    Bristlenose plecos are the best bet for eatingalgae/keeping the glass clean in an mbuna tank. Just make sure there's sufficient cover for the pleco to escape overactive cichlids.

    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.

    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.

    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.
