Thanks for the replies guys. I probably should have mentioned, I'll be getting a few sandsifter tangs so I want to keep the whole (or at least a lot of) of the foreground free of plants. Also, I won't be having any specialised equipment such as co2 and fertilisers.
I'm keeping the rocks as they are to provide shelter for both pairs of julidochromis, and alas that big rock that all of you like is plain old latex
But yes, I was thinking of putting those vals behind the latex rock as you've all suggested.
The photo was taken a couple of weeks ago, a day or 2 before I put the fish in..So yes it's already got the fish in
So far what I have in there is a tiny frontosa, 4 synodontis ocellifer, 2 pairs of julidochromis and about 10 cyprichromis jumbo kitumba.
Anubias are good because they're nice in tang tanks and they can handle a high pH, but with this day and age, and with living in Australia, anubias is just too expensive
