Additional Information This aquarium was inspired by the large clefts that occur on the rocky reef of Lake Malawi , decorated with lots of natural stone to provide a more conducive environment for Mbunas. Being a high aquarium, could also explore some levels, such as artificial stones on the surface and side, simulating a large crack in parts, so it created an equally suitable for haplochromideos midwater environment.
