10x3x2.5 African Display Tank

Recommended Posts

This tank started out as an all male Malawi Hap tank but after getting over 20 different species of haps in there everything was just too blue so I had to start adding in different coloured mbuna and peacocks to break up the colour. The fish range from 8cm - 32cm so it's still a work in progress but getting there. I think I'm up around 35 odd species and about 5 hybrids.

Not a pro on the camera but enjoy my fish photography and slowly getting better lol.

Cheers mate. Decided to take the Placidochromis Phenochilus Tanzania out of the display recently to breed as my missus loves that fishy so much ready. I recently brought 30 more of them to create a large colony to breed and will put back a few excess males back into the display. I had an awesome Rostratus pic last night but he has a huge poo coming out so I deleted it lol
