I use an emperor 280 for filtration. Im really diggin it. My first biowheel. The fish in the second pic is a new addition and as far as I can tell it is a Telmatochromis dhonti. But Im not sure.

Eltwitcho- wow thanks man. I was actually hoping for some camera tips since I hate using the flash. Quite nice to hear after your camera work. That beast is only 3" long. His teeth have grown considerably in the last 3 months but I havent gotten any pics of good quality since. Its a Lepidiolamprologus meeli. The calvus is by far my favorite.
he owns the tank.

Yes.... quite the pecking order at that. If anyone has tried to mix larger tanganikans it gets complicated because they establish a large territory. The calvus is on top, and in descending order Pulcher, Meeli, dhonti, Chalinochromis sp"Ndobhoi" and the julidochromis last.

There is a trick I use that works 3/4 of the times. Add one fish at a time based on aggresiveness and size and let them establish territory first. Then add fish saving the most aggresive for last. Once a fish establishes territory it usually keeps it. No problems yet.

awesome tank and fish...
...you like the bio wheel? see i have the penguin 330 and it was good for a few weeks but im not happy with the filtration it gives and definately feel like i have to buy new filter inserts for it every few weeks which is becomming costly... lemme know what you think

Thanks for all the replys.....

It was a choice between the AC300 and the Emp 280. Ive used the ACs for like 7 years now and I must say Im impressed with the Emp so far. The media basket is what sold me. I probably wouldnt of gotten it without. So far I like it. Its gotten a nice culture going and slowed down turning but the ammonia, NO2, NO3 are staying down.
