Can I know what is the type of blue frontosa that is more expensive than Burundi but cheaper than Zaire moba.

Think of getting 2 and mix with peacocks.

That would be a mpimbwe blue frontosa. Not the best of tank mates with malawis as they tend to be more mellow and might lose out during feeding time, but you can probably get by.

Today when I reached home I saw that my tank was abit cloudy unlike the past few days.

I cleared all my soil substrate 10 days ago and the tank was bare for 1 week and I only added 12 kgs of coral sand 2 days ago. The thickness is only 1-2 cm and is this that cause a bacteria bloom ?

Do I just leave it and let it clear by itself or water change more frequently.

if you already have fish inside, i think best to change water if the tank is still not cycled 100%.

Thanks but the water turn back ok today so think might be a mini bacteria bloom yesterday.

I am still waiting to get rid of my current congo tetras and rainbow fishes to house malawi in this tank.
