Your Metriaclima Msobo is stunning, how is their temperament, even the females are attractive with being yellow!

How did you decide on placement of rocks?

How did you decide on placement of rocks? I have OCD and I could not make that natural look no matter how hard I tried...my mind just goes back to even spacing and straight lines.

They aren't pushovers but I wouldn't say they are super aggressive either. They are in a 180 so it is really hard to say. They may be more unpredictable in a 55/75.

When I originally set it up, I was much more methodical about placement.. Now that I have had to remove & add back several times to catch fish, I am not nearly as concerned about it.

My advice is if you want them to look random, natural & unorderly - you basically need to not care what they look like. Does that even make sense? :thumb:

Thanks for the compliment..

Excellent work cantrell00.
Looks incredibly natural. The fish contrast well against each other and the tank.
An outstanding example of what can be achieve in a large mbuna tank.


It's tanks like yours that inspire me to set-up a mbuna tank.

Ya know.. That is why I did it.. All the time I see photos of fish that aren't identified and it is frustrating. Most of the time it is when you see a really impressive fish that you aren't familiar with either!

Thanks!

Thanks Danni... I think it needs more red.. Like real red. Like Pundamilia Nyerei Red!

Eventually...
