Ok people as promised here is my Lake Tanganyikan setup! Wanted to first start of with a bit of background regarding Lake Tanganyikan. Scientists estimate that the age of this lake is between 9 to 12 million years. It is considered that this is the second deepest lake in the world and the longest with it being 1,433 meters. The four countries surrounding this lake is Burundi on the north east, Tanzania on the east, Zambia on the South and the Congo on the west. There is an extremely high mineral content in this lake. The pH has been measures at9.0. There is over 350 species of fish in this lake. The lake has also got fresh water jellyfish, sponges and some aquatic snakes. The rainy months are from about February through to April, visibility is very poor during these months. During June to August the temp is loc and the water starts clearing but there be algae blooms. As for the most visibility; it will be between September to November. Would like to thank the following people for this info: Lake Tanganyika First of all some of the stuff I used: Used some old sea shells that I got over the years, but here is also the shells that comes from Tanganyika. As substrate I used some crushed coral and pool filter sand mix: Were it comes to plants: Vallis was the way to go as it helps a lot with filtration and also strong enough to survive in the tank. Now for my beautiful fish and also a tank shot before they started to do their own scaping!:-" Neolamprologus multifasciatus Common name Multi Lined Cichlid: Now for the tank: At present the tank are still a bit messy but they need time to do their own scaping. Ones I see they have settled in I will remove quite a bit of the shells that has not been taken over by them. Any advice you guys would like to give is welcome. A lot of them will still move to the other 3ft. But all eating and looking healthy. Sorry if the photos are not to clear only a phone camera!
