how about a tanks section?

Looks very nice. Personally I like more rocks than that but like you said if you have haps/peacocks less is better. I'd like ot see some pics when you get some fish.

I think you may have a chance of cross breeding. the females look similar and the dominent male could "have" all of them. I dont know if its just a varient, I've heard both ways.
