I don't know why but whenever I see an African Chichlid I like shiver and tear up. Like at my local Petsmart, they have the tanks lined up on the far wall with the bettas on a seperate shelf next to it and the food and stuff on a large cart infront of them. And just my luck, the African chichlids are right next to the betta shelf so when I go to get a new betta they are always there to haunt me. I don't know what it is but when I went to my friend Sarah's house she said she had a huge 55g tank in her basement, and we went to go look at it and in it she had like four adult ones and an albino baby one. I screamed and ran up stairs.
So yeah.. What is it about them? It's just like ugh.. Their eyes and mouth and the way they swim forward like they're looking at you.. grrr..
