Default 422 Tangan

Got some time so snapped a few shots and share my 422 setup. Simple rocks and sand, with inhabitants no larger than 4". Pardon the poorly taken shots - best I can manage

Start with a full tank shot and a group shot





Leleupi - female of a pair that has been spawning lately, overlooking her 'nest'

N. Cylindricus


My fav....Nkambae Kendalii




Ventralis....that I find getting a little too big for this community

Just a suggestion bro, you should create a separate rock pile so that not a single species would take over everything else. Mind telling where did you get that alto?

Nice nice, a tangayikan tank with different species. Like the rockscape and white sand! Btw where will the lelupi spawn their egg on... The rock surface?

Bro thanks fpr sharing pics. Interestingly looks very similar to my Tanga 422 com set up. I use a different gravel though, believe saw it on website of a compay called Hawaiin Gravel (?) and it is similar to their Tannga mix - your fine coral mix to me seems nicer
