Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder ... I quite like the trunks and artificial plants. I'd remove the pipe fitting and the garbage can guy. IMHO doing so will take the tank to the next level.

You have some very aggressive mbuna in the tank. You want to fill the tank with rocks so they have dozens of hiding places and territories to claim.

+1 to adding rocks. Fake decor is great but it doesn't replace the natural stuff. I would also purchase smaller, finer substrate such as aragonite (crushed coral) because mbuna love to dig. With mbuna, the more rocks and stuff you have though, the happier they are.

I wanted to try to change the substrate but I was quite sure how to go about it, would it be too stressful to my fish to take them out and change it all?
