Quote: it's better then a poke in the eye
About Yourself: I purchased my tank some 12 years ago as a means of providing light to find my way in to my home after work usually late and in the dark . I started with african cicklids and 2 jack dempsy's which were supposed to be jewell cichlids . I first recieved them at about 1 1/2 " long they lived 10 years reashing a length of over 1 ' after a period of silver dollars to fill the tank I started over with a planted tank and small schooling fish
