 Dear  all,
 
 Finally  i  get  around  to  post  some  of  the  inmates  of  my  75  G  Cichild  tank.  
 
 The  Picture  of  my  tank.  This  tank  has  only  the  sides  closed.  I  have  both  the  leanths  open  for  view.  Thats  why  I  dont  have  any  backgrond  pics  and  the  decor  is  more  or  less  concentrated  in  the  corners...
 
 This  is  my  Tank  frm  3  feet  distance  ;-)
 
 
 
 A  more  closeup  view  of  the  tank.  Focus  is  on  the  attempted  caves  out  of  hand  broken  slate.
 
 
 
 This  is  my  favorite  pair  of  Dollars(corrected).  Had  then  for  over  a  year  now.  Got  them  when  they  were  about  2  inches.  Now  they  are  more  than  5".
 
 
 
 a  more  closeup  view..  
 
 
 
 This  a  snap  of  my  pair  of  Blue  Dolpnins,  I  guess  these  are  two  females,  but  since  they  juveniles,  I  am  waiting  for  them  to  grow.
 
 
 
 I  know  a  few  dont  like  these,  but  he  story  of  how  I  found  these  Parrots  is  in  my  introduction.  Here  is  the  snaps.
 
 
 
 This  is  my  lone  Chromide(i  think)....  Its  fav  hobby  is  to  dig  out  the  substrate  from  under  the  caves  and  build  underground  tunnels.  He  is  the  boss.
 
 
 
 it  doing  what  it  does  best...  digging  the  soil  out..  
 
 
 
 My  pair  of  juvenile  Green  Terror..
 
 
 
 the  5  bars  in  the  forefront..  
 
 
 
 I  think  this  is  the  Pseudo.  Elongatus...  please  id  if  otherwise...
 
 
 
 This  is  the  tail  of  my  4"  Blck  GHost  knife  fish.  It  is  really  reclusive.  But  it  loves  the  cave.  It  comes  out  once  in  a  while  during  the  day  .  But  it  knows  that  i  will  drop  food  in  the  front  corner  every  night  just  after  switching  the  lights.  I  am  working  on  a  moon  light  system  for  this  guy.
 
 
 
 THe  Red  parrot,  the  Texas(  in  the  bottom  left  cave)  and  the  chromide  in  their  chosen  caves.  They  came  to  tems  only  after  mega  battles.  The  longest  I  have  seen  lasted  4.5  hours...
 
 
 
 Comments  Welcome...!!
 
 Regards,
 Pritam

 Dear  Pritam
 Like  your  earlier  posted  photos.  This  time  it  is  superb.  One  more  point,  the  Silver  Dollar’s  are  fine  fin  nipper,  So  be  aware.
 Regards
 Kaushik

 good  setup.just  my  opinion  remove  african  cichlids  from  your  tank  as  well  as  those  widows  tetra  too.as  they  are  not  compatible  with  south  american  cichlids.

 Ouch...if  that  indeed  is  what  the  LFS  said,  I  have  just  seen  the  worst  an  LFS  can  do  to  a  hobbyist  !

 I  stand  corrected,  before  the  smart  alecs  take  over....  
 
 @Rohan  :  Thanks  for  the  correction....
 @Pree  :  yup....i  agree...  though  I  do  have  some  qualms  with  my  LFS,  but  if  any  one  sells  an  SD  for  a  Discuss,..  then  the  LFSshould  not  be  in  business  and  the  Hobbyist  should  not  be  in  the  hobby...
 @T2CHATTO  :  no  i  wont..  ;-)
 
 Thanks  for  the  comments...

 Pritam.....
 your  tank  looks  good.......but  it  seems  to  be  a  mixture  of  American  and  African  cichlids  along  with  tetrs  and  BG  fish.....I  doubt  the  compatibility  because  once  the  parrots  grow  bigger  they  will  enter  into  a  battle  with   the  dollars  along  with  the  dolphin  pairs.......wishing  u  good  luck  on  the  compatibility.............
