+1. It's a death sentence.
I know I said make a cave for him but I still thought it was a death sentence even then.

synodontis Angelicus is really cool and yea kinda costly $45-$65... Im still going to keep that one in mind. Does anyone else know of any cool cats? Also heres some pics of whats worth keeping as far as the aquascape. Although none of this will be going in this aquarium I just wanted to show you what I got with it. Also that really cool looking piece of what looks like some kind of rock but is somewhat a white but it doesnt look like live rock but it could be and it weighs literally like 25 pounds. Does anyone know exactly what it is? second photo, top right.

That's a cool rock.

Your materials look alright. Is that wood used? Has it leeched out already? Fresh wood would leech tannins and acids into the water lowering pH which fish from lake malawi would not appreciate.
