Hi Jonny
Great update on your progress with the conversion, tank looks good the fish are going to love it in there, have you got cover glass on the tank if not i would advise that you get some as malawi cichlids are very good jumpers always best to be safe than sorry. :tu: :text-coolphotos: :tu:

plastic condensation covers you can get from your lfs will do the job either that or have some glass sliders made to fit your tank :tu:

I love that cabinet. Commented on the other thread. What fish are you going to be stocking?
