#177: 2600L Biotope Aquascape Mbuna Warzone

Jesper Juul Taustrup Ryomgård, Denmark


Again the aquarist has successfully pulled off a strong Rift Lake entry with his aquarium. Unfortunately I don't know enough about Mbuna to know if these fish would actually be found living together in the wild. The use of fish from different collection locations "reefs" would seem to dictate that they're not. However it's a good generic Mbuna habitat and a striking aquarium. I'm particularly fond of the biofilm on the rocks it enhances the natural appearance of the tank.

Lovely Malawi reef style tank.

Wow! That's an impressive tank and very well designed to represent a Malawi biotope. Nicely done.
