Pretty much I've obtained a 65 gallon tank from my room mate's father who was going to throw it out, he had Cichlids in it but when I started it back up I had freshwater tropical communal fish. Sadly they all perished, one of my catfish whom hid got ich without me knowing, infected the whole tank and I lost the battle.
I have since cleaned the tank again and educated myself further (didn't realize the previous lot had tail rot as well), since my water has a higher PH I decided best to stick with African Cichlids (and a new experience!). Currently the tank is in cycle, I currently have 3 fish and all seems well.
I was hoping to try and grow some plants in it as well, being as I never had live plants anyone have any advise? Especially for an undergravel filter?
Also I'm starting up a 5 gallon betta tank- rescued two betta's from being fried/flushed and were living in those hideous 1/4 gallon divider box.
