        I already have a tank setup with cihlids actually. A group of Pelvicachromis Taeniatus "Moliwe" I'm growing out.

            My parents kept fish back in the day, and I have a few books on cichlids from the 70s or so. It's funny to see how the names have changed.

                    Thats a pretty cool find with the receipts. Mine wasn't quite so interesting. I just had to order it online from Britain.
