Just wanted to say hello to everyone.

I've been out of the cichlid game for a while now but getting back in. I've had tanks since I was young but switched over to salt about 8 years ago. Time for another change up so back to Africans it is.

I'm gonna setup a Deep Blue 80(48x24x16) Frag tank on a DIY stand. Filtration will be done with an Eheim Pro Series Canister and possibly a small HOB for running carbon, etc.

I'm not sure on the lighting yet. maybe LED, maybe T5HO, maybe MH.

Gonna go with an Mbuna tank to start despite the fact that 10 years ago when I got into Africans the Placidochromis Electra was the draw. It still is my favorite Malawi fish. I'm sure soon enough i'll have another tank with a breeding group of Electras and Oty. Lithobates.

Glad to be part of the group and look forward to meeting you all.

Awesome to have another salt keeper but also pretty neat to hear you want to go back to cichlids for a bit. I wait to follow you in this process. Welcome and good luck!

Flipper, I love the salt. At this point I'm ready for something super low maintenance. If I was gonna crank the salt back up, which I will, i will go back to full blown SPS reef. I previously had an SPS reef with only two fish a Regal Angel(RIP after 6 years) and a Tomini Tang. the Tomini is the lone survivor from those days. It will be easy to set back up as I have all the of the equipment; Deltec Skimmer, H&S Calcium Reactor and a 250 DE Halide Pendant. I can honestly see myself in the next year or so setting back up with a Deep Blue Edge series tank.

Thanks for the warm welcome and maybe i'll run into some of you at Mark's sometime.

Welcome JayT to CVAS. I am glad to know we have another African Cichlid lover in the group with us. I can't wait to see your tank and DIY stand. I hope it all turns out GREAT!!!
