Hi all,

My name is Linda and I'm new! I'm working on starting a 50gal cichlid tank.
In the past I've had all the other fresh water fish, guppies/mollies/platys/tetras/barbs/etc.

So this is my first time having (hopefully have :flowers:) cichlids! As soon as I successfully cycle my tank! Which is proving to be a little difficult so that is why I'm here to hopefully get some guidance!

Attached is a picture of my tank!
