Just a short video of one of my new groups (I have another that is waiting on their tank...I just scaped it and am finishing it up for them so another video of that group will be coming shortly)

I have some peacocks (Aulocara baenschi) in this group as well so we will see how things go. This entire group will move to my 75G sometime this month (after I rehome some mbuna I have in it and paint the back). If the peacocks don't work out I will either move them to another tank or find a new home for them. I thought I would try this as I liked the mix of colors being presented by the group. I have read that often the kyoga flamebacks will not color up with other fish but I was hopeful that if the group was raised together they would do OK together. Time will tell I suppose.

Same setup the N. rufocaudalis had ... these guys just inherited it :) It will work for the time being as they are small yet. And my tank designs are pretty limited...local rock is basalt and more basalt or I can buy some river rock (that's what I used in the P. chromogynos tank). Black backgrounds and basalt rock make for dark tanks. The plants add a little brightness but overall, I know they are pretty dark. I've come to love them though. Very calming to watch and observe for the most part.

I can zone out in my fish room sometimes. It is very therapeutic.

Move up for these guys to the 75G tank...I like the look of the tank and know the vics don't need the wood or plants...those are for me :lol: I told my husband I should have carved our initials on the big wide piece of driftwood to the left of center...I may still do that just to add the finishing touch to the tank :wink:

Thanks Jim. I'm going to work on one like this (with a little information in it) for the N. rufocaudlis also.
