    They look stunning Morak.... I didn't know you could keep Malawi's and plants in the same tank actually. I always thought that the Malawis eat the plants.

    Just a stupid question, how many fish do you have, and how many litre tank... that tank looked a bit overcrowded.

    Don't know how many are in there now. Plants don't last very long in there and I have another planted tank.

    Tank is about 440l, canister filter and internal.

    Zoom -you can put anubias and Vallis Gigantea in with Malawis and Oscars - the secret is to plant them between a few rocks that the fish cant lift

    OK... that makes sense.

    Thanks Zaf. I'm not really into the Malawis... not sure if I like them or not... but I have seem all the Malawi tanks in LPS have half eaten plants.

    Looks like everything is blacklisted. I'm sure almost everyone has something that is blacklisted in their tanks, I know i'm guilty.:blink1:
