There ya go quick snap of it. All the fish dashed off into hiding as soon as i turned the light on, still amazes me they can all completely hide theres some a lot of big fish in there

Anyway not a cast improvement just a few caves for them and stuff. Its hard to see the rocks behind the the ones at the front with a photo theres hundreds of hidey holes and stuff looks better when you see it in real life and can have a nosey.

While I'm here iv noticed one of my fish has been scraping itself on the substrate i think it might be getting white spot can i treat Malawi's with normal exit white spot treatment for tropical and cold water fish or does it have to be some sort of special cichlid treatment?
Ill add a picture of the fish i dont know the exact name its dark blue/black with white on its tail i have 6 of them

I like that fish. I'd stack the rocks more uneven. When scaping it's always good to take a step back and just look at it. The top looks level almost. Make it moreover they were placed my nature.

I read a book once on aqua scaping. It mentioned aqua scaping almost blind. Don't make things looked staged. Of course it may take time. It took me over a year to get my tank where I'm happy, for now. Like a true artist, your never happy and your, your own worst critic.

I hope that made sense.

I have a good feeling you may like this video. Enjoy it and really listen... It's a great video IMO.

Quick update, iv added more rocks and more ocean rock stacked at the back the fish seem to like it so im happy with it, how could i vacuum the gravel underneath all the rocks though without removing it all? Or will it be okay to just do the stuff thats exposed ?

Thanks
