 so  the  tank  maintenance  is  only  20  to  30  percentage..  because  my  mom  and  dad  have  work..
 
       Tank  setups  
      
         1.Dwarf  cichlids  with  50  to  60%  of  plants...
 
         2.Morphs  with  similar  size  cichlids  with  40  to  30%  plants..
      
         3.Oscar
 please  tell  me  which  setup  is  good  for  me..  and  tell  me  low  maintenance  plants  too...
 
    Filtration:

 You  cannot  keep  plants  and  Morphs  or  plants  and  Oscars  so  that  is  ruled  out.
 Please  give  the  breadth  and  height  of  the  tank.  3  footer  is  incomplete  info.
 I  will  suggest  you  to  keep  a  medium  sized  pairing  cichlid  with  some  tough  dithering  fishes.  Think  about  various  biotopes.....

 I  did  not  follow  your  20  -  30%  maintenance.  Are  you  saying  you  will  be  changing  20-30%  water  weekly  ?

 Dear  Deepak
 Agree  with  Sriram  that  cichlid  with  plant  in  3  ft  will  not  work  unless  you  go  for  South  American  Dwarf  varieties.  You  can  choose  different  South  American  Biotopes  like  Flowing  River  ,  Black  Water,  Paramaribo.etc  with  compatible  Dwarf  cat  fish  and  Tetras.
 Regards
 Kaushik

 Agree  with  Sriram  &  Kaushik
 
 Firstly  Provide  the  full  Tank  Specifications.  From  what  i  can  make  out  by  your  post  ,  you  want  a  low  maintainance  tank  since  you  will  be  relocating  which  your  parents  can  take  care  off  with  a  20-30%  effort...please  correct  me  here  if  im  wrong.
 
 You  can  keep  a  select  few  cichlids,  and  take  care  not  to  overstock  &  have  a  good  filter  in  place.  Then  a  20  -  30  %  water  change  will  suffice,  with  maybe  a  total  cleanup  once  in  2  months.

 Just  topping  up  the  water  wont  be  enough,  even  if  you  put  a  excellent  canister  filter  in  place  and  less  bio  load  it  is  advisable  to  change  the  water  atleast  once  in  2  weeks.

 36X15X18  is  roughly  around  45  US  Gal
 
 This  is  just  enough  for  1  Oscar  and  nothing  else...
 You  have  to  rule  out  the  option  of  Plants,  because  neither  Morph,  nor  Oscar  would  keep  your  plants  ok...   :-)
 
 Oscar  would  create  a  mess  with  food,  so  topping  up  would  not  work  Bro...
 You  need  to  vaccum...
 
 Go  for  Severum,  Five  band  Cichlids  etc  and  use  Rocks  and  sand  as  gravel..
 Also  use  a  Power  filter  at  the  least  of  specification  more  than  1000  L/H,  that  would  help  you  to  reduce  the  maintenance  load.  buddy

 water  change  50%  in  two  weeks  means  i  will  manage  that...  then  how  much  fish  load  is  good  for  this  condition...

 Fish  Load  will  depend  on  the  Variety,  Once  you  decide  on  that  then  you  can  decide  on  the  number.

 Deepak  
 
 Morph  will  need  hard  water,u  can  use  shells  for  buffering  the  water.
 Try  to  get  1  male  for  3-4  females  other  wise  u  will  see  lot  of  fighting  between  males  and  ending  up  with  dead  fishes.
