YT's Tank

Hmm.. let me say, it's a little bit late, but without a good camera it wasn't easy to get some nice pictures of my tank...
It is running since Oct. 2004 and of course, I still have a little algea problem. Basically it is (will be) an east-african cichlid tank with fishes of lake Malawi.
At the moment there are only 3 adult 'Pseudotropheus elongatus' in it, together with some little 'Danio rerio' (the number of them is constantly decreasing, depending on the appetite or the cichlids )
I will keep you updated with the progress, there are more fishies to come!

Very nice photograph. Rarely do I see such detail in photos of aquariums.

Yes, it looks great. A little algae is a good thing.

Nice! Are those plants anubias? I'm guessing you must have some strong support under it with all those rocks in it.

Cool tank man, but the white wall behind it doesn't look good.

Doc,
I know, Malawian are a little easier to keep so I started with them, but maybe somewhen I will switch to Tangs, I love those Tropheus.

Minn,
If you like pink rocks, go to south-west sweden, they use such rocks as gravel besides sidewalks (I took them with me at a trip last year). Of course it was my new cam.

Pat,
Yes, for the fishies, they like (and eat) it! But I would prefer to get rid of them.

Clint,
Yes, the plants are anubias, those are one of the species which doesn't get ripped by cichlids, at least so far! It's only a 200l (55 gal) tank, so it's not that heavy.

Ix,
Yes, I'm still looking for a nice background picture, maybe I will paint one by myself. Could also be just plain blue, any ideas?

Minnie,
I'd mail you some pink granite, but I fear the postage may not be to your liking...

YT,
I think the background looks ok. The crystal clear water looks even clearer like that.

I once installed a mirror on the back glass, and it looked really good. At two other times I painted the back glass blue and once black.

I do not like those painted backgrounds myself,

YT,
I've never had any trouble with them at all, as far as I'm concerened they are as easy to keep as Mollies or something, and they breed like Mollies too... Give them a try, at least try to find yourself some shell dwellers...

NOTHING breeds like Mollies – Except maybe Guppies, and...um, wait... – oh forget I said anything!

The funny thing is that I've never gotten any of the livebearers I've kept to breed, but the first Brichardi I ever had made more babies than... Uh, better stop there...

I like a plain black or dark blue background. That's what I use for my big tank. For smaller tanks I just keep lots of plants so you can't really see the back anyways.

He said that to me?

I guess I'll comment anyway, both of my tanks just have a plain black background...

Ok, I'll probably give that black a try.

Speaking of breeding... those Malawian cichlids are very productive.
Every 5 weeks the females have their mouth full of eggs, 3 weks later 20 little fishies more...
At first I thought the newbies wouldn't have a chance to survive (that's why I have this little breeding box inside) but fortunately they have also no problems in the tank. If anyone would like to have some of them, no problem.
The 1st pic is from the breeding box, the 2nd inside the big tank.
