My 55G Malawi tank (updated)

It's starting to look decent lol
Am quite certain I'm not done, but at least am out of the awkward "starting up" phase ;D

Thank you both

Yeah, I know a lot of people do not like the gravel/sand substrate mix, but I really like it. Am glad I'm not alone

Looks great. I hope the fish don't destroy your plants too quickly.

That's why I only have really fast growing plants, they can eat and eat, and I still have to prune weekly lol
Don't think it would work otherwise tbh

Are those Blue face Agazzi in the first picture? (I did not spell it right)
Am assuming you mean apistogramma agassiziis, no these are mbunas (Malawis) the agas are SA cichlids

The little guys were sold to me as demasonis, but tbh they could possibly be kenyis. They are still looking and acting more like demas, but their tail stripes are a bit confusing

I'm 90% sure that those are Kenyi, Eylisia.


EDIT: Sometimes younger kenyi have stripes on their tails as well. IF they have it when they mature it means they are most likely not 'pure' kenyi but probably a mix of mbuna.

They are definitely Kenyi, because I apparently have 4 girls and a boy, which is pretty cool all by itself lol
But my boy is going yellow, very pretty ;D
