    Hi

    This was my first attempt (8 months ago) at setting up a Malawi tank and I think its come up alright. Over the past six I have kept every thing from gold fish to arowanas Rocks are a combination of New Zealand South Island natural schist and green schist. Substrate is coral balls and aragonite. Hidden in the back of the tank is limestone chip/rock, which over a period of time dissolves gently and is great for keeping the PH at around 8 > 8.5 permanently. Temp is controled by two digital 500w stainlees steel heaters at 26.5 deg. I run two large cannisters filters (eheim & aqua one) one filters through a 11w UV sterliser. These cannister filters are loaded with eheim media. Which for me is a personal preference and something I have learnt from past trials and tribulations. Also there are two internal eheim filters and a waver maker/power head. Water changes 25% every two weeks. I have just cleaned the filters which based on current tank stock and tank cleaning regime (fortnightly) will mean that once every 8 months will be perfect. I am currently toying with the idea of changing to a 60gal sump filter but the current filter system seems to be working out great for me at the moment and I am reluctant to change. I would appreciate any comments on my current set up.
    Thanks from down under.

    wow, it looks great. fish are huge.
    if it is all working well and you are having no problems with tank maintenance, then i personally would leave things as they are.

    Personally I’d lose the urn but the tank and fish both look beautifully-maintained.
