Hi Livvie, I am also in Wales. I have found rock on gumtree such as Pennant stone etc which is far cheaper to buy from a stonemason who has stuff left over than buy from an aquarium shop. I have also found rocks and stone around streams which I have soaked in boiling water and scrubbed clean.

Just over 300 litres. I've noticed though that so much fish waste gets caught up in the dead spots so thinking of changing design a little to get a siphon or turkey baster in there!

Yes not a bad idea, to be honest the FX6 by itself causes quite a bit of movement in the water.

A power head or wave maker may if pushing fish waste towards filter also move sand so have to weigh it up.

Where have you been sourcing your cichlids from? Breeders or local fish shop?
