Indeed I do.
And when I'm gone any length of time the mbunas have to have a fish sitter feed them otherwise all hell will break loose. Bratty fish lol. I keep all males so it's even more touchy.

i tried my hand with mabuna….interesting fish…not
afraid to give my arm a peck or two on water change day !
and i enjoyed the mouth brooding part.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
