ongoing project to chronicle my triumphs and
failures as a tropical freshwater aquarist, The
Cichlid Writer is for beginning and professional
hobbyists, and everyone in between. This portrait of
my time with the aquariums in my home is for you to
enjoy and to critically engage. My hope is to build an
original site, free of quotations from textbooks or
stolen photographs, and to promote responsibility
within an amazing and rewarding hobby.

From the home page (this
page), The Cichlid Writer branches into
several indexes listing information about aquarium inhabitants such as
fish, invertebrates (snails, crabs, etc.) and
plants. Other indexes, such as the one labeled
"Articles," contains helpful topics
tips for algae-control, articles about what fish are, how to set-up an aquarium
and to how to take it all apart.
These indexes can be explored by clicking the
buttons on the left side of each page.
the indexes about aquarium inhabitants (fish,
invertebrates and plants), a basic profile about
each inhabitant and pages related to it can be explored. In each fish profile, for example,
there are links to my experience with the fish, the
fish's basic behaviors, food preferences,
compatibility with other aquarium inhabitants,
scientific classification (taxonomy), a photo gallery, and
links to profiles on other websites.
As this site is new, it
has not been fully realized yet; meaning, there are
still holes in data and information, perhaps some
lingering bugs, and the design is not finished or is
prone to a few minor flaws.

pages and fixed some design problems (there always
seems to be design problems!). I forgot how long it
takes to add one new profile to this website. I may
have made this site too complicated... but it's all
in the interest of making things more navigable to
the use :)
some updates! Updated navigation panel with more
