absolutely awesome tank, and great rockwork! I'm jealous :-D

Question: do you plan to ever remove the rocks to do thorough cleaning of the tank, like every couple of months or something? Or will you just leave the rocks in the way they are? I've always wondered if it's really necessary to remove rocks to clean the gravel deep inside large rock structures. A silver lining of the work is that you get a chance to re-aquascape the tank!

thanks for the kind words. The fish like the configuration alot. The are a lively bunch. No attacks on anything yet, they are still young lads, though.

As far as removing stuff to clean the tank, Everything inside it is not much more than a month old. So I probably will remove the rocks every couple of months to rearrange everything. I get bored easily.

the tank is looking great,the fish look so nice and bright.
i have the same problem as you,however apparently i was reading that it's not a bad thing
with these boys,i can't remember where exactly i saw this article,i was looking up something.
it also mentioned(and i don't know if it's right or not ) that the main reason for the agressiveness
is because of the lack of hiding places,also females being in the same tank close by,gives
off the wrong message to the males,because the females only usually turn up for breeding.
like i said i don't know how much of that be true,however it made for interesting reading.
