hi M.C

thats a awesome pic love the colours just look how he/she seems to be posing
for the shot. cichlids are very clever imo they know what they are doing and more to the point they know exactly what we are doing too.

thanx for sharing M.C.

yeah and people say that fish only have a memory span of a few seconds,

i dont think so do you munchy they know when its feeding time
when its photo time and so on i could watch mine all day and not be bored.
people that havent kept them have no idea imo.

I do think Malawi Cichlids are stunning but alas, with my soft water, I can only keep the "easy" community species of Angelfish and Rams. Wink
