Thanks druid.

I have a good layer of polystyrene under the rocks in the tank.

And my basic physics tell me that the rocks are twice as heavy (in the water) as the water for that small volume taking into account specific gravity and buoyancy.

Thanks man. It was a little risky getting them in. The stand the tank is on is pretty high so I had to walk the 20/30kg+ (each) rocks up the ladder over the top of other tanks lol and lower them in. But I knew what "look" I wanted so I had no choice :)

thanks man.

I actually planned this tank a little for once, compared to just throwing in rocks willy nilly.

Played around with rock configurations BEFORE they were in the tank. I was told by the wife I was "cute setting up my rock dioramas". lol.

I think africans (mbuna) in general get a bad wrap for having "no personality" compared to americans. But I think once you give them some adequate space you get to see them in full swing.
