Hi Liz

Why don't you try and stick with a true Biotope tank? Ditch the rainbows and
look into Cyprichromis Leptosoma species, commonly known as Sardine
Cichlids. They are endemnic to the lake and IMO are far more interesting
than Rainbows, but I suppose its a matter of taste. As for plants I would
suggest a nice thick wall of Vallisneria. Good luck and be sure to send us
pics when your Tanganyika setup is ready, I'd love to see it.
