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 two show tanks operational, a 55g and a 75g. I am in the process of setting up another 75g and a 40g breeder. This is my normal set-up unless I'm specifically breeding, in which case I may have three or four additional smaller tanks going.
