A healthy - and interested - adult jack Dempsey ("Cichlasoma" octofasciatum). These fish get fairly large and can be quite aggressive, but they also will interact with their owners (and that can be very rewarding).

"Although I've had a successful tank before, there are always things to learn to ensure another happy, healthy community. I'm thrilled that I found your site. I have bookmarked it and will be returning to it, many times I'm sure, when everything is in place to begin again. I like the way you present things. You put it out there...if you [want] a successful tank, there are certain things that need to be done."
