Last week was spring break for me and I was able to come back home to Chicago. It’s always nice to be back home. One thing I like to do when I get back is take a look at the fish my dad is keeping in the fish room.
I love predatory Malawi cichlids and Buccochromis rhoadessi fits the bill. It’s a beautiful pursuit predator.
One of the most interesting species my dad is working with right now is Astatheros nourissati. These fish are super fun to watch as they are extremely active, constantly searching the substrate for food.
I recently gave my dad a large wild pair of Cryptoheros siquia which he has spawned. It’s a beautiful convict type that shows very interesting parental care.
One of my favorite fish is the Flier Cichlid, Archocentrus centrarchus.
Another very cool species back home is Caquetaia myersi. This large, predatory fish is an attractive yellow color and are an impressive sight to see hunt.
