  4. Hi everyone, I have a Tank display tank, mostly Juvies: 4 x Birundi 1 male 3 x Alto Comp, 1 male 1 female 1 too little to tell likely female. 6 x Leleupi no sex yet 6 x Brichardi 3 each I think, paired and happy! 3 x Juli Transcriptus but may have been too small and be swimming around the Frontosa's belly... Anyway, all is going well, except the male Birundi and Female Comp seem to have paired and the Male Comp and a female Birundi have as well... It's a display tank so I won't be rearing any fry, but can they even cross?
  5. hey guys trying to nut out a stock-list for my new 600 lt tank. I need to buy substrate for the tank but need to work my stock-list out first Tangs have intrigued me for the colours, behavior and somewhat resemblance to our Aussie reef fish. A bit about me, i'd say semi experienced fish keeper. Have had Americans, Malawi's, Natives, and a hugely stocked tropical aquariums. Ive got a few hours a week to put into a tank, can operate an API test kit like a champion, I'm no Lance Armstrong but i can cycle a tank (bad Fish-keeper dad joke...) The more i look into Tangs the more i like but the more i get confused. So keeping in mind this is a display only tank. What would your goto species be? budget of up-to 1k on livestock Thanks in Advance Bryan
  6. I am happy with these....... better pictures to follow........
  7. Hi guys, my names Charles and i have been slowly getting into tanganikans. I have set up my 4 foot tank over the past couple weeks; here are the specs. Tank: 4 x 18 x 18 i believe. Filter: external aqua one 1100 Light: Dalbarb, nothing special Substrate: aroganite Rock work: single piece from Tibetan mountains i am looking to set up a community tank with a couple rock dwellers, shellies, open swimmers. Now obviously they have to be a little timid but this is were i can't seem to get a good answer through my own research. I honestly don't know what to get, i have done so much research yet i can't really find what will work. hopefully someone could point me in the right direction to getting the right combination. also any recommendations etc you guys have would be great. Thanks for your time guys.

  10. Hey all quick few pics of my garage setup will put up a few more later thanks for looking
  11. Hi guys, First time keeping tangs. They have been in my tank for a period of one day for the similis, to three days for the callochromis pleurospilus and Tanganicodus irsacae and the nigripinnis. They are settling in well and very active and feeding lots. This is a whole new journey for me venturing into hard water high ph stuff so it is a fun journey and am really liking it already. Should just ditch the bloody planted tanks (kidding) as I am really loving the similis personality. I cannot believe the similis can boss around a callochromis so easily! Any tips on how to take good photos would be appreciated as I am still learning how to use a dslr and am such a rookie behind the camera. I am only using a 550D Canon with the standard 18-55mm lense with a manfrotto tripod I found around the house. Oh and any tips on how to use a editing software as these are straight from camera and are terrible but gives you guys an idea of the fishies and how excited I am to have them. BIG THANKS TO SHON, AND AQUARIUMS ALIVE! Tanganicodus Irsacae Callochromis Pleurospilus The group of four;
  12. Hey guys i have a 3x1.5x2 ft tank which i am planning on changing to africans And im thinking of tangs as ive had malawi before and just looking for something new So if anyone could throw me some names of some tangs that would love a 3ft tank haha so i can google and i might think about selling the stuff thats in there The only fish ill be keeping if i change will be my 2 cuckoo catfish
  13. Hi guys, Some of you who follow my threads would know I keep a South American Dwarf (Apistogramma, corydoras colonies, tetras, pencilfish biotope) biotope tank. I have recently lost a substantial amount of interest in them. The tank just does not excite me like it used to. I used to LOVE watching my apistogrammas flair at another and show off and watch my tetras and pencilfish school in the tightest school weaving through the melaleuca but have faced a problem. I think I am bored with the tank in general. Here is the current tank; Now I have TONNES AND TONNES AND ABSOLUTELY TONNES of melaleuca laying in the garage, so here is the question. Should I rescape the tank to maybe bring a new lease on life, or should I go for tangs. Do a tang biotope. The tank size is 3 foot by 20 inches by 20 inches I believe. I was considering something like this; 2010 AGA Aquascaping Contest The background and rocks are easy to accomplish, its just a matter of preference. I have been soft water, planted tanks for so long this would be a whole new journey for me and part of me is so keen but other part wants to keep soft water. What is everyones opinions? Rescape SA DWARF BIOTOPE or do a TANG BIOTOPE. I was considering stuff like ochrogenys makola or ndole bay, neolamprologus brichardi, Neolamprologus caudopunctatus, neolamprologus similis, neolamprologus leleupi, leptosomas, nigripinnis , julidochromis marlieri, julidochromis transcriptus, or gobies. Ofcourse cannot place all of them in there but gives you an idea of the sort of fish I like and would opt for one of those. I wanna know, how does everyone go with keeping these guys in summer as I know they like cooler waters around the 24 to 28 maximum, I am assuming a chiller is now a must? Thanks, Adam

  21. Hi everyone! I am just about to get into Africans, and want some advice. The tank is a 6x2x2 with a 4 ft sump, 36w UV, and have a couple of internal filters on hand. (otto 1200 and similar) Tank has been discus display for about 2 years, and my previous experiance is with americans and cattys. I want everyone to give me some pros and cons for Tangs/Malawi....... And also what works well with either or what I could mix? Substrate- Cal carb, sand etc Furniture- rocks etc where to find and what looks best? I am not being lasy, I have been researching online but find real life experiance better than web pages! Yours Thankfully Steve
