Sweet set up! My favorite species tank. Where did you get your plants?
Very Happy

Thanks. Actually got those plants at Michaels. I was nervous using them as they were not marked for aquarium use since they are sold for decorating. I cleaned before using and have had them close to a year now and have not seen any ill effects

Ron -- very nice, I think I counted about 12 peacocks and a Pleco. Is that your limit on peacocks for that size tank?

Male Peacocks:
1 German Red
2 Swallow Tails
2 Sulphurheads
1 Odd Blotch
1 Sunshine
1 Dragon Blood
1 Bi Color 500
1 Jacobfreibergi

3 female Peacocks but not sure what they are

Male Peacocks:
1 Azureus
1 Electric Blue Ahli
1 Yellow Blaze

Male Mbuna:
2 Yellow Labs

3 Synodontis Feather fins
2 Chocolate Bristlenose Pleco
2 Albino Bristlenose Pleco's

Although by most stocking capacity for a 90 this is a lot of fish, I will probably add 3 or 4 more Peacocks or near same size Hap over a period of time. While no real aggression issues now as they grow closer to maturity some aggression may occur. As you know with Africans a crowded tank lessons sometimes injuries as when the chasing starts, often the aggressor gets nipped at for causing a ruckus. So they all have to watch over their shoulders a bit to keep from being chased.

The vid is a little old and has some fish not on the list but I lost quite a few a few months ago with some mysterious illness and had to start restocking again.

I ill be adding a vid on my 55 Mbuna tank soon. This tank coming along nicely and I will share soon.
