My husband and i are into fresh water cichlids. But it wont be a shocker when we switch to salt.

We have:
yellow labs
green terrors
oscars
red devils
electric blue jack dempseys
jack dempseys
jaguars
angel fish
cherry shrimp
Frontosas


and im sure im leaving something out .. but you get the point.

We started with a 55 gal tank given to us by a friend. Now ... as you may have guessed by the list we had to expand. We now have about 30 tanks that take up our garage. Talk about a hobby gone mad.

Hey man. Thanks. I have a tank of fancy guppies that i started out with. Now i have a 55 gallon with electric blues, johanni's, electric yellows and albinos. Mbuna are the best. And a fry tank full of fry. I've had the most success with johanni's and yellows so im going to breed them more and trying to get rid of some of my stock to purchase others. Here's my CL add http://seattle.craigslist.org/tac/for/1369999043.html
