hi all .... that 55gallon tank is cycled ( fishless of course) and all is good ....

what shall i stock ?? went to my LFS to view his tanks and he had a mixed show tank....... he is suggested a mix of small end Peacocks and Mbuna in the correct ration to give the tank a good overall appreance.

i know malawi Bloat may be an issue but apprat from that any other stuff ??

if you have a suggestion on stock list please post it for me as i have looked at virtually every fish and im totally confused at the mo ....

any advice will be appreciated ...... thanks .. G

mbuna and haps #10
hi all ...... addiction is here !!! got a 2nd tank this to duplicate my rooms alcoves lol

going down the malawi route so here goes

water @ 8.00 ph consistent
gh @ 16.8
kh @ 7.2

tank size 100cm length x 40cm wide x 60 tall (250 lite)
substrate playsand and looking at limestone or slate for lots of hides and caves.

looking for mbuna for bottom dwellers of may be around 10 and been told Haps for top of tank ...may be 5/6 mediums

or alternatley if i stock the rocks etc higher will the mbuna take the space and so take more mbuna ???

hope this make sense ............Geoff
