4ft tangayika tank.

Hi all,

Just up this tank about a week +. Getting some tropheus. The tank is the actual biotope for tropheus. PH9, KH12. Anyone can recommend what type of plants are suitable into this water parameter?

cheers.

My tropheus have done great with 3 different val species that I have and java fern. The background is giant val and marbles val, and the foreground are shells (for my shell dwellers) and tiger val. They tore my anubias apart. They did not eat them, just tore the leaves up.

Yes, I am talking about vallisneria. I have my orange bembas and red kacheses with juli transcriptus gombis (rock dwellers) and lamp. melegris (shell dwellers), cyps, and syno petricolas. I started with 21 bembas and now have almost doubled the population.
