About Yourself:The Archbishop Don" Magic" Juan, aka The Chairman of the Board, or just Bishop, which ever moniker you choose, there is no refuting that this man is THE true original "World Famous Player". Known, revered, and celebrated for over 35 years, Bishop has moved from cult recognition to the world stage. He's moved from the street to the front of the congregation to the center of the entertainment industry.His life path was changed dramatically in 1985 after receiving a vision from the "Most High". Bishop retired from the Pimpin Game and founded his church and community assistance program in Chicago . He soon was bequeathed by his brethren the honored title of Archbishop.. Chuuurch!
Ultimately founding and serving as the Chairman of the Board of " The World Famous Players", an organization whose membership is coveted by players and celebrities around the world, Bishop has achieved a level of fame never before realized in the game. The Players Ball, held on Bishop's birthday each year in Chicago and featured on HBO's Pimp's Up Ho's Down, has become the world's most authentic street gathering of hip-hop stars, athletes, pimps, and hustlers, spurring mainstream imitators around the world.
His pimpilicious style and his ability to bestow his wisdom upon his flock soon put him into the international spotlight, making him the envy of hip-hop moguls, Hollywood celebrities, sports figures and stalwarts of business alike. It seems that everyone in the hip-hop community wants to be down with Don Juan, but Bishop is usually seen with Snoop and MC's including Nelly, 50 Cent, Busta Rhymes, Lil John, and many more. His high profile appearances on TV, in Film, and Videos, show the ever expanding influence he is having on pop culture today. His charismatic character, style, and reputation have elevated him to icon status and his unique vocabulary; with words like "Chuuuch, Preach, and Tabanakal" have become a new lexicon of communication within the hip-hop community.
As Bishop's life has evolved the one element that has remained constant is his undeniable sense of his own style. There is absolutely no denying that the Bishop has "stone cold style" and a presence that has drawn admirers to him his entire life. This "TRU PLAYA" has had a profound influenced on urban culture from music to fashion. Everybody is writing about, singing, and talking about being a player; Bishop is "The Player", giving him a unique level of unmatched credibility. This man has never wavered or compromised on his path through life' he is indeed, an original.
The Bishop is once again "stepping his game up" with the creation of The Bishop - a lifestyle brand- reflecting the style, confidence and sexiness of The Bishop Don 'Magic" Juan. The 1st apparel collection is being strategically and selectively placed in "urban" specialty retailers across the country to overwhelming and enthusiastic response. The line draws from the Bishop's rich image library of old school photos, his words and sayings as well as his enviable dress up style. This is just the first of many product offerings being developed to take advantage of Don 'Magic' Juan's "higher than high" market presence

Description:I have 190 gallon tank that is 72x24x26 that has a 3" reveal threw the wall into the room.

I have a group of 8 moba frontosa with the largest male in the group at around 12".
About Yourself:I started this hobby a year and a half ago with two goldfish in a small tank. six months after i started i got my new tank and some cichlids and have been hooked. I think cichlids are the best fish to keep, they seem more intelligent than most other community species. and fun to watch

Quote:If your ever near Galion, Ohio visit KC's Aquaworld for the best combination of knowledge and selection of cichlids that I've found in Ohio!!!
About Yourself:More photos coming soon.... please visit again!
Fish Kept:Currently: 2 pleco. 2 featherfin synodontis. 1 male sunshine peacock, 2 female. 1 male O.B. peacock 1 female, I SRONGLY ADVISE only keep 1 auloncara male. The Alpha continually displays aggression to affirm dominance. Often the Beta male will never reach his full color potential as a result of this pressure. 1 male Cyrtocara Moori, 1 female. 1 Male Burundi Frontosa, 1 unsexed. 1 Black Calvus. 1 Yellow Calvus. 1 male Scienchromis ahli, 1 female. 1 Male labidochromis, 1 female. 1 female protomelus stevini (Taiwan reef) 1 Red top Fulleborni. and 6 Giant Danios. The Giant Danios do wonderfully in a cichlid tank. They provide a contrast between predator/ prey if you will. Even if that is not the case. Also, through my observations I believe the skiddish by nature danios allow the cichlids to relax. It's almost as if the cichlids key off of their response to danger. They also provide action at the top off the tank creating balanced levels. Cichlids mid to bottom and synodontis residing at the bottom.
Corals/Plants:5 crinum thianum. 1 Anubias flazzeli. 1 Anubias Barteri. 3 Java ferns. 2 Java Windelov. approximately 5 cups of java moss. 1 potted crypt wendtii. 5 bunches of Hornwort. All low light, high PH tolerant plants. Also, the varieties chosen are unlikely to be eaten by all but 1 of my cichlids. I do keep 1 herbivour, the fulleorini, who will at times nibble, but very little or no damage is incurred. The introduction of an abundance of Hornwort has clarified my water significantly. Of course, as with anything, read up on it prior to introducing it to your tank
Advice:I agree with everyone that states: "Get the largest tank one can afford without getting divorced." Learn as much as one can. It only enriches the experience. identification, behavioral, and dietary traits. Aquascaping is a key factor in reducing stress resulting from conspecific hostility. Also, selecting specimines from varying sub-species will avoid this potential problem. For example: Pick your favorite auloncara, pundamilla, haplochrome, Protomealus etc..
