Hi everyone, I decided to post this here because if I posted it in the CA folder, it would go to the CA side... And if I posted it in the SA folder they would say SA! :lol:

I have a 1200 gallon aquarium:

I'm faced with a decision I just cannot make on my own.

Option A is to go with a CA set up consisting of dovii, nicaraguense, nigrofasciatus, spilurus and flaveolus. All of which I currently have.

Or...

Option B is a SA community with oscars, ports, psittacus, chocolate cichlids and astroloheros red ciebal. All of which I also have.

OR... Start completely new with something YOU suggest, what would you do?

The problem is that there are simply too many options at your fingertips as to what to do with your amazing aquarium.

Just go with what you like the most, I suppose. You are not limited with virtually any cichlid(s) with the exception of the largest such as P. dovii and most of the Cichla species?

I had been dead set on doing a dovii biotope, but the experts seem to think it just won't work... I kind of want to do that just prove them wrong! LOL The tank is unique in the fact there's a huge break in line of site with the shape being an "L". I've kept aggressive species in the tank with very little to no aggression...

What about a Congo Biotope? Ctenopoma, Steatocranus, Polypterus, Synodontis, Orthochromis, Gnathonemus etc etc....

Oreochromis Mossambicus "gold" that way you can eat a few each week and supply local restaurants.
The gold form is nice to look at and good to eat.
Otherwise a Moba Frontosa tank with hundreds of Cyprichromis.

Are those Zonatums in the corner at the beginning of the video. That fester is beautiful. How long did it take you to build this tank. I see the Black Belt is flexing his muscle. I always thought Black Belt aggression is under estimated. Everything looks great. Good job.
