Thanks Jesterspub. My Africans don;t touch the Vallisneria, although the Bristlnose and Pleco have a bit of a go at it. It still seems to do pretty well i my tank. I'm also looking for some Anubia plants to try as I've read some African Cichlid keepers have success with this as well. fish avatar
Nice selection of rock and setup. Do the africans bother the Vallisneria plant? Looking for more options but have the java fern. fish avatar
