    They look like pretty nice fish, i think chiclids are some of the nicest freshwater fish especially color wise.

    i had a red devil and my fist could almost fit into his mouth, and a gold severm of the same size, and a lot a baby parots;) , i still have a green severm that i keep with a wimpy female frontosa that doesnt want to breed, but thats another story;)

    Sara, i also use to breed convics, i love the way they protect there young

    Dave, angles are about the only fish that i havent had, dont know why, i love there pec fins, the only thing that i can think is there not as agressive as the rest of my fish, which would mean i would have to set up another tank, which i did for a breeder par of black calvus's and my pearly white calvus's (Altolamprologus calvus), which they bought my LR for my reef, hated to see them go but i didnt have the time to take care of all the tanks i had running at the time

    ok i will shut up;), had to buy a new computer so i havent been able to talk to anyone for a few days (Atholon 3200, 64 bit) this thing is fast, still have to load everything up

    have a good night/Sunday all
