newest 125 setup

Eventually plan on eliminating 50% of the rock work n replaacing it with driftwood n live plants like the ones on the left, just added them last night and the fish LOVE hiding and swimming thru them.

Very nice!!!! Where's the best place to get driftwood? Is it purchased? Or acquired? And is there any special cleaning that needs to be done to it?

Just added the bamboo yesterday from the same place I get all my fish n driftwood. I have a small independent fish store that only deals with African cichlids its a real gem to have nearby, driftwood is tank ready he has most of it shipped straight from the amazon

The tank looks great! but I must warn you. Bamboo is not a truly aquatic plant. The stems do fine submerged but the leaves will most certainly die off and can cause the potential for algae. If there is a way to raise the leaves out of the water, I would suggest that.

That female is realllly nice! Can't imagine what the males look like. Yeah the reason why I asked is because I can't find them on google. I must be typing it in wrong. But I spelled it like u did

Not a problem! Great looking plants, a shame they sell them as aquatic plants
