If you get a single point light source you can mimic the shimmer effect with all the surface movement you have...it'll look more like a river
Here are couple old videos when I had my old 180g running with a lot of surface movement (over 6000GPH) with a 70W MH light..
Kind of hard to see it with the camera but in person it looked great.

No plans to add a rhom....I think that has been shown many times it wont work. I dont believe this kind of tank has been tried.
Thanks dude....doing that now. 220 pics being backed up...lol.
I thought Wayne had a successful cohab with rhoms awhile back and some others. I dont know if they did it for long or now. I just remember seeing pics of Wayne's setup where he had a rhom some pygos and then some cichlids and other fish. This is from 14-16years ago though I believe.

Pretty much. I have lost 3 fish...if I remember right....to predation. 2 sanchezi and 1 cariba. The other fish I lost were a cariba for no reason I could find and a maculatus whos fins melted during shipping and I found him on the powerhead. I do have an importer I use but he wont ship to illegal states.

Quick update. Nothing has really changed much other then a few weeks ago I found a 6" nattereri at a lfs who had great shape to him....so I decided to pick him up. I added him and he was getting picked on a bit but nothing that seemed out of the ordinary. he found a spot along side some driftwood so I figured he would be fine. Well yesterday I found him flipping around...eyes cloudy...and what looked like ammonia burn on his side. Looked like he had been stuck in shipping water for a long time. I believe it was all stress related as none of the other fish seem to have issues. Put him in a hospital tank but he didnt make it.
I think this tank is finished as far as adding fish. They are pretty territorial...but seem to be doing fine as a group. So I have the 3 geryi, 4 cariba, 2 nattereri, and 2 irritans. If I had added a Serrasalmus I would have expected some kind of issues but I figured another Pygo would just kind of blend in. Nope.
