when you set up a new tank,hide an extra

long overdue for an update. I got some new decorations for the tank, to redo the aquascaping a bit! Two pics, one with the dawn/dusk lights only, the other with full day lights on:

Thanks guys! I wasn't 100% on these decorations for an African Cichlid tank, I mean everything I've read says they love rocks and caves, but I really wanted to give it a try and the fish really seem to enjoy it so far. It does plenty to break the tank up, and provides lots of things for them to swim in and through. Maybe the rock background combined with the new decorations is good enough to make them comfortable

they look like they're enjoying themselves to me :)
as they mature more perhaps you may need to add more rock workfor them,
just see how they get on.
