We included a variety of tank decorations that would fit each fish the best. The Kenyi African Cichlid needed driftwood . We got tall driftwood! For the Angel Fish and the Spotted African Leaf Fish, we brought a jungle pod-medium.They needed   some plants.These  decorations were specific for each fish. However, to make our tank  a little bit royal; we brought  a castle bridge!
