Pinoy... Amazing collection of tanks! Looking at those pictures reminds me of building those racks, down to painting the black background on the tanks! Great setup.... Wish my garage was temperature controlled like yours, I wouldn't be paying $350$-400 a month in electricity. I'll remodel one day. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice! While I've always known a lot of the other CAs were beauties, I didn't realize umbies were as coloful as that.

With the exception of my Kapampa I've gradually made a similar transition. After years of primarily doing African cichlids I've basically gone back to my initial fishkeeping roots with new worlds, mostly SA. At one point years ago I almost got into CAs (I have kept a limited few, mainly EBJDs) when I was mesmerized by a Vieja argentea at a lfs, but I was detoured by the clerk claiming my Malawi haps and peacocks would kill the (much larger) argentea because it 'wouldn't understand their body language', something I later learned was utter nonsense... obviously.

Couple years ago I came close to doing CAs again, but was detoured again, this time by geos.

Neutrino.... if you want to add more SA's to your collection and you can dedicate a BIG tank to them... I suggest a pair of Umbee. They are amazing fish! I'll ship you as many 1" fry as you want, just pay shipping.

On a side note, if and when you want to get into CA/SA Cichlids... order from Dan at www.cichlidsoftheamericas.com. He is by far the cheapest and his shipping cost are reasonable. He's out of Florida where most of the farms are. One day I'll do a Argentea tank .... I've had several but not past 7".
