Corals/Plants: all real plants: java fern, hornwort, anacharis. i don't have to plant in substrate with these plants so they work with my cichlids. hornwort grows really fast so my tank's look is always changing. cut here, plant there. i like to plant them in the small holes on the lace rock. about 30 lbs of lace rock. 1 piece of mopani wood.

hi dont take me wrong but if u ar new fish keeper perhaps would be better to read propel books before u stock ur fish tank with mix not match different species ! if u cichlids u keep only cichlids , u dont mix with any other groups tanganikan cichlids as they come from different part of the river and environment is also not the same . good luck with new experience but i would advice to restock ur tank just for a caution to avoid necessary death fish avatar ania
