150 planted ---> 150 Cichlid

Jumped at the thought of planted tank with dw when I got my hands on this tank but ended up deciding I'd rather have my cichlids in it.
This is my transformation.
Cichlids were in my 55g prior to switch.

55g


150g before

Could never get the look I wanted with plants. The plants I liked never really did much with co2, HO's and ferts.


150g after

Rocks always work for me, very happy! Now more cichlids!!

Thanks Border. I still have all the plants and I'm putting them all into the 55. Having a sump on the 150 didn't exactly help so I'm hoping the closed system on the 55 makes it all better. I won't have my fav piece of dw but I do have another nice piece.

Thanks man, rocks have always been my favorite. I'll sit there for hours and figure out what I want.
