Though this post isn’t specific to cichlids, many cichlidophiles should find the information at least marginally useful, especially if you’re new to the hobby. Segrest Farms should be no secret to any long time tropical fish keeper. In fact, if you’ve been in the hobby for as many years as I have, you’ve undoubtedly purchased fish at your LFS that came from Segrest Farms. Segrest is wholesale only, meaning you can’t buy directly from them. However, that’s a good thing. They help keep your LFS in business.
Anyway, Segrest recently released a downloadable PDF that is crammed full of fish keeping information. Before you think, “Oh this is just a pamphlet with some general information about fishkeeping,” you might want to check it out. It’s actually a downloadable book titled Segrest Farms Aquarium Fundamentals…and it’s free. Though ONLY 57 pages, I’m certain you will find some good information in it.
