The tank is indeed awesome! How long has it been set up? How do you get away with all those pairs?

Ah. Well Malawi are not pairing fish, each male needs a harem of 2 or more females to spread aggression. Also the peacocks will crossbreed, so fry from Tank #1 cannot be sold or given away. I would remove the females from Tank #1 and add females to Tank #2. Really beautiful tank!!

The **** on the tank#2 are not from my tank. They were bought in order to find some females for the big male that I have in tank#1.

The presence of the females in tank#1 is not with the objective to breed - just to have the males with some more colour! That´s why I have 4 Synodontes.

Awesome tank.

What kind of substrate, rocks, and plants are in it? I'm liking all of them and would be curious to know.

The substrate is withe sand, the plants are some Valisnérias (gigantea and nana) and some Anubias. The rocks are basalts from our shore.
