The wood won't affect it. Those filters move so much water it will suck it past anything. And if you have the glass lids, your right you shouldn't have to worry about the open canopy. Sorry I didn't see that you had glass lids.

Go do a water change - the solution to pollution is dilution.

So 2 issues the fish arent eating dory at an algae wafer all she does with the pellets is chew them up and spit them out. The hrp wont go near anything...i guess they still have to settle in

This is the real problem I tested the water tonight and didnt get any nitrates wtf ! Took all the bio out of the ac110 which almost filled up one of the trays in the fx also have a another tray with new bio...why would I have no nitrates ?

If they're not eating at all they'd be producing a minimal amount of ammonia, so there wouldn't be much at all for the bacteria to convert to nitrate. Couple that with a big tank and 2 tiny fish and you wouldn't get much of a reading.

You might need to watch out for losing your cycle though, but when you move Capone over if you transfer some of his bio media as well that should help to prevent any cycling issues.

All good so far Frank, this might be a case where you leave uneaten food in the tank, as Lam stated, your 2 little goobers may not produce enough ammonia for the bb to feed on. Get the gangster in there, he'll chow down, take a leak and a crap, and away you go!

Capone in the tank. Things arent going so good lol... dusty (hrp) did what I was worried about and immediately checked capone out and is flaring and almost looks like he was gonna nip at him. Capone so far isnt paying him any attention but him and dory are already having a stand off capone charged a couple of times but dory hasn't backed down yet...looks like they are competing for the right side of the tank near the mopani dw...oh boy

I think little stand-offs are better than someone running and hiding. Pretty typical of cichlid behavior so far.
