Thread: 75g Mbuna Tank

    I did take a few pics at the beginning of the moss explosion:





    The moss eventually creeped over to cover nearly the entire tank. The back of the tank was packed with moss.

    Post moss removal:



    And the only pic of a fish that actually turned out:

    "Mini Mbuna" 20g long - 1 M. pulpican, 1 M. joanjohnsonae

    "Electric Blue Acara Tank" 75g - Giant danio, tiger barb, Bristlenose pleco

    That looks nice. The only suggestion I have is it may look better if you were to move the sp. val to the back of the tank online with the am. sword.

    Thanks! The position of the Val bugs me, too, but I can't move it because:

    1) the roots have to be protected or three mbuna will uproot and destroy

    2) the darn buggars chew on my arm during tank maintenance so I only sick my hand in there when absolutely necessary!

    Lol!

    I decided to completely overhaul this tank and make it into an SA/CA tank with a pair of Electric Blue Acaras as the centerpiece. Finding a pair is going to prove problematic because it appears they are difficult to sex. My LFS had three: two small ($29.99) and one large ($84.99). They all appeared to be male. If they ever get in "fry" ($14.99) I may buy a few of those and hopefully end up with a pair.

    Right now I just have a bristlenose and 13 serpae tetra in the tank. I ordered a bunch of plants (honestly I cannot even remember what I ordered.. I went a little nuts) and some manzanita wood.

    How it looks now:

    A couple of the plants and the wood came in. I also have some plastic plants in there at the moment (they will be removed).

    Oh, I forgot the bristlenose pleco in the stock list! I did see him during my search for the Acara so thankfully he's alive and well.
