About the Author

My name is Sam Borstein. I'm 18 years old and currently maintain 10 fishtanks, the largest being a 110-gallon tank.  I'm a member of the Greater Chicago Cichlid Association (GCCA), and have currently bred 87 species of Cichlids for our BAP (Breeders Award Program). To learn about the cichlids I have experience with and information on how to keep and breed them, look at the species profile section. Not all the species I have bred are there yet, but will be soon.
