    Update: 1 Year later:

    A year ago I posted the first version of this tank ... I had a minor set back last summer when one of my original N. tretocephlus juveniles died while I was on a short vacation. That led to a couple other losses unfortunately and I also traded some other of the original fish. Over the past 8 months I re-built the community of fish. I am now quite happy with the over look, balance and movement.

    I keep most of my breeding groups in biotope tanks. I move pairs or breeding groups to special tanks to spawn and raise fry. I also take full advantage of Ziss & Marina water circulating breeder boxes. African Cichlids are what I breed mostly but have gotten more interested in catfish - corys & BN plecos in the past 12 months.
