Feel free to copy any picture you want from my web site.  You can even put it onto your web site if you want to, just please don't pass it off as your own work.    All of the pictures on this site are of my fish taken by me with my camera (Sony Mavica HD-95, 2.1 megapixel or my Sony F717, 5 megapixel, or Canon Rebel XTi 400d 10.1 megapixel or Canon 7D 18 megapixel)

Cichlids from Lake Malawi

 As you can see, my interest in Lake Malawi cichlids is mostly limited to the mbuna, the small, agressive, colorful, rock-dwelling cichlids of Lake Malawi.
