Haha wow! Thanks for the awesome compliment!! There are ALOT of awesome setups on here from great members that I'm jealous of!

But thank you! Glad I've inspired you. Nice tank btw... 700 gallons huh? I can only dream of something like that.

Branches look good. That's some bubble wall ya got there!! I wouldn't add a crawfish it won't last IMO. Others may have different opinions but I wouldn't do it.

They have every Malawi cichlid imaginable. Someone help me decide what to get. I am thinking a small rock hugging fish.
