are you planning to stock more? or will those fish grow out?
sorry not 100% familiar with cichlid set ups like this.
but those boulders/stones (I do not know at which point a rock becomes a boulder) are very neat looking and unique.
Lots of room to scape some cool things. looking forward to this progression.

Great looking tank and fish. I love Family FeudWhen I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

I plan to add 4 more because they will grow out reaching on average 6-8 inches each, there is 16 in there right now. I said boulders because ive always called big rocks that you cant throw with one hand boulders lol. I plan on adding smaller stones but not alot because i like them to have as much swim room as possible but at the same time giving the tank some kind of scape.110g All Male Peacock/Hap Tank

Glad to see things are now working out for you.
I'm looking forward to seeing pics as your tank continues to developIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

Awesome tank!! Very clean look. If you do not want to but to many rocks, how about hidding some teracotta pots behind the ones you already have to provide caves for the fish.Roll the Dice!
