    Went to Busch gardens in Tampa Fl, today and thought I'd share some pictures of a 225,000 gallon hippopotamus /African cichlid habitat

    Apparently cichlids will eat algae off the hippopotamus back. Learned something today. Anyways, over 10000 cichlids in this tank

    Hippos would probably cause problems in the neighborhood TSzabo

    In California, you'd just have to call it a "hybrid" or "eco friendly" hippo and it would take them YEARS to make you get rid of it :)
