New Mbuna tank

Unread postby toomanyfish » Sat Sep 26, 2015 3:55 pm

Another simple yet stylish mbuna aquarium! Have used a simple layout using 3 main large rocks coupled with some medium and smaller pieces to create hiding places for these fish.Led lights with a blue tinge are used and keep the center in focus creating dark spots and shadows on the sides.The lights are also movable and not fixed so a lot of combinations and settings can be done.Eheim internal filters, kept in the dark areas of the tank so that they barely visible are used for filtration.
As always we would love to know what you think of this tank!

Nice looking. Rock placement is very nice.

One more question, "How to click low light tanks as this one?" Please share camera specifications.

Really a beautiful tank setup.
The tank is as good as Aamir return to the forum.
Good to see you.

Any dead fish can flow down the river but it takes a live one to swim back up stream.
