75 gal cichlid tank

just thought I would share some photos I took of my tank. I was in the middle of doing a partial water change so thats why the watter level is low. let me know what you think.

thanks Mike

thats nice man.. I think the smallest big rock I have in mine is 20 pounds. I need a few more big rocks and one real flat rock to finish it out the way I want. I am finding the rocks not buying them so its taking a bit of time.

Thanks, "man" lol (I'm a chick!)

Since I live in Florida and it's flat I really couldn't find any rocks. I've been buying them off ebay. Look up rocks under pets, you'd be amazed what people got for sale. Some will even customize the box for you like the last guy did so I had all those big flat ones.

that is a beautiful tank.i'm learning on a 20 gal. fw community tank with a couple angelfish and raphaels, but i think i'm catching cichlid fever or whatever it's called. the mbunas are beautiful fish and their faces are awesome. my two juvie angels chase each other and play in the flow. they're fun to watch, but i would love to have a real cichlid tank(like the magnificent one you have) someday. thanks for the pics and nicely done.

Nice! Your tank looks very similar to mine actually. I have similar rocks, and the exact same background. Can't wait for mine to finish cycling now lol

So I'm working on adding rocks to my mbuna tank- it's a 75 gal with sand bottom. Anyhow, eat fish species do you have in your tanks??

I'm curious on getting some ideas as to what fish I wanna get- I'm looking to do an mbuna community tank...
