Love to see pics of your native marine tank if you could put up a few.

That's a lovely native marine setup. I do a fair bit of Scuba Diving and your tank looks spot on, just like what I'd see under water... :)

I must set-up a native marine tank one day just to give me an excuse to do more walking over rock pools.
There are some super species available.

How about a pic of your pelvicachromis taeniatus. I just have regular old Kribs myself and they are really light shy, but will come out from their "hidie hole " when the overhead light is out. I'm using a four foot double tube florescent fixture with two T8 verilus bulbs running temp of 6500k.
I've put a folded piece of news paper directly above the flower pot shards (on top of the tank) where the fish hang out during the "day" to cut down on the light hitting their area and it seems to help some. I have no dither fish in the tank and intend to use it as a "grow out" tank for young killifish if the Kribs aren't too aggressive. I had this pair of kribs for a years now and they have not spawned (to my great disappointment).
