I took some time off. But, I missed it and also have questions so now I'm back! I always loved everyone's advice and the information others had to offer. I was never led astray. :sneakyhugNow I have only a Betta and stay with aquariums due to plenty of allergies. Sure I miss my old pets, but I'm saving my energy for a dog in the future (FAR future) LOL. Tomorrow I'm picking up two convict cichlids and have some questions I'm pretty sure I all ready know the answers to. Tank is all ready cycled and waiting. I've done so much reading I'm going cross eyed! I'd love to hear of the experience from those who have or have had cichlids. I'll post in the proper section tonight, as I'm off to make dinner.
