My first Mbuna tank 55g

Well my rocks finally arrived in the mail for me to finally finish decorating the tank. I'm still not quite done moving the rocks around but this will work for now.

I currently have:
Yellow Lab x5
Afra Edwardi x6
Rusty Cichlid x5
Synodontis Cats x3

heh yeah they do look precariously perched like that, but I managed to find notches that let them fit together securely. It took forever though

Looks Great! A similar start to the 75g Malawi Reef I had setup...a black background would really show off the fish&rock as well as giving you the illusion of having more depth... I personally paint the backside of all my of my tanks black...

I'm using a white silica sand that I found from Menards, it was about $3 for 50 lbs and works great. As for style, I didn't have any particular plans I just kind of went with it arranging as I went.

Nice tank..if you think the rocks are fine and won't fall and damage your tank or fish then okay. Otherwise in would silicon them together or something.
