Tell me what you think

This is my 40 gallon mbuna cichlid tank. I have 4 yellow labs, 2 demasoni, 1 red zebra, 1 common pleco and a cobalt blue crayfish in it. I'm running to aquaclear 50 hang on filters with a 400 gph power head. Besides being too small of a tank what else could I improve on.

It actually looks great! If I did anything I would add some plants to break the line of sight. It may help just enough.to keep it a little less aggressive.

I like it! Very minimalist. Reminds me of the rocks in this tank.

I like it! The different color rocks and simplicity are great! I like rocks in my tank. I did find a great piece of driftwood for mine also and sometimes that can add a perfect touch. Otherwise It's great!!
