my 50G Malawi mix (VIDEO)

got sick of dealing with the aggression of mbunas, so i traded or sold almost all of them.

VIDEO
YouTube - Lake Malawi Tank

here's what's in there now:

1 S. Fryeri (Electric Blue Hap) - 6"
1 Red Top Lwanda Peacock - 6"
1 Sunshien Peacock - 5"
1 Yellow Tailed Acei - 4"
4 Yellow Labs - 2-3"
1 Ranbow Shark
1 Plecostomus

next fish is going to be a ruby red peacock.

i'm not going to have very many fish, since they are all going to be 6" and up in size. it's going to be an all male tank.

This is exactly the kind of fish I'm planning for my 55 that's almost done cycling. I want yellow labs, peacocks, an acei and make maybe a pleco or something. What is your female/male ratio? Your tank looks great

i have all males except for the labs which i have 1m/3f.

here's an update:

CLOSE UP
YouTube - Lake Malawi Cichlids

SUNSHINE
YouTube - Aulonocara Maleri "Sunshine" Peacock

OTTER POINT
YouTube - Aulonocara Jacobfreibergi "Otter Point" Peacock

1x S. Fyreri "Electric Blue" Hap
1x Otopharynx Lithobates "Yellow Blaze" Hap
1x Aulonocara Jacobfreibergi "Otter Point" Peacock
1x Aulonocara Maleri "Sunshine" Peacock
1x Pseudotropheus Acei (Yellow Tail)
4x Labidochromis Caeruleus-Yellow Lab
1x Rainbow Shark
1x Plecostomus

tank has pool filter sand for substrate and is filled with texas holey rock. background is 100% blacked out. i had colorful stones in there before. i think it looks good this way because the only thing colorful is the fish.

i need a red peacock species. i'm thinking a rubin red. then i seriously plan to just sit back and enjoy it. no more fish. no more changes. we'll see how that ends up going haha.

just now rather than zig-zagging the rocks i stacked them and kind of have it curve from the center out each way. not as many caves but looks good this way.
