    very nice! we had a pair before we moved that was breeding constantly. we had a 54 corner until recently. due to a leak we changed it up to a 95 wave.

    I can see why with his forehead out like that.
    I always wanted to raise angels but turned to salties before I ever to the step.

    An electric blue jack dempsey is our newest member of the family. With a few females on the way we're hoping for babies next year. I can't believe the color on this guy. 20150307_193552.jpg 20150307_193600.jpg

    Brings back old memories of my tropheus and petrochromis days. Loved my brichardi trophs and polyodons. The more I look at these pics, the more I want to set up a 180 breeder again.....my wife would murder me cold blood

    Brings back memories alright.. My X Fiance and I had a 72gal bowfront Cichlid tank while we were together. When we went our separate ways is when I moved over to the saltwater game. Nice tank Mrs. DSC!

    Thanks! She's a pro when it comes to the cichlids, I'll stick with my salties. I'm very lucky that my whole family can enjoy this wonderful hobby together and I'm sure our new daughter will have her own tank in a few years;)
