Hobbies

Matthew Davidson’s Hobbies Include:

Tropical and Marine Fish:

With multiple tanks I am keeping African Cichlids to Reef aquariums. I started the hobby helping my Dad with his tanks. Back then we kept angel fish (Pterophyllum), guppies (Poecilia reticulata), and tetras, then we got our first kribensis (Pelvicachromis pulcher) and I was hooked.

I’m currently maintaining 15 tanks. 14 of these tanks are freshwater and one is a reef tank that I have been keeping since the late 1980’s.

A couple of the Discus fish I was breeding:
