You must keep South Americans? Believe it or not I started with an Oscar, had to rehome him because his tank mates were Mbuna. Very cool fish he was it was sad to see him go! I had a very rocky start into fish keeping :/ Too small of tank, wrong mix of fish, didnt know about cycling... I pulled it together tho :) I have a really awesome friend who helped me out bigtime!

very similar to how I started followed stupid advice from petsmart worker I ended up with all kinds of fish that never belonged in a 29 gallon tank. Now I actually have similar fish to yours mix of mbuna and peacocks breaking rules also i guess.

Yeah I started out with a blood parrot in a 15 gallon, I've moved up since but I keep mostly smaller central americans and then the oscar which is south american. Glad to see you're getting the hang of things though
