    @Maria Thanks!! :D
    I'm going to post them up soon. At the moment I only have two tanks running, a 6ft community tank and a 5ft at work which has some Shibunkin goldfish which I am growing out for a friend who had babies in his pond but I think they've reached a good size so will be returning them soon. I am not really sure what I am going to stock in the tank thereafter.

    Number of Years in Hobby...most of my life, 30 years

    Fishkeeping Profile...Currently African and South American Cichlids, but I've had everything from Discus to Livebearers to Guarami's to Goldfish with all sorts of cat fish varieties in between. I currently have a 6 foot tank and I'm hoping to go bigger soon.

    Favourite fish species... So many varieties are beautiful and have great characters, difficult to say. I love brightly coloured fishes or those with personalities.

    Favourite LFS...Reptilians, Interpet, Fantasea Aquatics, Aqua Empire, Monkey Fountain.

    Aquatic Likes...They are more entertaining to watch than TV, and so peaceful.

    Aquatic Dislikes...Tank Maintenance and having to be hyper vigilant when a tank cycles due to Eskom or a faulty filter

    Aquatic Achievements...I love it every time any of my fishes have babies

    Non-fish related fact...I breed exotic ducks, rare coloured pet chickens and white fantail pigeons.

    Other Hobbies...Art and adult colouring in, interior design.

    As for a photo, these guys are wearing prettier make up than I am right now...

    Hi @TheJuggler ,

    Welcome to the forum and thank you for the introduction

    I love Oscars and must admit that although I have never been big into African cichlids, I have a soft spot for Frontosa

    Hope you enjoy the forum and look forward to some pictures of your setups
