    Here are some pics of our new 55g African cichlid tank set up about 3 weeks ago.

    Initially added 15 juvie male Mbuna + 1 syndontis ultipunctatus cuckoo catfish.

    2 days ago we added 2x dwarf petricola syndontis and 3 peacocks that just came out of QT.

    A few more rock layers and wow! You could use super glue gel to fix a few java ferns on top and maybe a dwarf Lilly’s or 2! So jealous!

    Here are some $8 "Assorted Peacocks" from PetSmart added to the 55g the other day, that did their time in a QT on our back shaded deck....


    Possibly a "Strawberry" or "dragon blood", or other hybrid peacock ?

    Love the Green Mbweca....
    I picked up one for my mbuna tank a few months ago.

    Your stock looks great. Good luck with them.
