Woah nice comps! Also love the Xenos....did you acquire them recently? CF? Always been meaning to keep them...

Inspiring me to do a Tangan setup as well...hee hee...Still think this type of setup suits them best...granite rocks and fine sand.

Ups ya bro!

Thank you all for your kind comments.

This tank is specially setup for the Xenos, thus the open spaces.
Somehow I still feel there are too many rocks inside. Intend to remove some rocks to create more open spaces.

BTW, I have another 4 Enantiopus melangenys & 2 Xeno ochrogenys ndole in a 2 footer at the balcony under conditioning. They will join the other Xenos in the 5 footer soon.
