Note: After much back and forth I have now but decided a second style to enforce. Pseudotropheus saulosi seemed like a good choice, since they remain quite small and a good contrast (especially the females) form to the Melanochromis.
Flake food several times a day in very small quantities -Tropical Malawi (staple food) -Tropical Spirulina forte (staple food) -1-2x Weekly adhesion tablet (Sera Spirulina Tabs) to graze on the disc -2x Weekly vegetables -any two weeks live food (Artemia or very small Bachflohkrebse)
Note: While the food supply may seem somewhat abwechslungsarm, but is specifically tailored to Mbunas. After I've had bad experiences with carnal food (fatty degeneration, overgrowth) I renounce now almost completely on this type of feed. Incidentally, Mbunas feed in Lake Malawi, too exclusively from the nursery of the rocks and there is also not a big variety. Is offered As but also occur microorganisms in the nursery also something meaty foods.
-Wasserwechsel 2x a week 60 liters. Filter is cleaned 1x per year.
