    Looks like a 55gal tank to me. Its looking good! Consider adding some natural texas holy rock or slate to the tank to not only look great but also to make the water more desirable to the fish. Welcome to AC!

    I agree with the others. I nice tank, but add some more rocks for the fish to swim through/around. Texas holey rock is GREAT for african cichlids.
