    Greetings.

    I have two hobby passions. One is keeping a species of fish called Cichlids. To this end I have over 7,000 gallons of freshwater aquariums in my home. I have had aquariums for well over thirty years. My other passion is photography...and it' mostly of my first hobby. Here's a sampling of some of the fish I keep.

    Cichlids are some neat fish - i thought of having a tank withthem but we never did - too expensive. Yours are nice and you capture them quite nicely! :D

    Heya AquaMojo, welcome to ThePhotoForum!
    These are some really wonderful photos of the fish you keep.
    I do believe that on some days your hobby has you ... to keep all these fish tanks clean and in good condition all the while! A whole lot of work. Wow.

    I am particularly taken in by the pure patterns-colours-and-light photo No. 2 here! I really really like that one!

    And in the last I seem to feel the movement of the fish swimming past. Funny effect.

    These fish are so gorgeous. I have tried to take pics of MY fish and it never works! Yours are so clear, I'm impressed.

    Beautiful! I love the detail of the scales in the second shot.

    Great pics!! I also have cichlids and have had tanks for several years. Great examples of both the fish and pictures. I really like the clarity of the shots. Great job!
