For filtration I've got an Emperor 400 (came with tank) and 2 Aquaclear 50's. Substrate is sand, with 2 rock piles - 1 about 1/2 way up and one about 1/4 of the way up with plenty of caves and I'm going to try to pile them up a little more before I add the fish.
After researching I think I can get about 12 fish of the type(s) that I'm considering: Acei, Rusty's, and Electric Yellow Labs. I'd like to get some opinions on my choices as well as any alternate choices that I could consider. I'm going to an auction that from what I hear draws buyers and sellers from 2 states away.
Thanks in advance for any and all advice!
Maybe nobody replied because you don't NEED advice necessarily, your whole setup, and stock list sounds pretty solid. And I do that a lot, just graze on here when I'm bored, read people's posts, setups, and don't respond to them that often, don't take it personal. Another common couple mbunas to check out would be red zebras, demasonis, or Kenyis, all pretty popular, colorful fish.
