Dwarf cichlids are the bee's knees imho, I would like to get some electric blue or Bolivian rams breeding pairs again but my wife banned me from keeping fish as I tend to get out of hand with things.
There's some really neat Apisto set ups and images on Pinterest.
Good luck with them, they are awesome fish and interesting to watch
Lol yes, last time I filled the garage with tank racks and was raising fry in large childrens wading pools on the back patio. Seriously addictive not to mention these dudes have that big cichlid personality in a compact size.
@Rhino1 I want to try that especially with my betta spawns during warmer weather. Plus all the extra fry means less mosquitos and also make feesung easier once you have a bunch if copepods, nematodes, and daphnia growing.
