I just added more lace rock to my tank, here is a pic of my new set up. I need a real camera to take better pics of the fish tho.

looks good. you could move that heater down behind the larger rock pile to conceal it.

Dude thats a good idea with the heater, since its not titanium should I be conserned with breaking or the fish getting burned? But it would be nice to hide it. Thanks for the help bro

Very nice setup. Heater being where it is doesn't bother me. I also don't like having heaters on one side of a tank. IMO it can lead to cold spots at the other end of the tank. When that happens all my fishies congregate at the heated end. Just my opinion though.

Good job.

If they do, increase flow around the heater (the one end of the tank thing should only happen with poor water circulation).

It won't hurt them in any event.

Yeah I kind of thought the same thing as far for the heater being in the middle but I have a circulation pump at one end which is really strong. So I think if I put the heater at one end it will be ok. I just changed the rocks a little, not really noticeable. I was paranoid the left side was going to come down. I should have used some egg crate, anyways here is a new pic. I will move the heater when I get a chance.lol

Here is my little devil chewere love this guy.

Thanks for all the comments guys, Benj its all about having fun with your tank bro. What looks good to you might not to someone else, just add your style man. I find thats the beauty in our tanks, we all add our own style and none are the same. If all our tanks looked the same it would be boring.lol All my rock is lace rock at the moment,some is darker due to brown algae,blah.

Nice. Very nice. Nice fish too. (Ps.E.Chewere.) I learned to like lace rock because it gives you different angles no matter how you put them. Nice tank. IMO.....I'm glad I dont have to use a heater anymore. I never hid them. I wanted to see what they where doing at all times. Didn't trust them...lol

I think it looks really cool but theres no moss in there! Idk if I like the saltwater look for these fish ya know, I like the potted look. But the tank IS beautiful. And btw, yeah you always think everyone elses tank looks great because you just havnt done it yet! I feel the same way but you know we could do just as well and probably will. Gl hf with your fish man!

There's no/little moss around most mbuna habitats that I've seen (in videos). It's sand and rock.

There's a guy or two on here that's done diving trips to Lake Malawi, has great pics; no moss.
