My Cichlid is Bored

If anyone has every read my posts before they have heared about my Blue zebra Chichlid. Its a 3 inch long fish living in a 10 gallon tank, and besides his normal tearing out all the plants and ornaments and re-organizing them, I think hes bored, or has nothing else to do in the tank. I would love to put more fish in but my tank has reached its capacity with just him in it plus some other snails. So, has anyone thought of putting Toys into their tank for their fish to play with?

My Tank

I just added a medium sized bobber and sunk it to the bottom of the tank for him to play with?

Oh okay. That is like nothing like there natural habitat. I would get A LOT of rocks and make the tank like it habitat. Look up african cichlid tanks and make that tank like that. That should make him more active.

Sandstone slates

Im thinking of taking some items out and replacing them with some giant rocks or sandstone slates to make a nice high rock formation, any ideas on this?

Ya that should work. I would also stack slate on top of each other and just do a lot of rocks.
