Advice: Change water as often as possible and do not overfeed.Be very careful when moving dense,sharp slate or rock as it is so so easy to bump or scratch your beloved glass.When moving slate/rock in and out go very very slow to prevent this.Oh yeah and dont worry about anything and chill!!
Fish Kept: Yet to research and find out more about the Malawis i purchased today.
Corals/Plants: Artificial
Tank Size: 50 gallons
Quote: It's not about the size of the man in the fight but more the size of the fight in the man.
About Yourself: I am a 34 year old singer/songwriter from Central Scotland with a wife and 12 year old son who also adores anything to do with fish and fishing.I enjoy my dogs,a 9 year old black Labrador and a 2 year old Springer spaniel.
