I hope you keep a bunch of the fry. They should be easy to sell when you can show off the parents to potential buyers. I always liked aggressive cichlids. I guess it´s hard to have any tank mates with the red devil. When they don´t even accept the algae magnet. How big tank do you think you would need to be able to hold more species of cichlids together with the red devils?

Don't think I'd recommend keeping any other big mean fish with them, but I'm sure it's been done before. I had a convict in there until the fry started swimming, they never really bothered him, but if I reintroduce him later they probably wouldn't tolerate him.
They're more fun as wet pets anyway.

found a few old pics of the stand and stuff


removable front panel, tank will be in a corner with not much room to open doors so made a panel instead, bottom is sealed, if anything spills it should hold it for a while


20year old driftwood






stump split, now I've got 2 big pieces to work with

Top trim is held on by magnetic strips, so I can take it off clean. Also Makes it a lot easier when you don't have to worry about breaking your fingers between the tank and trim when setting the tank.

not much DIY on the overflow, the kit comes everything, even candy Cool
I used the template to hold the water, no plumbers putty. It didn't even get warm.

At least 6, maybe even more
I did 3 practice holes in a scrap 5 gallon first, first hole went perfect, the next 2 cracked the tank Twisted Evil But it gave me a feel on the speed and pressure to use before going to the 120.

Sweet! That tank just looks better and better. Really like the gren you put in there. How long do you think it will take until they start eating there young ones?

Not really sure, I've heard 45-60 days. Guess we'll find out soon.

That's one of the best looking wooded tanks I have seen. I really like the way you arranged the driftwood and the pieces you found. Where did you get all the wood?

Hey Jeff, am I looking at this tank corectly?

I don't see a tank top on the tank.

Not worried about fish jumping out?

How do you manage to keep the tank heated?

Just wondering because I don't believe I've ever seen a tank with fish in it uncovered.

300watt heater, no top
he doesn't jump unless he's after my hand
if I had a glass top, he'd probably knock it off if he saw his reflection
