I've been keeping fish for a little more than 20 years and I've always kept large fish; cichlids mostly. In the beginning, I just wanted to keep something alive. Long story short, cichlids proved to be very easy to keep but there were so many of them to choose from; I was in love. A few years ago, I set up my first planted tank. Not having much luck with plants and cichlids in the past, I decided on peaceful community fish. To my surprise I receive just as much enjoyment from them as I did from the monsters I kept. I still have a couple of big fish; a Senegal Bichir and a Black Ghost, but my planted tank has become my favorite.
