My tank is kind of an oddball, 70 gallon
Had to get the measuring tape out and look again, here is what it measures: 48L 14W 24H......Petsmart in my area had these on sale with lids and lights for a heck of a price. they said there was only 2 in stock, I called, had them hold it for me, and ended up with one of them. I Used the calculator and it says its exactly 69.81g
Back up plan is to set up 55 gallon..Might put a bloody parrot with the cichlid and see how that works...Peace!

Isn't it a 4 foot, 75 gal, Craigfish? If memory serves. . . . :whistle:

We might need the 8-ball on this mock-up.

ETA: I should add that I owned a Jewel cichlid before and it was a very peaceful fish; curious about the aggressive features; never saw it in mine.


Yeah so far Doug shows absolutely zero aggression, but we all know that can change

I've had a Jewel Cichlid in with my new world Cichlids for a couple of years. Haven't had any problems. There are a couple of species sold as jewels so I guess it's hit or miss. I love mine, it looks great!

Yea, thanks. Set up 55g to put him in/ maybe with a blood parrot. Buster is going to have the 70g to himself..Just by adding the Jewel with Buster my Nitrates shot up crazy-like. Busy day, doing wc on Busters now to bring it back down...
