Acquired: Fish / pet store

I never really thought it was possible for a fish to have a personality. Usually they are considered to just swim around their tanks oblivious to the world. But in my freshwater tropical tank, my cichlids personalities really began to shine!
These beautiful fish would come close if I approached the tank, and they always seemed to be engaging in some sort of communication.
They all had their own, individual personalities - and for the first time in my life, i found myself giving names to my fish and really getting attached! They are really a great choice for someone who wants an interesting fish which is relatively easy to look after - although of course there is some maintenance of the tank and environment... they're not as easy to care for as goldfish! Also a great choice for families who have children who are constantly staring through the glass.
