  • Interests:I LIKE KEEPING ALL DIFFERENT KINDS OF CICHLIDS. CURRENTLY I OWN THREE OSCARS AND ONE GREEN TERROR. I HAD A MIDAS BUT HE WAS TOO AGRESSIVE TOWARDS SOME OF MY OTHER FISH SO I HAD TO GET RID OF HIM. I ALSO HAVE A KNIFE FISH AN AFRICAN BUTTERFLY FISH A BLACK LACE ANGEL FISH AND AN EIGHT YEAR OLD COMET.
