Knowledge NEEDED!


New member
Whats up my peoples, I'm Thomas. Currently being I was just able to get back into the Cichlid Life, I only have 2 in a 55gal. Now I'm building a 255gal Malawi River theme tank, YAAAY! ME LOL. Anywho of course this'll be my first tank and since I'm dedicating to my fav freshwater homes, I want the best of everything. Now I work for a glass company so the actual tank itself is going to be basically free, the knowledge I need I whats the best filtration, bedding, im thinking about making my own rock and caves inserts is that a good option? I've been studying, I wanna build them the beat damn efficient artificial lake I can and have the knowledge to care for them. Now as I stated before I have 2 as of right now and have had others in the past so I'm not completely oblivious, I know some and learn more everyday but getting info off the web it all can contradict you guys have the wisdom, please share your knowledge

You would probably want to go with a good sump system for filtration. Or 2 Fluval FX6 canister filters would do a good job. What type of fish are you planning on stocking the tank with?
