Coo - two marine tank owners already! I wanted a marine tank but I'm away from home a lot and it's unfair to expect my wife to look after a high maintenance hobby.

i've just started a malawi cichlid tank. annoyingly it has a whitespot problem (easily solved with the right stuff) and i need 4 more fish to make the tank optimal in terms of population. cichlids are quite aggressive and you have to overstock them.

out of interest, is there a logic in adding newcomers while the tank's under medication? could prevent anything being brought in by the newcomers. local pets at home is open and has cichlids 2 for £15 just now…

I've kept Malawi (and Tanganyika) cichlids for years, until last year when they became too much for me to look after (I had 19 tanks!). Now I just have a six foot tank with three Oscars (about 8") and a four foot tank with a clarias catfish of almost 18". I also have two small tanks with cherry shrimps and a one metre tank with some community fish. All the other tanks are empty now.

I found the best place to buy Malawis is from a private breeder. They are usually much better quality and cheaper than pet shops. Check Facebook - there are several sellers on there and some advertise here: http://www.aquarist-classifieds.co.uk/php/index_cat100.php

Funnily enough I used to know a Nigerian who used to export tropical fish. Lovely guy, wish I could remember his name.

The Nigerians import thousands of tons of fish but that's dried Atlantic cod from Norway. It stinks but they love it.
