Hi, well first of all, I must say that I'm a young teenage girl so I don't have much experience but I'm new to this forum and I joined so I would always have somewhere to go if there was a problem with my fish. But so far all has gone well.
I have one female Jack Dempsey named Saturn who I raised from a 1 1/2 inch and now she is a thriving 6 inch monster.
I also have two Convict Cichlids named Corduroy and Marzipan who are approx. 3 inches long who I used as dither fish for Saturn when she got lonely.
They live in a 30 gallon tank at the moment but I will be moving them into a 55 gallon soon when I move out of my current house.
I'm really looking forward to investigating all of the threads on this forum
