About Yourself: I ACTUALLY STARTED THIS THROUGH MY WIFE, SHE HAD GUPPIES, AND PLATYS. I STARTED THE SEMI AGRESSIVE AND FROM THERE WENT TO CICHLIDS AND THAT WILL BE ALL I EVER OWN. I WORK FOR FRESHPOINT (A PRODUCE SUPPLIER OWNED BY SYSCO FOODS) AS A NIGHT SHIPPING SUPERVISOR. 3 YEARS ON THE JOB. I ALSO BUILD STANDS AND CANOPIES AS A SIDE BUSINESS AND I LOVE THE HOBBY. I ALSO BUILD ALL MY SET UPS.
