Hey

I'm a newbie, in both senses. Just got a 15 gallon the other day from my friend. He put some feeder goldfish in there, but I noticed one definitely wasn't a goldfish. Turns out it was scooped from the on hold tank and is a assorted peacock cichlid. He's been living with goldfish for 6 months, but we're getting them outta there and putting in a couple kenyi's and more rocks.

I'll be around, probably asking lots of dim questions lol

even into life we come in as newbies.

Took me a while to find two good sites, and this is one of them... Would have saved a lot of hassle if I stumbled in here from the get-go.

Welcome to AA!!

Kenyis won't last long in a 15g....well one might, but the others won't. African Cichlids aren't good 15g candidates. There are other cool options though.

I picked up some equipment from a guy this afternoon. Took me in his house and showed me his set-up.... I think I lefts some puddles of drool in his basement.
