Welcome to VatoElvis.com! Most of the content that was original to VatoElvis.com has been relocated to Cichlid-Forum. There you will find hundreds of articles on keeping cichlids, nearly 1,500 cichlid profiles, thousands of cichlid photographs, thousands of aquarium setups, and a very active discussion board and Trading Post.

VatoElvis.com has been greatly reduced with less but more intimate information. Within these pages, you'll discover information about my aquarium setups and can view select photographs of some of my favorite cichlids.

This is a list of cichlids I've kept or currently keep. An asterisk indicates that I've bred it.
