    Hi @Gerhardt and welcome.

    Your tanks look great, my favourite being the Malawi tank (think I'm addicted to them). Your yellow tail acei looks really nice, been hunting for one for a while now. Does the driftwood not bring your pH to a more acidic side?

    Welcome to the forum! I'm very interested in seeing more of the 4ft tank. Am busy planning how best to set mine up when it become available in future and am liking the idea of adding an angel fish or 2, but want a community tank so looking at good tank mates.

    I do 2 water changes a week until the driftwood have settled. Water perimeter is currently good.
