 Had  set  up  this  6ft  Tank  at  my  uncle's  place  a  few  months  back.
 It  has  the  most  commonly  available  fish.

 The  dimensions  are  6ft  X  2ft  X  1.5ft.
 I  don't  remember  exactly  how  many  are  there,  must  be  around  40.

 Looks  really  neat  and  impressive.  
 The  tank  size  is  really  good  and  you  may  keep  even  the  predatory  haps  in  this.  I  think  I  saw  a  few  Venustus  in  there,  is  it?
 Now  my  questions  :)
 
 What  is  the  type  of  Rock  used?  How  did  you  stack  them  so  high?
 I  think  I  can  see  a  driftwood  there,  do  you  think  its  a  good  idea  to  keep  driftwood  in  a  malawi  tank?

 There  are  2  Venestus  in  there.
 The  Rocks,  I  don't  know  the  name,  but  they  were  got  from  Konkan  for  construction  and  were  lying  around.  They  are  red  in  color.
 
 Just  piled  the  rocks  one  above  the  other.
 About  wood,  well,  I  don't  think  that  hard  water  is  really  important  for  there  farm  raised  fish.  Used  the  wood  to  cover  empty  spaces.

 Beautiful.  Some  HUGE  rocks  you  have  in  there.  Any  material  like  Styrofoam  to  avoid  damage  to  the  base?
