In addition to my 450+ gallon pond and my whiskey barrel water garden I also have a 60 gallon tank with an Electric Blue Acara Cichlid, two German Blue Ram Cichlids, a Clown Loach, and two Otocinclus. I recently added a couple bunches of Amazon Sword plants and I’m hoping they’ll do well with the cichlids. I have plans to add a group of Columbian Redfin Tetras but I have yet to find any in my local fish stores.

@bettasngoldfish I already had the artificial drift wood so I went with that look. It's a South American cichlid tank after all. If it was an African cichlid tank I would probably have a lot more hiding places or rock caves for them to reduce aggression but they seem to get along pretty well so far.

Are you liking the 60 size wise? I’m starting to look at tanks for Sparky my electric blue Jack Dempsey. If he remains solo I was thinking in that range. He does have 4 cories he is growing up with that comes with the package. Sparky is a pig when he eats. Not even a year and he’s packing it on. I am thinking no more roomies for him. But I like that 60.

Yea, I really like the 60 gallon. The 55 gallon tank I had was a little easier to clean because it was 18 inches high instead of 24. However, I like the added height to the 60 gallon tank because it gives more frontal viewing and vertical swimming space for the fish.

It’s really becoming a space issue for me. I could squeeze in something bigger but it’s getting to the point of needing a fish room and that would be the garage some day. A taller 60 fits the bill nicely and I think should be ok for 1 JD and 4 cories. No smaller though. Mind is made up.
