Tank: 60 gallon acrylic

Filtration: 306 fluval

lighting: deep blue 24 inch

substrate: Florida crushed coral

stocking: still cycling but planning on african cichlids

Hey all, this is my new project it was previously a reef tank, but im turning it into a african cichlid tank

This is while i was cleaning it and getting all the sand out:


This is the tank after I put it back on the stand added crushed coral and all the slate rocks:

Now all I need to do is wait for it to cycle and then add the africans. Then put on the lights and canopy!

Any suggestions on what I should add?
