    Holy crap, Greg. Looks awesome!

    Lots of spawning in there? Do any of the fry make it?

    Thanks guys.

    They hold a lot, but not many fry make it. There are a few that made their way down the overflows into the sump.

    Very nice! Refresh my memory on the lighting... I really like the colors, not only of the fish, but also the rocks and background. Did you go LED or fluorescent?

    I have 6. They are all still small so they didn't show up in the pics, and most of them hang out behind the background.

    Got it from. Aquariumhabitats.com

    Mbuna are truly a beauty in a big enough tank that cut down on aggression
    Very Nice, I wonder how many of us looking at this post thinking of setting up an Mbuna tank now...

    Do you have a water supply and drain in the utility room behind the tank? Those sure are some big water changes on that tank....

    There's a utility sink in the back room. I just pump it out into the sink and use a python to fill it.
