  3. Hi Roos, I just tuned into this thread. I also have an african peacock tank woth aulonocara, placidochromis and protomelas varieties. Theres some quite unique fish on your list. May I ask where you get your fish from? In particular this variant Protomelas virgatus Pombo "Yellow Chin" ?? cheers Dan
  4. Hey guys, i know this is an old thread but was just after some advice on the temperament of tge Naevochromis chrysogaster. Is this a peacful fish? How would a male go in an all male display tank with Aulonocara, Placidochromis and Protomelas varieties? Cheers Dan
  5. Hi folks just showing off my 8ft Lake Malawi African Cichlid tank which stocked predominantly with Aulonocara, Placidochromis and Protomelas varieties totaling 70 odd fish. Filtered by 3 x aquaone 2700 nautilus canisters turning the water over 8 times every hour. 2 x wave makers positioned opposite ends with one near the top to create surface agitation to oxiginate the water and the other down the bottom pushing detritus toward filter intakes. Lighting consists of 2 x 4ft Fluval Marine and Sea 2.0 LED's Feed New Life Spectrum and Dainichi Super FX once daily. Change out 50% water weekly.

  11. Yes ive read same with drift wood but have found that while it may have some impact on softness/hardness of water (cant tell for sure cause i havent measured it) that it has had no bearing on my PH which consistently sits 8 to 8.2 Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  12. That's good to know... awesome tank... thanks for the pictures Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  13. Sensational... yes sounds like that set up is working great for you... do the mbunas dominate the haps and peacocks? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  14. Ok great... sounds like im pretty well covered if thats the case... cheers Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  15. Is that right? Great idea man... ill have to look into that for sure... general consensus seems to be that a majority of people do atleast 50% weekly... im thinking to do same and see how goes... tanks been stable for quite some time now with nitrite and ammonia nil readings but nitrate consistently around 10ppm Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  16. Ok cool that's good then... no i dont currently have any water storage... water change straight from the tap and ad seachem prime... how much water do you change out? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

  20. Hi folks... ive recently established a 550 litre aquarium thats been running for about 4 months... initially it only had a 406 fluval canister filter and an internal 1800 Litre per hour powerhead filter... about 6 weeks ago i added a new aquaone nautalis 2700 UV canister filter to the mix... A week ago I got another aquaone nautalis 2700 canister filter to replace the small fluval... i took all media out of the old fluval inc sponge filters and seeded the new aquaone... So my question is now that I'm running 2 x aquaone nautalis 2700 canister filters + internal 1800 litre per hour powerhead filter what would you suggest the maximum number of cichlids this system can sustain? Cutrently i have 21 fish mostly juvenile haplochromis and peacocks, all display males Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
