Thanks!! I had a bunch of different setups to get here. Spent a bunch of money and when it came to the end... I used a few cobble stones an a hammer for free. Plants are doing good too... I will add 5 rustys and i should be good. Unless someone can tell me something that would be better.

Tank looks awesome! I would be worried about the plants though cichlids are not very plant friendly. How many gallons is it? I may be able to help with some stocking ideas.

Side profile. I was thinking of making another run of from the center (of the pile from the front) to the front glass and maybe try a 3 spices tank yellow labs 5 rustys 5 and yellow top 5. I haven decided on that yet but i know i will have at least one of the other 2.

My 40b is just a plant nursery with some snails for now but my 55 is my mbuna tank I have kenyiis, fuellebornis, both I have 1m:3f. I also have 2 ebj, 1 rusty, 1 yellow lab, 1cobalt blue zebra, 1 albino red top, and 2 clown loaches. Oh yeah my wife surprised me with a dubosi so he is in there also. I plan on removing the uglier johanni and getting the prettier one some girlfriends. And then moving the loaches to a 125 peacock tank I'm planning for next year and then throwing some other cool looking mbunas in thre to take there place.
