|My name is Scott Wells. As an amateur freshwater aquarist for nearly 20 years, I've kept many types of fish. I'm just a hobbyist whose fish keeping interests focus on cichlids, specifically dwarf species. Years ago, I was a moderator on a couple of online fish forums, where I helped direct traffic on mostly dwarf cichlids. Though I've kept various species of Central/South America dwarves, I'm partial to the smaller cichlids from the Rift Lakes of Africa. I'm on municipal water, which is quite hard and alkaline, so it's naturally better suited to these Africans.
Currently, I only have five show tanks operational - a 55g, 2 x 75g, a 30g, and a 40g breeder. The 40g is a non-cichlid, tropical fish tank. I also have four 20g longs running, but they're tucked away in my fishroom. I have some fry in two of them. The other two are sick/QT and segregation tanks.
