Description: I have a selection of Malawi Cichlids, Mbuna, Haps, Victoria and BN plecs I have them in a 240L 4ft tank running a fluval fx5 and a fluval 3+ internal. (seriously overfiltered). All my fish are F1s or wild cought which makes them very rare! I have 15kg of sand as substrate, 50 kg of ocean rock, 20 kg of slate. Lighting is T8 marine white & blue. With red / blue night lights LEDs. I have 6 breeding groups of different fish and 2 smaller breeding / growing tanks. Davie

I get all my fish from a guy called JIMBO (google malawiforum and he is on there) All i can say is once you find a good breeder/ supplier you never use anyone else! Cheers for the comments guys:) Davie fish avatar
At first glance (without my glasses on) I thought this was marine tank. What a unique look you have with the shale only, I love it and the fish are visible too! Remember, there is no such thing as too much filtration. You have a real 10 here, I love it!! fish avatar
where do you find your fish? fish avatar
Hiya its part of the clean up crew, its a chinese algae eater normally sold as an algae eater. They are great fish to watch as the just munch all day. However once the get to around 3 inches they become quite aggressive so i had to take them out my communtiy tank and put them in my cichlid tank. They have been in there for around 6 months now and working well with the plecs to keep the algae at bay. Davie fish avatar
