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.
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!

Advice:Fish tanks are like art,everyone has there opinion.But just try to have an original look and you will appreciate it more.Everybodys water out of the faucet is different,so find the water treatment that works best for you.PATIENCE.Fish will die in the process.It happens,just don't buy the expensive fish first.
