    Hi
    See pics off my new setup:
    I used limestone as a background and plased tubes behind them creating a row off "fish Condo's" 005.gif
    Hopefully this will be hidingspots and or breading caves for fish.
    The limestone are not siliconed in, exept for the top one that secures the lot and will make removal easier.
    I am planning on adding only Fairies - Neolamprologus. Will be mixing three colours.
    Let me know if u like the setup. hammer.gif
    Will post more pics as I go along

    How do I add a pic?

    Very cool, I like the lime stone idea, its always tricky finding a nice "back drop" that adds a natural looking finish. Did you treat the stones in any particular way, as in washing them and so on?

    Hi

    Slojo - You are welcome slojo - wouldnt be posting pic iff I wanted to keep it a secret:idea:

    AidanEel - Didnt treat limestone at all - ran a test tank with some malawis for a couple off months to make sure it is safe - they bred twise in the last month - so I think it must be good :bigsmile:.

    Glad you guys like it

    T.J :p

    Hey man you not worried that the lime stone will raise your PH a bit high and make your water very hard, it is essentially CaCO3? Thats why your Cichlids did so well :)
