My name is Scott. As an amateur freshwater aquarist for two decades, I've kept many types of fish. I'm just a hobbyist whose fish keeping interests are focused on cichlids, specifically dwarf species, and I'm fortunate to have successfully bred many species, some unintentionally. Though I've kept various species of Central/South America dwarves, I'm partial to the cichlids from the Rift Lakes of Africa. I'm on municipal water, which is quite hard and alkaline, so it's naturally better suited for Africans.
Currently, I only have three show tanks operational, a 40g, 55g, and a 75g. This is my normal set-up unless I'm breeding, in which case I may have as many as six or seven tanks going.
