    Hello :)

    As some of you know I have been planning on getting some shell dwelling cichlids, about 1 hour ago I released 4 Neolamprologus Brevis into my 15G tank :)
    I took some pics of them but they are still settling down so I will get some more pics later or tomorrow :)
    Enjoy :D

    Sorry about poor quality pics!

    Nice start! Your fish look great.:)

    I'm worried about your stand though... your tank is designed to have the entire perimeter supported by a stand. The stress of the sides hanging off the ends of the stand might cause a crack or leak.

    Its actually a small table and its held this tank for over a year now, however i understand the threat of a crack and would it be best to put a board under the tank?

    I would think so, maybe someone else can tell you for sure.

    Beautiful fish and tank! Congratulations! I agree with putting a board under the tank for stability purposes.

    Awesome fish and your tank looks great! I have wanted to try a tank of shellies for a while now. They seem like a lot of fun. Good luck with them :)
