Mbuna Fry tank setup

Recommended Posts

So I have a yellow lab that's holding and wanted to get her own tank setup so maybe I can get a few fry out of the deal.. found a 20 gallon for 30 bucks , stand without the top for 20. 

Used substrate, 50% water from original tank, sword In moss ball, vallisneria, small crypt, two struggling anubias and coco hut from the old tank. Dosed some ammonia fix, a little easy green and iron. 

Fluval nano 7000k light ( had to build a custom stand for it ,being made for a rimless tank it didn't fit on mine ) . An old hob filter ( being replaced or used along with a new ACO medium sponge filter )

Drilled 1/4 " holes in fake decor to give the fry some spots to hide.  

Now... let's see if I can get momma transfered in a few days and get some babies
