I guess it's nice if you like big colorful healthy fish in a large nicely landscaped tank. :D :lol:

I recently had 12 pairs of fish spawn in this tank,all successfully.I suppose if you include the Synodontis Multipunctatus that makes 13 pairs spawning with 1 unlucky host fish pair.I have found over the years that primarily I am a "water keeper", "rock pile designer" then fishkeeper.I attribute the spawning of Malawi cichlids in a Malawi community tank to observation and construction of tailor made caves and crevices.

Sure anyone can breed Malawis but I find it a challenge to breed several different species whilst keeping them all happy in one tank.I have made hundreds of mistakes and I am sure I will continue to but this hobby is amazing and I am only a fraction of the way through the experiences I want to experience from Malawi fish.I will never repeat any mistakes I have made though :)

My next plan is to have a Ps.Demasoni species tank.

Nice fish!!!
Any chance you know what species the fish is with the red/orange top fin in the first pic? I have a very similar fish and I'm trying to figure out if hes a hybrid before I introduce any potential mates.

Hi,

I've seen Chris's tank in the flesh a few times & he has some really stunning fish.

Re: the Peacock in the last pic I believe its a Eureka Red

The Blue fish with the orange dorsal is a Greshaki

I love lake malawi's haven't keep them for the last few years since I switched to a planted south american set up but africans have been my all time favorites.
