    Awesome man! This should become a sticky or something. Very good information for someone intending to keep cichlids. Thanks for the info.

    Honestly I just skimmed thru the whole thing and Found that it was an interesting topic for your dissertation, as I am or should I rather say I was very big into Aulonacara breeds. I did my own research some time ago which is similar to the section on various breeds when I started and decided on what species to keep and breed. However most of the information if not all I am aware due to the years of keeping fish. I had a total of 20 odd tanks and a pond. I have sold most of my tanks with fish, and Now I have 4 empty tanks, 2 with 3 fish, one with baenschi's F1's and a discus tank.

    Haha ok well I'm glad I got the approval of someone with so much experience :) Did you see my video? I had 4 baenchi's, all male unfortunately, but 2 were orange and 2 were the normal yellow. I bought them as babies so I had no idea what I was getting, if I were to redo it, I would do it differently.

    Samples? Oh those pics aren't of my fish... They are just some of my favorite species. You might enjoy the video, just saying :)

    @EnvironmentalBro what did you use for your tank background? Or where did you get it?

    Hi @Ebi Omer It was just a 3D poster background which I got second hand with another tank that I bought, it is now long gone and I have no idea where to get a new one. Ask one of the sponsors.
