I like malawi fish, mostly mbuna. I like fish that have good color and swim a lot. When people come over to my house and see my hap tank, their like why aren't they swimming? My 120 mbuna show tank is the favorite tank of many friends.

I've found out by trial and error that I like Tanganyikans most.  I'd say the variety of shapes, colors & behaviors is what interests me most.  Also many of them don't get too big, so they can be kept in a modest sized tank.

Not checked for facts.

I can't name one.  I love the Cyphos and the Brichardi Complex the most, but there are some many varients of each!

If I only had 1 favorite, I wouldn't need so many tanks, and thats just no fun. I have no favorites.


couldn't have said it better myself except
if it doesn't float to the top, it's my favorite as I look at it


Word..
;D


what they all said:D

Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or hump it. Pee on it and walk away.

Way to hard of a question. I can't choose one, although here is what would qualify for the top of my list:

Amphilophus amarillo
Petenia splendida "Red Bay Snook"
Crenicichla regani (Chris, I'm loving the group)
Champsochromis caeruleus (Malawi Trout)
Neolamprologus multifasciatus
Geophagus steindachneri
Amatitlania nigrofasciatus (Gotta Have My Convicts!)
Amatitlania sp. Honduran Red Pt. (I got mine from Eric Hanneman, who got them from the original pair Rusty Wessel got)
Ctenochromis polli
Steatocranus tinanti
Apisto. cacatoides
Microgeophagus altispinosa

These are some of the fish I enjoyed keeping the most

I have a confession. I'm a cichlaholic.
