Just a side note in relation to that article.

The Lake Malawi cichlids mentioned are some of the most aggressive and should not be attempted by anyone who has NO experience with mbuna.

The peacocks / Haps make a stunning tank but again caution needs to be had and all Male is generally the way to go for color variation. This however requires that you have several spare tanks setup and running as until you find a mix that works, you WILL be removing fish regularly. Trust me on that I have a 180G all male Hap/Peacock tank and it is hard work.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)
