About me

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, and I'm fortunate to have successfully bred many species. Though I've kept various species of Central/South America dwarves, I'm partial to the 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, 30g, and a 40g breeder. The 40g is a non-cichlid tropical fish tank. This is my normal set-up unless I'm specifically breeding, in which case I may have three or four additional smaller tanks going.
