Advice: be carefull with sand... i had to cut the tube so that the main strainer touches the midwater skimmer, then i made the skimmer itself higher by cutting the bent intake tube... also, don't let the sponge for the powerhead be close to the sand... i had to raise it with an elbow...
Fish Kept: healthy young colony of Labidochromis caeruleus, a new colony of Labidochromis sp. "Hongi", a couple of OB peacocks for color, and 6 killing fish that are growing out...
Corals/Plants: a thick layer of green and purple algae that the mbuna LOVE to eat... i only get purple algae in this tank... maybe for the high PH... coraline algae maybe...???
Tank Size: 60 gallons
