Hey guys,

Thought I'd show my setup to this point. I still need to add an air pump, lighting, sand, plants and paint the background.

It's 140 gallons, 6 footer with a FX 5 for filtration.

Fish in the tank are:

Aulonocara "German Red" - 1 Male 3 Females
Protomelas Taeniolatus "Likoma Island" - 1 Male 2 Females
Pseudotropheus Demasoni "Pombo Rocks" - 2 Males 7 Females and at least 40 fry growing out

I was going to add a group of Yellow Tail Acei, but think I'll just add 3 more female Demasoni and let a bunch of fry grow out in the tank.

I'm surprised the demasoni and the peacock get along and also wonder how long they have been together.

The setup has been up since mid December, I'll move it again when renos are done.

My breeding groups add up to about 55 inches(some are still growing), which could be considered as understocked. I have a lot of rockwork and plants for fry and pregnent females to hide. I counted this morning and there's easily 50 fry, at this point most fry that are spit won't make it.

The GR Peacock is about 3 years old and has spent most of his life with demasoni. Before the 140, he was with a group of 6 demasoni(1M,5F) in a 55 gallon.

He's tank boss for now, but the Tangarine Tiger is getting bigger and braver.
