    Hello kind folks,

    Excited to share pics of my new tank I set up a few weeks ago.
    There was no plan; design; theme etc, wherever there is space, I just stick in plant cuttings.
    There are quite a few caves and hollow logs for the Cockatoo Dwarf Cichlids.

    There is a handful of shrimp and silver tip tetras as well.

    Thanks bud. Yup, trying to get some unusual plants going in that one.
    But it is still a mess. The Rams; Kuhli's and the shrimp are settling well.
    Will post a pic or 2, but the glass is so old, it is hard to get clear shots

    I am so excited, a few weeks ago there were about 3 baby Apisto's. Unfortunately looks like only 1 made it.
    It is so hard to get a pic of them, they are tiny, and never sit still

    I had 4 blue dwarf gourami, and some silver tip tetras until today.
    Moved them to the other tank so this one will only have Apistos

    Nice. I wanted apistos too and I can get them but the problem is I have way too many Malawi fry in that tank
