 looks  like  little  bit  over  crowded.  IMO  for  any  malawi  set  up  you  should  go  for  atleast  3  feet  long  tank.  
 
 Add  some  rocks  &  hiding  places  also.

 Its  2  ft.  cubical..previously  i  have  3  ft..but  after  renovation  its  2  ft  cubical..so  water  capacity  is  more  thn  my  3  ft.
 
 and  regular  water  change  helps  me  to  control  over  crowded  fishes.

 Hi  Maulik
 
 Its  not  entirely  about  how  many  gallons  the  tank  can  hold..These  fishes  prefer  length  and  breadth  more  rather  then  depth.  Discuss  or  Angles  would  be  more  happier  in  a  tall  tank.
 
 Regards

 Yeah  you've  got  venus  and  blue  dolphins,  both  of  which  go  to  8-9".  Massively  oversized  for  a  2'  tank,  let  alone  the  population  density.  They  look  good  as  juveniles,  but  that  tank  is  NOT  a  viable  long-term  solution  -  at  all.

 Nice  fishes  but  small  tank.
 
 As  mentioned  by  many  experts,  bigger  the  tank  more  the  chances  of  having  better  water  chemistry  and  happy  fishes.
 You  will  be  able  to  have  good  number  of  hiding  spots  and  thus  less  aggression.  Malawis  are  easy  to  keep  however  get  them  a  bigger  home.

 Cichlids  Often  Need  Hiding  places  n  they  also  love  Empire  !
 You  must  always  hav  a  place  to  hide  cichlids  like  U  can  use  China  clay  or  Glass  articles  in  it.
 &  also  keep  them  in  pairs  or  they  might  fight  !

 [  The  collection  of  fishes  you  have  there  is  really  nice  but  you  cant  alter  the  nature  and  contitions  they  live  in  for  a  long  period.  I  mean  to  say  is  they  need  rocks  to  hide,  space  to  swim  and  last  but  not  the  least  you  need  to  remove  that  drift  wood.  Cichlids  need  high  ph  wheras  drift  wood  brings  it  down.  So  for  a  very  simple  reason  but  an  important  one  you  need  to  make  a  few  chages.  Cheers.

 Sorry  for  late  reply,
 
 i  am  aware  about  over  population  in  my  tank  and  not  defending  myself.  before  posting  here  i  known  that  and  planning  to  remove  some  guys  very  soon.   
 
 i  didnt  find  any  ph  problem  in  my  water  with  driftwood.  This  tank  is  now  more  then  9  months  old  and  all  the  fishes  are  juvenile  at  that  time  and  they  grown  up  in  this  tank  only.  i  put  curvy  driftwood  for  hiding  and  fun  to  watch  when  they  move  around  it.
 
 Regarding  scape,  not  able  to  think  about  any  scape  in  2  ft.  cubical.   Any  idea  for  2  ft.  ?
