Hi Everyone

My names Ethan Im 15 and I come from Central Queensland, Australia (right on Australias East Coast, an hour or two drive south from the Tropic of Capricorn).  I started with fish when i was 8 or 9, with a little 10 litre tank that my parents gave me, young as i was i didnt really understand much about fish keeping and tried for a long time to keep goldfish in this rather small tank, eventually i got sick of the fish continually dying and gave it up until about 2 years ago when i got sick of the sight of the unused fish tank, so i bought a heater at the my lfs adn started off with 7 neon tetras in a 30 litre aqua one aquarium that Id got just before i gave up keeping fish, since then Ive bought assorted fish including guppies, danios, loaches, and catfish, and have successfully bred some of them (especially the guppies), then one day when i was surfing the web i came across some pictures of an electric yellow cichlid, and looked into what this beautiful fish actually was and that was how i discovered the world of cichlids.  I now have plans to set up a 4x2x2 foot tank before the end of the year so Im really looking into more specific information about cichlids and their living requirements as well as how to breed them.

In conclusion Id just like to say how helpful and informative this forum and the GCCA website has been and I would like to thank all of the creators and contributors of these sites for this.

Pedro,

Welcome.

New Life Spectrum, Dianchi, Tetracichlid, Omega 1 are all quality foods that people here feed. I'm sure that I'm also missing a few.

Ill start this thread off!

Hey~

I'm new here and wanted to introduce myself:

My name is Chris Karnuth, I’m almost 40 (39) live in Grayslake, Illinois, Raised in Glenview,  have 1 wild caught wife, 2 daughters, 2 cats, 2 dogs, yadda, yadda, yadda.....

I have been keeping cichlids for 25 years or more (LOL!) I am very glad to now see many names that are familiar to me. I started out when I was 8 with mollies, guppies and swordtails, but I don't really count that as I was not really in charge of the tank, I really got the bug when I was about 14, started out with the usual, Oscar, JD, Cons and Texas. I had 6 tanks that I thought were big at the time (55,55,38,30,29, and a 10) I gravitated to Africans (Old World) for about 10 years or so, and really liked them and esp. tangs.....I ended up back with New Worlds about a year and a half ago and now I have 8 tanks, and hope to consolidate a ill more.......I have a 220 (Ca/Sa Agressive Community) a 150 (Ca/Sa Mild Agressive Community) a 75 (Sajica, Synps, a Port, hopefully some T.aureum from Rick!) a 55 (Dwarf Crenicichla Regani) a 38 (Empty), a 30 (Empty), a 20L (Pair Cutteri) and a 10 (Fry Tank).

Some of you may know me from other boards, out of respect I will not name them, but you know where you have seen me.....I hope to be a knowledgeable addition to the site, learn some stuff,  and maybe have a laugh or 2....
