My 5ft Cichlid tank

G'day everyone,
Seems like ages since I have been on this site and I thought it is about time that I showed you a pic of my display tank. I will post more pics as soon as I learn how to take a really good picture and do my fish some justice. Any way enjoy

Nice tank! Any chance of some more pics? it would be great to see a few close ups, your tank's that big it's hard to see what you've got swimming around in there!

The large rock is lava rock. It has heaps of little holes and tunnels in it and the fish love it

Including that ocean rock has worked really well with the lava rock, I might have to copy that!

Have you had any problems with you fish ripping your plants apart?

No, I've been really lucky where that is concerned. I have been expecting them to rip the plants out, but so far they have left them alone (touch wood)

Thanks mate. He's a Blue Marron (scientific name- Cherax cainii). They are native to the south western fresh water streams of Western Australia.
