Did you buy all these fish as adults or did you raise from juvie? and where did you order them from

INCREDIBLE tank by the way, I would like one just like that with the large haps.

Marco,

The Tyranno's are wildcaught (as jung adults), but the Bucco's, Moorii's, Holotaenia's and Venustus for instance are own tank raised fish. I always try to start with small groups (10) of young fish so I can select the best one's. I bye them in Holland and Germany from store's or private persons.

When I activate this topic it takes a rather long time to show up. Do you all have that? Is it because of all the pictures or is this just a slow site?
I have already downgraded the pictures to 640x480 pixels which makes them 50K on average.
I dot not have this problem at other forums.

Wow those tyranos are awesome! Are any of them full grown? Would you expect to have some problems when they get larger?

One of the nicest malawi tanks I've ever seen! Good job!

The Tyranno's are indeed great fish. Yhey are not yet full grown. They can get about 35 cm.
I don't expect problems because the tank is large enough and they are not really agressive.

Thank you all for your positive comments !!!

Jook, I have done a lot myself (with a friend). The tank, frame and furniture is comletely self made. Large part of the price were the Back to Nature modules and the technique. I think when you want to buy this in a shop it will cost you at least 12K, I have done it for 8.

I swear those BTN modules are a better investment than any car. :lol:

Fantastic tank bro, I'd be really proud of that, especially considering you constructed the majority of it yourself. Beautiful specimens of fish too, I'll have to hunt you down next time I'm in NL and steal, I meant see, it for myself.
