About Yourself: I never cared for fish until I was given a fish tank as a gift. I was looking for very colorful and active fish but didn't want to settle for expensive saltwater fish. With careful research of African Cichlids, I decided to try a few of them out. Ever since, I have been intrigued by there variety of colors, shapes, sizes, aggression and different personalities.
