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).

"Thanks a lot for your help and advise... You have a great website and you responded so quickly... Thanks again... I really wish I would have cycled my tank [with your] method instead of the way I've been doing it!!"

"Too much conflicting advice out there when I just surf for answers -- but you seem to be a true 'expert.' THANKS!!"
