My first Mbuna tank...the story so far

I took a squeeze from my other tank (190l community tank), its started cycling now it just took a while, I think the low lvl's of ammonia were slowing things down, Ive got NitrItes and NitrAtes coming through :) getting proper excited now lol.

adding some flake food daily to keep the ammonia up, Im gonna try increasing the ammonia lvl's to boost the amount of bacteria, gonna add about 18 - 20 juvenile fish at once and rehome the ones that get picked on/are 2 aggressive

I think I need a few more caves too, you cant really have too many hiding places with mbuna can you ?
