New Family Member....

Here's my new family member. I drove over to the coast to pick it up. It's a Rainbow Cichlid. Not sure on the sex, but I think it might be a male. Got it free. ;)
















Even though it is the same planet, underwater is a whole different world.

Nice fish! And well done on getting it for free - how did you mnaage that?

I also like the torpedo barb - always fancied some but don't think my tank would be big enough.

I knew somebody that was getting rid of it due to his other fish getting bigger and beating up on it. He had to move it to a 10G, and it just wasn't happy. He said if I drove over, he'd give it to me for free. ;)

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.

The Bolivian Fry are gone. They lasted longer, but then started dropping like flies. I don't understand, lol.

As far as the new guy goes, well, I think I have some of the sickest fish around, lol. My Bolivians layed eggs again, and when other Bolivians come near by, they get chased away. But when the Rainbow Cichlid comes, they move out of the way and the Rainbow fans the eggs for a while, then moves away and the Bolivians then resume the fanning, lol. STRANGE........
