    Beautiful. I still miss my old 55 gallon setup (had Africans in it). After having gone through a major hurricane though, with power out for days (weeks in some places), I'm just hesitant to ever install another tank. I would be beyond upset to lose a large tankful of beautiful fish.

    I'd rather watch an aquarium than tv though. Very calming and relaxing.

    They are cool, Darren! Do you have a shot of your whole tank? It looks like it is very well cared for in the photos.

    Cheers,

    Africans fish does look a bit like saltwater fish Thanks
    Yes very calming and relaxing to watch those gold fish swam around.

    That's why I went with the Africans Darren. I never had luck with salt water, and the Cichlids were almost as colorful and fascinating to watch.

    What was funny was when I still lived in NY, and had the setup, my cat loved for me to pull up a chair for her to sit in and watch the fish too. She never ever tried to get at them though. Just seemed to love to watch them as much as I did.
