New project- not sure what to do.

Stocking compatibility? Setting up tank and equipment?

New project- not sure what to do.

Postby grinner » Sun Oct 16, 2016 7:43 pm

Hi people, not been on here for a while.
I used to have a 5x2x2 full of aulonacara/haps and a few mbuna but packed it in when i moved house.

Recently decided to buy a new tank,not as big as before but should look good in the living room, an aquaone 275 cube tank,originally used for marine with sump and and u.v steriliser.

Lots of decisions to make.

Rockwork/substrate/mbuna or aulonacara

Hi Grinner,

Exciting times! I think personal preference is key here, depending on the length of your tank you can decide what would be best. Peas and haps require more open swimming spare, where mbuna like the protection of a lot of rocks and caves.

What will be your 'show fish'? Decide that and build from there.
