my fish tank is ugly at the moment. but its huge! we traded it for a saw bench.
Yeah, these guys are funny, if you press your finger to the tank and run it alone the outside..they all group up and chase it! We have one, named "zippy" who rides the wall bubbler up to the top, then swims back down in it..and does this over and over. He also swims laps in the tank as fast as he can! He's fun to watch.
Also cichlids arent terribly expensive, our most expensive one was around 10.00$. We have some that were as cheap as 3 bucks! So far with 14, we have invested about 80 bucks in fish. We have almost* one of every african that the store we bought from had. Ive learned so much about these damn fish, i think my family thinks im going nuts seeing as how all i talk about lately are the damn fish! haha. thats kool tho..theyre entertaining!
Let me know if you need any tips on setting up your tank!
