Thanx, I place all the bottom rocks on the glass then place the sand around them. Then I just stack more on those and test them by applying pressure if they budge I move them until they dont. I never had a rock fall on me.

Pretty impressive, Sounds risky too me. But it sure gives the cichlids a feeling like if they're in their natural environment.
Flawless tank

Thanx again, Looks risky but if done correctly there is nothing to worry about.

My friend you haven't keep mbunas. Mbunas need there rockwork you will never see there real behavior if you don't have rockwork and sand.

Doesnt matter is in there blood to act somehow. You clearly need to more research on mbunas.

Well you want to be as close to nature in the glass box. Just because you kept this fish for long time... Nvm. But I keep this fish and breed them for some side cash so ik wat I'm doing.

All about the money u think if I only do it for the money? If I only cared about the money why will I be upgrading them to an even bigger tank? Making sure there healthy? Feeding the best food there is for them? Making there habitat as natural as posibble? Just because I sell there fry doesn't means I don't care about the fish. I'm one of the few members on here to help out with african cichlid questions.

Dom90 u got see this.
