New from Michigan
Hey guys, I've had a Cichlid for the past 3 years. It was given to me in a bowl (poor guy), I eventually sprung for a whopping 6 gallon tank with filer (still poor guy), but I didn't know any better and at least it was a whole lot better than a <1 gallon bowl. The guy lived to be about 7 or 8 years old, of which I had him for 3, I am glad I saved it, it was quite a fun fish.
Now I've gotten a 20 gallon tank with three really little cichlids in it, one is orange, one is a bumblebee and one is blue with green fins. I want to go back to the store to ID the other two again, or maybe you guys know.
After buying them I discovered this website and I found as I see many of you know, the pet store probably should not have let me get these fish in a 20 gallon, but oh well, they are little, so I can get away with it for now, but I'll eventually have to find a bigger tank.
Reason I joined is that I wanted to post the progress on the diy hood I am starting today, with 96 white leds (4 strips of 24). I should have it in the DIY section soon.
