    when i was younger i saw a planted cichlid tank and have wanted one ever since,so after years of finding what would and wouldnt work

    this is a dirt/gravel/rock tank that has been heavily plantedand the pics are from when i first got it up and running
    for all those who say you cant have a planted mbuna tank i say LOOK AT THE PICS!!!!
    yes i know that they are diggers but i have had it up and running for over a year now and my swords are growing out the the top of the tank
    planning and placement of plants and rocks are the key
