I love cichlids due to their personalities and especially their parental behavior. I also adopted a young pair of kribensis couple months back. I made the switch from central american to african a year ago. Shell dwellers and tangs are my current interest. I have kept neolamprologus multifasciatus, altolamprologus compressiceps and calvus.

Hey discuspaul thanks for the lovely write-up on discus, which I saved and read at leisure as I'm in the process of changing over my 90g to be an Amazon Biotope and I'm toying with the idea of discus or angel fish as my main attraction.

On the heater note, nope but i do have two, one to use in any of my FO tanks if i need to treat for any disease and the second on is on the tank in my office because we always have the air condition on to full blast as it's very warm here.

Bridgetown is the capital of the island and I live actually much closer to the airport in the parish of St. Philip. If you are ever back in the island let me know, I'll take you around to some of the local fish guys and the two guys who are specifically into discus here.

cichnatic, thank you for the welcome. I assume that your name implies that you are a cichlid fanatic. I'm really into dwarf cichlids and I'm currently breeding pelvichromis pulcher both the normal and albino.

If you guys are interested you can take a look at my flikr profile to see a collection of my tanks at different times.

cichnatic Welcome to the forum GT. This is a great site and much to learn regarding planted tanks.

Hello From Barbados

Hi all,

Been browsing for a while and with so much information on here I'm still trying to get it all figured out. Just found the "Lounge an Intro" section so I'm doing just that.

I'm Gt Turbo from Barbados.

I have seven (7) tanks, (3) 10g, (3) 15g and (1) 90g.

Three (3) are currently planted, all using different methods and using much of the information I learned here. Pics can be added later.

Like most people in the hobby, I started with keeping fish and graduated to planted tanks and I have a hell of a lot left to learn.

I look forward to sharing info with all you.
