    Patience, and let them grow out normally. If you want something to breed faster get some Ancistrus. They typically mature about 8 months after hatching.

    If they're slow-moving on substrate or objects, they're baby snails. If they're free-swimming, they're daphnia. Harmless either way, though snails can become a nuisance.

    Any of the brichardi complex species will overcrowd the tank relatively quickly. They're very socially territorial, and the colony will just keep expanding as the older fry protect the new, smaller...

    You could do a tank full of yellow lab's and demasoni in a 50. More colorful and active for a show tank than tropheus anyway.

    Tank is simply too small for a colony. Tropheus really need to be kept in large numbers, or as a single fish. Aside from the adults there will be fry growing out too.

    Aside from the debris it won't do any harm. Add a clown pleco (Panaque) and it will happily eat the soft wood. Will still make a mess pooping it out, but the wood will be well used, lol.

    What filter are you using? I run 3 aquaclear 110's on my 220, ran 2 on the 125, never had cloudy water. I only ever use 2 sponges in each filter for bio and mechanical filtration.

    I used 2 aquaclear 110's, with the intakes drawing through the lift tubes of UG filter plates for my cichlid tanks. Just use 2 sponges in each filter to collect debris.

    Simply add filter media or substrate from an established setup to seed the new tank with the necessary bacteria, and provide a source of ammonia to feed them.

    That's normal for auratus, males change color when they reach maturity. They're highly territorial fish, and typically claim the whole tank as their own space. (Don't play well with others.)
