I got into cichlids several years ago and have been expanding my new hobby ever since.
I chose the name Illinois Rock because from time to time I will have a surplus of Texas Holey Rock. I usually end up selling out of it because of the price I sell it at, compared to the 6+ dollars per pound here in Illinois. It is a joy to see people aquascape their tanks and see a photo of their finished product.
I currently am running a 110g, 55g, and a 40g breeder for my turtle. Attached is a photo of my 110g.
I look forward to exploring the rest of the site!
