    Great looking setup! That's the big daddy of the glass bow fronts. What model Sunsun cansiter? Can you get some established media or substrate for cycling?

    Nice looking tank!!

    I suggest waiting to fully cycle the tank before buying any fish as it avoids problems down the line.

    What cichlids are you considering stocking in this tank?

    The tank stocking has begun. I was able to get used media and a used sponge filter. I currently have a Sunsun 302 canister on it .Should I add another sunsun 304b or a penguin 350 HOB?

    If you want to supplement with a hang-on-back, I'd go with an AquaClear 110. If you want another canister, I'd add the 304B like you said. The nice thing about adding a high flow HOB like the AC110 is, it will take a lot of the mechanical filtration load off your harder to clean canisters.

    My last aqua clear 110 was very noisy so I haven't used them since.

    Interesting mix of fish!

    Did you choose singles only or multiples of a species?
