They seem much happier in the 29g. I have the Turface Pro League in there to show what it is and how it looks as a substrate, I'm really loving it, i've never seen anyone with the turface red, only the grey (black) but this looks very natural to me and its quite cheap. I got mine for 30 bucks for 50# bag, but i know of alot of people who get theirs cheaper, mine is more because nobody locally stocks it so its special order. Here are a few pics, I have 3 peices of driftwood in as hiding spots but they seem to get along well for now.
Geo your right, The fish I wanna buy aren't going anywhere, I'll just stay with these 2 for about 2 weeks. I think thats adequite time to have the cycle pretty decently through. As far as compatibility with the Kenyi, I'm assuming the yellow labs might not be able to hold their own? few questions for ya'll
1. What Cichlids would be proper tank mates with the Kenyi. I'll have a few driftwood hideouts and a good deal of rockwork.
2. I'm looking for an orangish colored Cichlid, any ideas?
3. Is 7.6 pH too low for them? I'm assuming the rocks I get depending on type should raise the pH a little.
