This is my first Malawi Tank so any advice would be appreciated on how to improve the conditions for the fish and stocking. :-)
Description: My Tank is a 260 Litre 120x68x46cm Bow front Rift Lake Cichlid Tank not sure of make, I have 1x white light 1x marine blue light, 2 Tetratec Ex1200 external filters, 1 Tetratec AP300 Airpump with air curtain at back, A rena 300w heater, Substrate is coral sand with mix of White rock,Slate and pebbles and red agate with a scattered amount of fake plant.
Advice: Always Double filtration for cichlids and make sure you really research which ones you get as there are alot of unwritten rules. Do not trust your local Fish shop join a good forum as you will get all the help you need. And lastly be patient!
