Default 180 gallon cycled and looking for stocking ideas!!

Hi guys,

After a lot of good advices on floor strength before the purchase of the aquarium and levelling the tank while I was setting it up - the 180 gallon is finally ready! I just wanted to share some pictures of the set up as it currently looks and was also wanted to hear some input from members on stocking the aquarium!

Currently I have the following in the aquarium:
1) 6 neolamprologus leleupi
2) 5 cyprichromis micro
3) 4 placidochromis lupingu tanzania
4) a pair of golden head comps
5) a pair of black calvus

I want to add it some tropheus - around 15 to 20. I am considering duboisi since they are likely the least aggressive of all trophs.

Do you guys consider this as a good long term mix where I can have all the species breeding?

I know it would have been best without the Malawi hap: placidichromis but blue color with the white speckles is too sweet not to have them in the aquarium!

Any other ideas for aquascape will be greatly appreciated too!

Thanks in advance.

In my opinion you can do better on the aquascape.... since you want to have trophs.

You can make a study case out of youtube videos.
There are great ideas on how you can make it work better. Better for the fish, and better for the eye also.

I debated so many times how to arrange the tank, did a bit of research and every time you learn new stuff.

i recently change the aquascape of my tank, havent shoot a new vid, but i can contribute with this http://youtu.be/WcFXs9fUT9c

if you do a rearrange shoot some new pics .
Theres always room for improvement.... I'm still learning lots of stuff.

Good Luck Bro
