I never intended to sell any fish, but I traded off fry here and there to get different species and soon I had requests for more...and more, good fish sell themselves. I am retired military (Army) and disabled it fish were a hobby to keep busy it went from there.....I am somewhat known in some small circles of breeders. I am currently writing a book on the care of Tanganyikans as most of the current books are quite old and wildly contradictory. My pictures have appeared in several magazines and websites. The store should be up in February.

that sounds fantastic :) We really need more books, and better books, on the care of these fish - there really isn't all that much, and as you say, contradictory really is the name of the game.

Will you stick with Tanganyikans and victorians, or do you still have plans to expand?

:ohmy: Now that is to cool !!! and I love how you kind of fell into being as good as you are!!

writing a book that is also to cool!! I wish you best of luck with that I have no doubt you will do well! I just got to listen to Ad Konings talk about Tanganyika and his travels there it was really cool!

I do think we have a great community here but I also think that we could do with a few more breeder/ sellers on here that have some kind of a name to drop in every now and again so that is really cool give another aspect to the hobby for us !

Cant wait to see it in Feb I am anxious! and also thats even cooler you have been published. glad your retirement has been filed with a great hobby !

All the rift lake cichlids are my special favorites but there is only so much space, so I will stick mainly withe the tanganyikans and to a lesser extent with a few of my preferred Victorians. ;)

I hear you on the 'only so much space'.

In the end, I think, each person's heart finds it's favourite rift lake, and for ever more, those fish will have a special enchantment for you.
