    Pseudotropheus Polit

    I was thinking about Membe Deep, earlier today, the last time I saw them was around 2013/14 - I believe John was successful in breeding them. I never saw them since, I would love a group to breed

    Pseudotropheus Polit

    my friendly advice is keep what you love, all fish go in cycles, whats not "hot" today becomes "hot" tomorrow. Great quality polits shouldn't be that hard to sell, they look amazing.

    Brine shrimp and fronts

    Sounds like you have an excellent variety :D, In my opinion a few days of frozen won't hurt. I have noticed though, that once Frontosa get large, they loose interest in eating every day, so don't freak out if that happens from time to time.

    Brine shrimp and fronts

    Brine is fine, I love the Hikari Brine and Spiralina mix. I feed my frontosa a combination of frozen (Brine included) and dry foods and brine shrimp is fine to feed. Currently my favorite is the Hikari Jumbo Mysis.

    Fronts kigoma

    Bradc - @brucem has some of the nicest kigoma around and spare males for sale. Disclaimer, they were mine and I raised them for 4 years from 5cm to 28cm, still very nice specimens Don't expect anywhere near the blues you find on Zaire Frontosa - Kigoma do have some signs of blue though with a lovely golden yellow on the fins. I posted a video of more than likely what to expect, they are a pleasure to breed and raise.

    L2H is right. Depending on their size, I would put them in a 5x2x2 or larger.

    Air pump - to have or not to have

    You are able to agitate the surface with the return of your canister filter. I personally use them and add sponge filters - extra oxygen and filtration :D. With African Cichlid, people tend to overstock/increase numbers in order to limit aggression on one specific fish. more fish results into extra waste and less oxygen so it won't hurt to have an air stone or two. brand is of personal choice - something like a twist outlet 200LPH or higher could be used. I also use airpumps to connect my air driven breeder boxes which house fry and circulates water from the main tank into the breeder box.

    Aqua One ThermoSafe Heater 300W / use 1 or 2 heaters

    I use a cheap stick on glass thermometer (similar to below) - I put it on the opposite side of the tank where heater is placed. https://www.thetechden.com.au/Pet_Worx_Glass_Thermometer_p/ak01.htm They are digital alternatives which also are priced reasonably well. Other Alternatives https://www.thetechden.com.au/searchresults.asp?Search=thermometer Your local LFS should most likely have these, I have only used thetechden as a reference.

    Aqua One ThermoSafe Heater 300W / use 1 or 2 heaters

    Hi There, I tend to prefer the Eheim, it may cost you a few dollars extra however they heat a larger volume of water using less Watts. based on what I can see here the Jager 150W heats 200-300L & 200w heats 300-400L - https://www.thetechden.com.au/JAGER_HEATER_200w_p/jg3617.htm Just ensure, the heater fits in the aquarium.

    Sump Recommendations for 5x2x2 Malawian Set up

    Kathy has covered most of it. The only recommedation I have is purchase media bags, it will make your life a lot easier when you want/need to clean the sump. I saw these BioPure Balls which may be of interest to you. http://www.aquaholicsonline.com.au/biopro-biopure-aqua-bacteria-house-bio-bakki-balls-5l.html From the link:- " Biopro Piopure Balls are so effective that a single Ball is equivalent to several kilo's of ceramic noodles (more than 10x its weight) or 1000's of bioballs "
