Quote: "Bigger is Better! (and much easier)"
About Yourself: I’ve kept fish for about 20 years. Like most people, I started with a small 20 gallon tank. Then I upgraded to a 55 Gallon. Then I upgraded again to two 55 gallon corner tanks. A couple of years ago I bought my current 150 Gallon Tank. I love fish! If you are on this site, I bet you can relate! I love an aquarium that is unique. So, rather than the “Cookie Cutter” decorations available at the local pet store. So, it brought out my creativity with my functional DIY Tank that has tons of the hiding places that Cichlids love!
Fish Kept: Community Tank 50+ Total Fish... (1) Red Empress, (6) Peacock Cichlids (2 Hansbaenschi, 1 Steveni, 1 Stuartgranti , 1Stuargranti 1 Jacobreibergi , (1) Fontosa, (1) Demasoni, (1) Texas Cichlid, (2) Firemouth Cichlids, (1) Discus Cichlid, (2) Parrot Cichlids, (1) Nyererei ,(1) Caeruleus Cichlid, (1) Pyrsonotos (4) Convict Cichlids), (1) Ornatus Cichlid (5) Misc.

Advice: Do your homework, learn as much as you can, then, put that knowledge into practice. Also, larger tanks are, in many ways, easier. The filtration is key, so get the biggest, most powerful system your tank can handle. Really understand water quality it will make all the difference!

Quote: It's a hobby....not an addiction!
About Yourself: 30 plus years ago when I first started, there were not sumps. It was all about water changes and undergravel filters. Today with improved filtration it has made the hobby so much easier to keep fish longterm. We started with a 20 gallon, and my wife got on board (amen) and now we currently have the first 20, a 55 gallon featherfin tank, the 100 gallon mixed cichlid. And for Christmas we are setting up the 300 gallon Tanganyikan tank. We'll add pics of that later!!!!
Fish Kept: Currently stocked with both Malawi and Tanganyikan Cichlids Juveniles. We are in the process of setting up a 300 gallon Tanganyikan tank and plan to split them as soon as we can. Though in the wild, these fish would no be found together they also wouldn't be found with a heater, plastic plants and food everyday! Remember, this is a hobby. We are doing the best we can to replicate the wild but there is no substitute for the wild.
Corals/Plants: none
Tank Size: 100 gallons
Advice: With the World Wide Web available to you, there is no reason you can't find any answer someplace on the web. Ask questions, and learn. Water changes should be your best friend...I do a 20% water change every week and my fish are happy healthy and growing!
