It seems very friendly here so I'll stick around.
members here seem to have plenty of original Ideas which I like as I get fed up with people being sheep and following the crowd.
hopefully I will be able to help

You'll definitely like it here. The site is still young (only a few months old) but already has a decent membership. Plants take experience and new members can really benefit from the experience of enthusiasts such as yourself.

One thing for sure that you've already established is that you don't need to stick with "common" planted tank fish. Those apistos are just gorgeous in your planted tanks. I'm having a HECK of a time trying to find a breeder in my area, though!

the apistos currently have one brood about 5 weeks old and another brood which hatched out about 2 days ago If I was nearby you could have a pair.
they are also called cockatoo cichlids if that helps
