Yesterday, someone asked me what the most popular pet is. I answered him dog, cat and horse. This little kid looked me in the eye and said: â€œI want to have fishes.â€ I smiled, cleared my throat and answered back: â€œThereâ€™s nothing wrong if you want fishes. Fishes are unique pets and if itâ€™s okay with you, Iâ€™ll show you the biggest fish gallery in the city.â€
Suddenly, the little kid felt happy. He asked his mom to go with us. His mom stared at me and I cordially introduced myself. After a brief introduction and conversation, we went to the gallery situated near a barbecue station two meters from where we stood.
This little kid who his name is Tom bombarded me with questions â€“ which I do not expect from a little kid like him. Heâ€™s a real fish lover. He told me what he learned about African cichlid and how heâ€™s eager to have them in his aquarium. watch full movie Logan 2017Streaming and download The Hollow (2016)

Itâ€™s no longer a surprise to me why African cichlids are one of the most popular fishes by fish hobbyists. As long as there is a large aquarium (of about 36â€ by 15â€), the cichlids from the three lakes in Africa (Malawi, Victoria and Tanganyika) are the most recommended group of fishes to raise.
African cichlids are freshwater fishes. They can grow up to six inches long and depending on the genus; they can live for four years. Once a good filtration system is installed and these cichlids are well-fed, they immediately have the urge to mate and reproduce.
Thereâ€™s no need to worry what other type of fishes are compatible with African cichlids. Due to their aggressive behavior, these cichlids only stick to their own kind and the dominant males are expected to guard the territory.
It is for these reasons why various people prefer African cichlids than other class. They are colorful, fun to watch inside an aquarium, issues of compatibility is easy to understand, reproduction is quick, profitable in the market and its aggressive behavior can be controlled.
