I started with fish from Lake Malawi & now I'm mostly into tanganyikans. I'm just wondering what lake the majority of people start with.

I was originally planning on malawis but I caught tanginitis (i just made that up. Dorky, I know) :lol: I just like the tang personality. Plus, shellies rock and gobies look so cute.

Malawi first, and probably last. But I've gotten into Tangs, and will be giving them the 6 foot tank the first of the year.

I seem to need to make some sort of a major change annually. I see haps/peacocks on my horizon as well as marine! But I'm going to try to stick with 3 show tanks and rotate instead of adding more and more and more...

I think more people start with malawi because they are more availible,once their hooked they turn to the rarer fish.In my own experience and humble opinion of course. :thumb:
