Hi everyone, here's a pic of my tank. Yes you can see a Demasoni there but it's now gone so just ignore it! Thanks for a great site.

Wow Hubba hubba
Your landscaping rocks are rocking good.... I like the plant in the middle, that sets the contrasts wonderfully well. The plant real? The rocks toward the top of the water are just awesome...

What kinds of fish other than the demon demonsi are in that tank?

The lighting is extremely vivid. You done do good!!!!!

Keep the pictures coming as the tank grows the fish have babies!!!

Hi, jes the plants are real - they are Giant Vallis and i grow them in an aquatic pot cut down in size and hidden behind the rock in the forground. I use a commercially available groing soil/compond and the plants thrive on it. The other trophs are Kasakalawe by the way

Hey Bilansor - sorry but i read your other post regarding the tail biting incident first so posted this same pic there too. My mistake. Here's another one thats slightly closer.

Just 4x 36watt daylight and a blue actinic on a timer for first thing in the morning and last thing at night. i've had enough of the rocks too - i need a change and think i will try a DIY rock background, not the concrete/styrofoam type but siliconing thin slices of rock to the back side. Need to hide all the pipe work too as i prefer a 'clean' tank that hides the equipment. Seen plenty of attempts but can't seem to get the right rockwork that i can cut up.

i think the rockwork looks fine!
keep an eye on the two different tropheus sp. because they most likely will crossbreed. :Nervous:

I was at Lowes the other day and I seen a display of man made rocks they had and there were quite a bit to choose from and I was having all kinds of ideas for background with them.. check them out . about 2 to 3 inchs thick and would be easy to work with. But myself I like the setup you have now it would hide a lot of fry in them rocks.. LOL . but to each his own .. you could always start a new tank and do a diy back ground..
