Let's not forget the two species of Etroplus which I believe are brackish water. Darn...Two sections, Brackish and Cichlids, where do you think will the people asking about Etroplus post?

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

ah kool thats the exact same footage i saw on national geographics. but as you see they did not use the word chichilid. thats the lake i was talking about. Me and my freind want to go snorkling in that lake when we get older. They call that fish the jewel of tangenica or something like that. They have this electric catfsih there and it zaps fish and eats them. very agressive catfish are. The water was soo blue and the fish were so awsome. they even had eels,snakes,and playful otters.
