I don't really want to get rid of them. I was just kidding around. But that tank is at capacity, so I won't be getting any more. The cichlids are cool. And the Honduran Red Point is my daughter's; it was her birthday present. I can't get rid of that! And I still love my loaches. But the expansion of my fish collection has certainly shifted focus. Existing tropical tanks will stay tropical, but new tanks will be native.
That's sorta how I do it, I used to have more tropicals than native but now it's the other way around. Sometimes I find a cichlid or tropical catfish that I cannot turn down however.

wally's has been part of the community for the last 50 years
its the oldest ma n' pa fish store in northern va. the good thing is
that even with pet co's and pet smarts we've still managed to
give better service than corporate pet mills. the pay isnt anything
great, but id rather have a good time, be able to do my own projects (ie native fish display)
not have someone lookin over my shoulder, have regulars that i shoot the crap
with all the time, and the super chill family owned vibe, rather than makin the 15 bucks
an hour to move dog food around and eventually hating my job.
sorry, small early morning "i hate corporate pet shops" rant
we do both marine and fresh and we're constantly making improvements to
the store to help insure that it sticks around for another 50.
speaking of, i better get goin
