In a month or 2 we will move to another house and this tank will be stripped.

We use the glass to built another smaller tank, because of a wooden floor in our new house.

The new size of the tank will be 2.70 x 0.85 x 0.60m.

That tank is amazing such a shame to strip it. Undoubtably you'll do an excellent job on the next!

The new tank is still beautiful despite being smaller!! I love the look of the rock work and the way you have hidden the outflow from the filters at the top, very natural. :thumb:

The fish are also looking great and I thoroughly enjoyed some of their close ups. :fish:

I am impressed! Which variety of tropheus do you have and at what temperature are you running the tank? Hey, any tips on the great photography (stills and video)?

We keep Tropheus moorii "Lufubu", 5 F0 + 5 F1 and 2 youngsters. The temperature is 27 degrees Celsius.

I use iMovie to edit the images. I got a Canon Legria HFS-21 and I use a tripod.

My wife makes the photo's. She uses a SONY DSC-HX200V.

Nice update! The fish are looking great and I love to see the algae returning.
