them from a family in Wisconsin, they had blasted through a bunch of limestone to make their driveway. I've been thinking of making a DIY 3D background but I really like the limestone, I'm really torn!

dollabill you can just go to a lake or river and get some rocks, round river rocks look awesome in cichlid tanks. Just make sure to boil them or clean them with a bleach/water solution to get the bad stuff off them.
