We are two ornamental fish hobbyists, living in the southern part of Norway.
Martin is the one who knows how to create a website. He is the brain behind all the basic structures of this site.
TomC fills the site with content. He is keeping lots of Apistogramma and Lebiasinidae (pencilfish), and
spends time in the Amazon (Peru or Colombia) almost every year, to find and document Apistogramma etc. and their habitats.
Here you will find stuff concerning
dwarf-cichlids (mostly Apistogramma), characins (mostly Lebiasinidae = pencil fish),
and a few others.
