Hi all. As some of you know I've had a Orinocco based 50 gallon tank for about a year, but due to the plants, algea trouble and to much maintanence I decided to remake the tank into a Malawi tank (I had that many years ago for over 5 years without trouble) The tank is now empty and has been cleaned. Pictures below I am abit worried if it might look abit weird for the malawi tank, since the background was bought for the South American look, but I guess it can look alright, time will tell anyway. The background have been abit white over the year, so that might actually be ok. It took alot of time getting the fish out, but removing the plants, draining the water was easy enough (a far from a few roots that had tried to go under the background) the nightmare was getting all the gravel out, but in the end I managed to. If anyone else is scared about redoing their tank, I can tell that its easy enough if you set off the day to take care of it all and have paitience. As for the new build. I've been asking alot around here on the forum and thats because opinions, exprience and knowledge is vital before you start up and thats even if you have expirience yourself (I had malawi's many years ago for many years, but still want advice). So far the only thing I am certain of is that I want Saulosi in the tank, there are many possibilities even with a 50 gallon. So current plan. Substrate - Sand Rocks - Undecided, but I think I might get Kenya Rocks(looks similar to texas holey rocks). Fish - Saulosi 2m-5/6fm Fish I might add (only 1 more species if I choose not to run with all Saulosi) Afra cobue (might be to big/agressive?) Polit (heard its to agreesive?) Perlmutt (I am actually pretty hook on this one) Afra jalo reef (Suggest from a forum user) - Maybe I want to add some synodontis as well So do you have any suggestions for the setup? I would love to hear exprience from people that have had Saulosi and what they have combined them with and what rocks are best suited? I've heard lavastone is a no go and don't know the prices of other rocks/or where to get them in nature, this is one of the main reasons for the kenya rocks, they are fairly cheap.
