About Yourself: Physics major. I got into fishkeeping in 1994 with my first Shubunkin, kept in a fishbowl.
After a year i got a plexiglas aquarium (no filtration) and within days i decided to go in for a bigger plexiglas with filtration, aeration and heating.
Within a year i had upgraded to a 15-gallon glass tank, loaded with fancy goldfish (Orandas and Bubble-eyes).
I then swithced to Anabantidae. I succesfully kept Dwarf and Pearl Gouramis (Colisa Lalia and Trichogaster Leeri) for years.
In 2005 i got my present tank and have switched to keeping new-world cichlids exclusively ever since.
