Last month, I had the opportunity to visit with Ted Judy at his fishroom near Madison, WI. Ted is an expert in West African cichlids and he has visited Africa to collect these interesting fish twice. Need I mention that he is a frequent speaker to aquarium clubs and a very knowledgeable hobbyist, too?

I met Ted at his beautiful home and got to see his amazing and spotless aquariums. Ted had an awesome planted tank in his living room. These always impress me as I'm pretty awful keeping plants alive. This tank was a carpet of green! Almost all of his aquariums have plants in them.

Ted is active in aquarium clubs in Milwaukee and he started one in Madison which is doing great. We got to chat about running clubs and he is very knowledgeable.

Ted keeps a variety of fish including, of course, lots of West African cichlids, but he also had a very nice selection of livebearers, too. It is always great to visit someone's fishroom because I always learn something new! For example, I found out that water hardness affects the sex ratio of some livebearers. Interesting!

Ted sells fish at very reasonable prices. I came home with Chromidotilapia kingsleyae, Pelvicachomis taeniatus "moliwe", and Limia sp. "Tiger".

Ted recently has begun selling Repashy gel foods. I've tried a couple of them and they are terrific. Even my large, predatory cichlids will eat the veggie food. I've also tried the Community Gel and my fish love it.

Ted was nice enough to donate enough samples for everyone at the last GCCA Meeting to try the food.

You can see what Ted has for sale at www.tedsfishroom.com. You'll find a lot of other great information there, too, so it's worth the click!

I've included a few pics below.

 
Most Ted's tanks have very nice plants like these two above.
