Who and What is Vegas Valley Cichlids?
Hello everyone, welcome to Vegas Valley Cichlids! My name is Fred Aspengren, and I am the founder of Vegas Valley Cichlids, a place where both the hobbyist and enthusiast can find high quality home bred African Cichlids for a very low price!
I have been in the hobby for 4 years now and have enjoyed breeding and raising quality African cichlids. Originally, I owned only a 100 gallon acrylic tank that I purchased on Craigslist for $40 and stocked it up with variety of male Peacocks and Haps. Realizing how beautiful my all male show tank, I got hit with MTS (Multiple Tank Syndrome). Long story short, 4 years later I now have 20 tanks and I am currently in process of building a 12x16 shed to accommodate up to 2500g of water with 50+ tanks. Due to the limited amount of tanks and space I have, I need to re-home all of my fry for a small fee... just enough to provide for my cichlid addiction! My purpose of starting a business is not to make huge amounts of money, but to provide me with enough to continue to do what I love with my family, and that is growing and breeding cichlids! Selling my high quality cichlids to the online is just an added bonus. =)
So, if you love cichlids just as much as I do, or if you are just starting an interest and you're seeking excellent quality fish, please visit our Facebook page and see for yourself just how loved these fish are. I feed my fish high quality fish food, only NorthFin, and clean my tanks weekly to produce happy and healthy fish.
I know how discouraging it can be to find something you are interested in, but you are unsure on how to get started, so I've provided a section in my website for those who are seeking guidance on how to raise happy, healthy cichlids. Please see Cichlids 101 for more information.
