  1. Greetings, So thanks for anyone that actually stuck through the first 6 months of my Reefing journey with this tank. The decision to go with Freshwater was a hard one but ultimately i think for the best as I will still get enjoyment from this tank while I think and plan about how I will get my "largish" reef. Tank Details Tank: Red Sea MAX 130D Heater: 100W Adjustable Submersible Flow: Ehiem Compact 1000 (250GPH) Return Light: 168w Chinese Black Box, white channel only (Warm White, Cool White, Red and Green LEDS) Filtration Intank Media Basket, Filter Floss > Carbon > Bio Spheres Substrate: Mix of types and sizes Aragonite 0.5 - 1.0mm Crushed Coral 1.0 - 4.0mm Black Gravel 1.0 - 2.0mm River Sand 0.5 - 2.0mm Livestock: Shell Dwelling Cichlids 6 Multies - Neolamprologus Multifasciatus 2 "Masked" Julies - Julidochromis Transcriptus Livestock: Clean up Crew 6 Zebra Nerite Snails ***Siamese Algae Eater*** - unsure if i want to add a SAE or Pleco, or leave entirely and just have the Tanganyika Cichlids. Aquascape Inspiration - Lake Tanganyika Aquascape Plan - Biotope (ish) I intend to create a tank similar in appearance to the above with some minor changes due to the livestock that I have picked. I'm not going to have as densely planted "carpet" as the fish are Shell Dwellers they will excavate and aquascape the tank how they see fit. I decided on the above as the Juliochromis (Julies hereafter) are typically rock dwellers and the Multifasciatus (Multies hereafter) dwell in shells in large colonies. I decided that the rocks off to one side (rear corner) would give me a greater amount of substrate area for the shell dwellers. I do have several slate pieces that I can add to break up line of sight and aggression if needed. Also I didn't want a bare sand and shells scape, I will be planting to give cover as well as movement to the tank at all level of the water column This is not going to be a true Biotope as a lot of the plants that grow in Lake Tanganyika are not available in the hobby, so I plan on adding plants that are as close as possible in place. Hence Biotope-ish. 😄 Aquatic Plants Anubias - various varieties Java Fern - various varieties Vallisneria - Various varieties Air Plants Considering having an emergent branch from the tank to which i can affix air plants.....
