A modern, understated hardscape design is the aquascape setting for some special cichlids of the great African rift lake Tanganyika. Lake Tanganyika, like the other African rift lakes, is a predominantly rocky underwater environment without much vegetation or plant life, so generally the cichlids that are found there are most at home within a hardscape-only aquascape design. This aquarium is about 280 gallons and measures 60in. x 36in. x 30in. This aquascape is one of several on display at the Aquarium Design Group gallery in Houston, Texas.
