Country: United Kingdom
Description: Juwel Trigon 190 Malawi Corner Tank (100 cmwide x 70 cm deep x 60 cm high) - dark oak effect I have taken out the internal filter as I feel it takes up too much room, and replaced it with a TetraTec 1200 external filter, which is more than adequate and keeps the water crystal clear.
Advice: Try not to rush things. External filters make life so much easier. Regular water changes are essential and if you can use a hose rather than buckets, it makes things simpler.
Fish Kept: The fish are all young malawi cichlids, which I am growing on in this tank, with plans to move them to a larger malawi tank that I have - once they are big enough.
Corals/Plants: The decor is a mixture of 'spaghetti rock' and artificial rubber and plastic coral, to make it look like a marine reef tank. Some of this looks surprisingly natural and moves with the flow of the water. Coral sand is used as the substrate, with a twin T5 High-Lite lighting unit (standard).
Tank Size: 42 gallons
