About Yourself: I've been in the hobby for about 3 years. It got started when I was never allowed to have a legit pet and a buddy got me really into his beautiful jewel and white tail acei cichlid. We started building tanks together and after a year I did other things. Here I am and here is my little peice of heaven that I call my pets home. I also have to move frequently so the tank has never been in established for more then 8months. I will be moving again in the summer of 17 and do not look forward to putting my fish through the stress again a
