Father"s Christmas present

Before, my dad had blue gravel a dirty tank and weird tile rock. Here is what it looks like after a day of work. We're replacing most of the yellow labs and oddball fish to mbuna.

Yes the entire makeover was a Christmas present. Today left us with 5traded yellow labs and a common pleco for a blueberry, acei, johanni, syndontis catfish, and a rusty. Tomorrow I'm going to add two zebras to cut down on the johannis aggression towards the other johanni and acei with some more blues.

Love that tank and stand! Thanks for sharing.

How do you find the large rocks go for cleaning and feeding? Just curious - love the layout.

The large rocks have been okay for feeding, the power head creates flow in the otherwise dead zone. The syndontis and bn pleco keep algae and rotting food from the bottom. Cleaning is a little more tedious because I can only clean the top layer of sand when doing water changes. But so far so good!
