Hello,

 

First time poster. I was wondering what people think of my 2 x 2 x 4ft tank.

About 20 Malawi adults, a few fry, couple of bottom dwellers.

Any advice on improvement would be appreciated.

Photos taken when they hav just been fed, I've got about 4 Purigen bags and pillow stuffing in the sump.

Hi, I'm new here too.

Your tank is really tidy! Super crisp look with that white rock, nice.

Welcome to ACE Kieran.

It's a nice looking tank with a nice assortment of fish.

My only suggestion for improving the tank would be to add a background.  I think a solid blue or black background would make the fish and the aquascape pop and hide the cords.

Tank looks nice and clean, I like the rock setup, my only suggestion would be to keep an eye on the Duboisi as it gets older it may get aggressive as they are normally a colony fish ;)

Welcome, Keiran.

Very neat looking setup there! I agree with Skippy, and I think it would look nice with a black background to match the cabinet and also as a nice contrast to the white scape.

Thanks all greatly appreciated. I'll add the pitch black background and see what thoughts are. Also, thanks for the tropheus advice. I've heard they are hard to keep, no issues so far but he's starting to change colour from a juvie. Wish I had a few more varied tropheus and less motley crew peakocks.

 

Cheers

Apologies LisaFahey,

 

You were talking about the Duboisi, not the Tropheus. 

I'll try keep an eye on him, although, he seems really timid with the other bigger males.

Anyone have any suggestions where I can get a black background?

 

Best,

Kieran
