Profiles dedicated to long time supporter Tomas Nilsson

Tomas Nilsson from Sweden, long time sponsor of the Cichlid Room Companion, has recently passed away, as reported to me by his family, who also told me he always held this site in his heart. Starting today I have dedicated the following species profiles to his memory: Cincelichthys bocourti, Cribroheros alfari, Thorichthys aureus, Thorichthys helleri, Thorichthys maculipinnis, and Thorichthys pasionis. These profiles, as it was his wish when sponsoring them, will remain open for all to read as long as the site is under my supervision (Juan Miguel Artigas Azas)
