    So after losing the battle with algae I turned my previous planted setup into another Tanganyika tank with a few species that I would either not have space for in my office tank or that would not be compatible...

    Used Aragonite as substrate as with the big tank and decided on a Dragon Rock scape for some artistic effect. (yeah yeah I know it is not exactly what occurs in the lake but it is not too far off.... :))

    Added some Neothauma shells that I stole form the big tank.

    Filtration is the standard Juwel system with a few added goodies - (batting, zeolite etc...)

    The Juwel lights are a bit too much illumination for a Tang tank I think so I am only using a 1 meter LED strip attached to the middle support of the cover. It gives a nice soft glow.

    Stocking:

    Neolamprologus brevis

    Cyprichromis Leptosoma Mpulungu

    Neolamprologus caudopunctatus

    Neolamprologus compriceps Goldhead Kasanga and

    Julidochromis regani


    So here it is: (White balance is a bit off, pic taken with cell phone...)

    Thanks man...!

    Got the Dragon Rock from Dorry Pets. They ordered 3 bags for me and I took most of it but could not use the really big pieces. A bit scared for when the fish start shifting sand around w.r.t. stability of it all... but will cross that bridge when we get to it. :)
