freshwater fish - herichthys cynoguttatus - texas cichlid stocking in 90 gallons tank - Texas Cichlid Herichthys Cyanoguttatum aka Jack The Mexicutioner Don't be fooled by this inoscent pose. This fish has a mean, moody, and nasty disposition similar to my girlfriend. He is around 5 inches long and is the absolute ruler of my tank for now. As he goes so does the tank, although he won't mess with my knife fish or my pleco which is a good thing : ]

freshwater fish - archocentrus nigrofasciatus - black convict cichlid stocking in 90 gallons tank - Convict Cichlid aka Lee This is my boy Lee. He will run his mouth and argue with anyone, but is quick and nibble enough to scurry away when the heat comes on.
freshwater fish - glyptoperichthys gibbiceps - sailfin pleco (l-83) stocking in 90 gallons tank - Picostumus Pleco aka Picasso This fish is almost 12 inches long and does his thing by cleaning the algae of the tank. He loves cucumbers, tends to be nocturnal and rules the night along with my knife fish. He does not mess with any of the other fishes and will not tolerate being messed with.
freshwater fish - astronotus ocellatus - tiger oscar stocking in 90 gallons tank - Tiger Oscar aka Soul Sister Little Tiger This fish does what my other 2 oscars do and follows them where they go, and is the least dominant of my 3 oscars.
freshwater fish - astronotus ocellatus - tiger oscar stocking in 90 gallons tank - Tiger Oscar aka Soul Sister Big Tiger This fish is second in the tank hierarchy and has the battle scars to prove it. She is also the leader among my 3 oscars. She leads the other oscars in unique swimming rituals. By swimming in unison up and then float down the tank. Has her own personality.
freshwater fish - nandopsis octofasciatum - jack dempsey stocking in 90 gallons tank - Jack Dempsey aka Aztec Warrior This fish is around 3 months old and is already starting to show some of his true colors. He gets challenged by some of his other tank mates thus I predict his wonderful colors will only become more pronounced as he gets older. When he is upset his colors become brighter.
freshwater fish - aequidens rivulatus - green terror stocking in 90 gallons tank - Green Terror aka Yellow Fin When I first got this fish it appeared to have gotten into some scuffles at the pet store because part of its tail fin was chewed off and had scales missing. I nursed him back to good health and vigor and has recovered as you can see. He now does a little bullying to some of his other tank mates.
freshwater fish - nandopsis octofasciatum - jack dempsey stocking in 90 gallons tank - Jack Dempsey aka Mayan Jewel This photo makes Mayan Jewel look more blue than he really is. The light reflection of the camera and aquarium made this juvenile's spackles very reflective and defined. Unfortunatley he is at the bottom of the tank hierarchy but I predict that someday he will be one of the fishes running the show.
freshwater fish - astronotus ocellatus - red oscar stocking in 90 gallons tank - Red Oscar aka Soul Sister Red. This fish is loyal and adorable. For confidence and protection she cruises around with her 2 other soul sisters and is second in command among them.
