Additional Information
The aquarium was started at September 08. „The Tanganyika Project“ was completely established in DIY version (stand, tank, cover, lightning, background). The rate of water changes is once a week about 30%. New water is prepared with Sera Aquatan, and a few days after, Nutrafin African Cichlid Conditioner is added. Once a month Waterlife 8.3 Buffer is also added. I use Hai Feng, Tropical leaf food, Easy Fish Artemia, and Fa HUML Cyclops food. Xenotalapias and Leptosomas has a few time their spawn. They care about their youngs by their own. For awhile, I was experimenting with a number combinations, untill, finally, I found out the right combination of mouth-carriers.
