Hey everyone

Been lurking around a few days and thought I'd introduce myself. I'm Jim. 33 years old. Work full-time on a locked inpatient unit for people with psychosis and bipolar disorder. Also take classes with the intentions of applying to medical school. Along with other things, one of my hobbies I enjoy is fish. I hadn't had a tank since I was kid and then a good friend later on convinced me to get back into it. He has 2 6' 125's and a few smaller ones so I logically got a 4' 150. I would've loved a 6' one but don't have the space right now. In any case, I don't have any pics of my full set up right now. Lost them somehow when I had to switch phones but I have a few of individuals.

I am new to this site, and was wondering how or where to post a question. I have cichlids as well. 6 of them. They are staying hidden and acting weird, but their water seems to be okay. I moved about 4 months ago, so their tank was drained, but refilled with their same water. Before my move, they were very happy and healthy. My pleco is really behaving funny! It keeps swimming up to the top very forcefully and then darting back down to the bottom. I am just concerned that they are not happy or comfortable. Their tank had been established for almost three years. Now, they are just odd!

I really like JD's too. They're just trouble sometimes. I had to get rid of one part of a breeding pair 'cause the second time they spawned, they went psycho, ganged up on the Oscar and beat the snot outta him

Also, thank you very much for the warm welcome
