how many africans do you currently have in the tank? I wouldn't recommend more then 4 or 5 in 30 gallon due to the fact that they are very territorial and even then, I wouldn't even put african cichlids in a 30 gallon.

Your tank really is too small for Mbuna African Cichlids. It would make a great shellie tank though!

Did your friend give it to you after trying for at least a month to sell that off craigslist (Hallsville)?

If so, the articles were still there earlier today, your friend should delete them.

If that is not your friend...Sorry! I almost considered taking that offer, I am always on craigslist.

Oops...I guess you got a different one. The tank from craigslist has almost exactly the same decor, and the fish almost look the same. Sorry, I had to ask.

Thanks.
