Some updated pics

So I've been waiting a good deal of time since I dealt with that disease in my tank and I'm about to start ordering more fish. This time ill be doing mostly ps. elongatus and cynotilapia. For now I've redone some aquascaping to start preparing for the transition. Removed all my java fern cause I had enough of cleaning out small leaves stuck in the filters. For the last month I've been working with my amazon sword and really letting runners take over. While the plants looks kinda small its only because I did a major trimming of every single leaf that looked frayed and rotten. Pulled off over 100 leaves. Hopefully in the next month they really take off and fill this out nicely. The small section of the plant next to the filter intake is the main root system for all of them, I loaded it all with root tabs. One of my ob peacocks has really colored up nicely since the disease as well, hopefully he doesn't mind the soon to be roommates but I know that's wishful thinking.

I'm excited for my tank. I've been talking with several vendors and as soon as I find someone that has exactly what I want we will be back to the normal overstocked Malawi freak we know and love.

I was quite content with my discus and dragon fish until I saw all the beautiful fish you guys had. Thus converting me to the idea of Africans.
