90g CA Cichlid tank journal


Recommended Posts

I wanted to set up a short journal for my 90g tank set up. It’s not a Biotope but will mostly focus on CA cichlids, with a couple odd balls thrown in. I’ve traded in a few fish since my last post and lost one to a “decoy accident”. The current stocking is 2 Nicaraguan Cichlids, a Flier Cichlid, and a Sengal Bichir. The next fish I get will be a HRP, 1-3 Firemouths, 1-2 Topaz Cichlid (if I can find them) and some plecos. 

I am not sure how I feel about the driftwood right now so please give me some opinions. I also will get more anubius eventually.

Once you get the anubias everything will fill in nicely. The wood IMO looks natural so if it were me, I'd leave it. Keep in mind, once plecos go in you'll barely see them in there, but they will enjoy bring able to hide. In terms of the Honduran Red Points, are you going with a solo male or a pair? I used to love the colony of them I had of them, but they were so prolific!

I’m thinking just 1 at the moment

Looks like they are all in reasonable if not excellent condition and no major damage. You’ve provided them with a ton of sight breaks and hiding spots. Hope it continues to go well! 

Yes, everyone gets together well, I am a little concerned about the Bichir and Firemouth. The Bichir has grown at a much faster rate than expected and the Firemouth is right on the edge of being small enough to be food

My last scape I showed lasted a whole four days, this is the new change, which I am planning on making some small changes to soon.

And in other news I got lucky and found a dream fish of mine, A. Myrnae. My LFS had one that someone brought in, hopefully he colors up once he gets settled in.
