About Yourself: My name is Dan Robbins. I am a college student from Wales Uk. I have been keeping cichlids for many years and work in Maidenhead aquatics. I am an author, currently writing a book on South American cichlds. I have kept an bred a wide range of cichlids including the reasonably rare Arhocentrus Centrarchus or Flier cichlid. I try to decorate my tank in the most natural way possible and belelive strongly any fish keeper should do the same. Not only does it have a truely stunning visual appeal but is beneficial for the fish being kept.
Fish Kept: American cichlids.
Corals/Plants: Plants from the Central to Southern reaches on America.
Tank Size: 150 gallons
Advice: Research your fish before purchasing. Dont purchase on impulse and only buy from professional well reputed stores.

Advice: Do your research, start with a tank of decent size so you have a margin of error on the chemistry. Get an oversized filter and use only mechanical and biological filter media (no carbon or ammonia removers). Use a plant substrate for the tank and plant heavily from the start. Use CO2 injection, whether homemade or compressed tank. make sure you have enough light, a single bulb is not enough. Research your fish choices to ensure they will get along, not outgrow your tank and don't require special water conditions. Establish and follow a consistent schedule of water changes and fertilizer dosing. Keep notes on what you do and how well it works. You will be rewarded.
