welcome ... you've come to the right place as many of us have multiple tanks ourselves (I just recently took my 13 tanks down as I had to move to South Korea for a year).
as far as your cichlids go, most of the cichlid folks here wouldn't consider them oddballs at all ... those are our common friends I'm sure in the warmer months you should be able to find someone that could ship them your way with little trouble (not sure about the whole "Canadian" import rules and such but there are several Canadians on board here that might know. Another thing to try is see if one of the non-chain pet stores can special order for you. Most of the stores that I go into a lot I get to know the workers, especially the fish dept manager if there is one and they'll order me anything I want that's on their wholesale listings.
A conglomeration of cichlids from all over living happily in my "melting pot" of tanks.
Breeding: currently nothing ... I've just been released from my one year sentence in Korea
I'm back in the states!!!! Florida to be exact, so if your in the pan handle area hit me up
current Fry: see above
tanks: Just set up my first "fish" tank, cichlids of course 100 gal and still have the 20L planted with CRS although most of my plants didn't survive the wife's care.
thank you for the good advices.i realy appreciate it.and hope you have a good trip in south korea.whene i moved from b.c. i had to depart with all my fish and tanks and it was a sad things for me .but i started all over again.thanks for the welcom and hope to talk to you again.
