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:

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.><((((º> ><((((º> ><((((º> ><((((º>

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!

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.
