Photo Caption: My current display tank... due for a full upgrade... With this one, I wanted a really striking contrast between the dark background and light rocks / sand. Scale was important too - i wanted the large rocks and moderately sized fish to suggest a much bigger space. Sort of in line with what Takashi Amano does with plants, not that i think my work compares to his!! Hope you like it...!!!

More Info

Country: United Kingdom
Description: Juwel RIO 180 tank. I upgraded the pump to 1000lph and added extra layer of the fine filter pad to keep the water really crystal clear. My cheap camera didn't really capture that though. The lighting is 2 X triton tubes.
Advice: Read. Be patient. Follow the advice you get - but don't listen to everyone on internet forums. Observe your fish - in time you will know in an instant if something is wrong. Use lots of biological filteration, be religious in your water changes. and... ENJOY!
Fish Kept: this tank... I wanted a really light stock, a parrot cichlid, a few assorted malawis donated by a friend. The parrot cichlid keeps everyone else in check... in the pciture he is guarding his cave (at the bottom of the rocks) - anyone goes near there... they get it!
Corals/Plants: No plants! Just sand and tufa rock
Tank Size: 50 gallons
Quote: Your Money or your wife.
About Yourself: Currently plan to get a much bigger tank but decorate it along the same lines... look out for it!
