I picked this tank up about a year and a half ago, second hand, and I absolutely love it. It's a custom size, 8ft long and 24" deep and tall. Awesome footprint for my large cichlids without being a huge tank. I started off with African haps and peacocks in it when I first set it up, but in my usual fashion I got tired of them really quickly - I'm a CA cichlid girl through and through. So 11 months ago I kicked the Africans out and switched it to an American set up, and purchased 6 itty bitty 1.5" baby marbled fenestratus. They have grown like weeds, and I had a pair form - so I cleared out the other four to make room for new species, and kept the pair. They have laid eggs multiple times, but have yet to actually have a spawn that hatched, so I'm hoping less competition in the tank now will help. Unfortunately the ones that were shipped to me are not nearly as marbled as I was expecting/hoping, they're mostly just white...so I'm hoping that I can get some fry from the pair and get some nicer-marked babies from them. There's also two cutteri in there who might be thinking about pairing up as well. My plan is to pick up some pearsei and monte cristos if/when my local supplier gets them back in stock - I'm crossing my fingers, because I REALLY want those cristos!
