Mainly African Cichlid Aquarium. Supported by two 36'' Aquarium Masters LED's as well as Fluval canister filter models; 306, 405, and 2 FX5's. Over 50 Species of Fish in this 135 gallon aquarium. I added a few more rocks since my last video to give the fish a couple more places to hide.
Here is a link to my known species list. (Still trying to figure a couple out!)

Prized for their color, African cichlids make stunning aquarium pets.
My 4ft Lake Malawi African Cichlid Aquarium:
There are over 100 species of African cichlids, which belong to the Cichlidae family. These freshwater fish are inhabitants of African lakes such as Lake Malawi, Lake Tanganyika, and Lake Victoria. African cichlids are the most colorful freshwater aquarium species and are easy to maintain and cultivate in freshwater aquariums.These values are approximate ranges. In nature, the pH levels will vary somewhat as the levels of the lakes will rise and fall through the years, making them either less salty or more salty. In the aquarium, African cichlids can adapt to wide ranges of pH. What you need to be mindful of is to not make any rapid adjustments to the pH level. Such a careless or unknowing act will severely shock your fish, suppressing their immune system, making them more susceptible to disease. Keeping in mind all that I have said, I recommend keeping African Cichlids at a stable pH of 8.2 - 8.4. Fish from all three appreciate pH levels within this range. Cichlids from West African or the rivers and streams of East African require water that is more neutral - pH 7.0.
