These are examples of Lake Malawi aquariums pulled off social media. Note that they are all heavily stocked. Heavy stocking is the key to keeping a good Lake Malawi aquarium.
This illustrates that Lake Malawi cichlids do best with very heavy stocking. Very heavy stocking reduces aggression. These aquariums all had very good filtration. If they didn’t the water would have been milky and the photos not very good.
All these aquariums will give the fish police absolute fits of hysteria. LOL
