Journaling Rescape/Stocking 30gal Holding Tank for Mbuna - Input Welcome

The title says it all. Thinking of adding a cave in bottom right corner but really like how the tanks looking now. I think it looks very sleek.

Oh and don't worry about the current stock, they'll be rehomed when I finally decide on what I want stock wise.

More rocks, lots and lots of rocks. They love rocky caves and such.

The picture doesn't due the rocks justice. They're actually decent in size, just look smaller cause of the angle. I think I'm gonna order another 3 lbs or so of this same rock to make a cave in the corner.

Any plants you'd recommend? I have a dual t5. Used to be a planted tank before I rescaped it.

Too much open space for the type of fish you like....I'd say Haps would be more suited for this one for they are open swimmers...

Not sure if lfs sells haps. Id have to check. I don't really know much about them as I've been researching mbuna mostly. What is their max size?

Anywhere from 28-30 gallons. Can't figure out exact cause the dimension are weird but it's In between there. And don't go freaking out about how it's to small, it's a grow out tank. Lfs sells anywhere from 1-2 inch

Haplochromis Sp. #44 ~5"
Haplochromis Sp. Blue Obliquidens ~3.5"
Haplochromis Flameback~4.5"
Haplochromis Burtoni ~6"


These are some nice fish to consider, research them & you will find them on Websites like Dave's Rare Aquarium

Not looking to pay a ton on shipping. I checked his site, couldn't find the haps you mentioned tho.

I was looking more into labs, zebras, convicts, maybe peacocks, etc. just something basic. This is my first time with cichlids. Not really sure how to put them together.
