Just thought I would introduce myself. My name is Sarah Roberts and I live in Maryland :) Mostly, I keep tangs with some pleco and oddball catfish thrown in. I'm on the ACA convention committee, the CCA board and a moderator and administrator on way too many cichlid forums! I also run BAP, group buys and the box exchanges for the CCA.

Hopefully I get to chat with you guys some more!

Hi-My name is Les and I live in Wilmington IL on the banks of the beautiful Kankakee River.  I became a hobbyist when I was eleven years old.  After a year "internship" to show I was serious and capable I was given a breeding pair of Aequiden pulcher that I admired and had no reason to think would be given.  Been with cichlids ever since and went through breeding period from 1951 to 1971 where my fish room slowly grew to 18-20 tanks.  After working through the more common new world cichlids I was looking for something new and challenging and the Arfican cichlids were just showing up.  My first was H. burtoni, the rusty shouldered variety that was called H. desfontainesi at the time.  These were my first mouthbrooders.  From then on I grabbed every mbuna I could get my hands on.  I didn't have fish for a few years, mostly because I lived in N-central Arkansas where NOTHING in the hobby was available.  I moved to Wilmington and inherited a 30g which sat in my garage until Januaary 2010, when I decided to ramp up again.  I joined GCCA in January and have attended the Feb. swap, the spring auction and the May and June meetings getting to meet people.  I now have the 30 and a 55 going and am resurrecting a 29g that was just given to me.

What a great hobby. It's kind of sad though how the wild sources are being ravished by mankinds poor choices.

tanks, tanks everywhere-and nary a tank to spare!!!

Hey up there.  My name is Phil. I am a member of "The MCAA"  Music City Aquarium Association. We started out as Music City Cichlids, but wanted to be all inclusive. Hence the change. I'm married with two girls and a boy.  I used to live in Franklin Park, Way back in`88 I moved to West Tennessee with family. Bouncing from between one and up to six tanks in the last 20something years, I have finnaly (maybe) settled with a 10fry, Oceanic 33 cube, 55 (more or less the kid's community tank) and my 90. Still holding on to the dream of a 220+. Wife says "First you have to........." Then I quit listening. In the meantime, while she is at work on Saturday, I quietly work on plumming it in and braceing for support under the house. Then oneday I will call out the troops and in a mad dash dismantle the livingroom and when she comes home!!! She can move it out if she dosent like it. This does work because I still have my 90!! LOL!! I was joining up here because I do still visit from time to time. Any members in West Dundee or Romeoville? My family and I will be comming up over the 4th of July weekend and this is where we will be visiting. I keep mostly Tangs and Angels now. But I am interested in possibly bringin back some Yellow Labs or Calvus maybe? Packing some just in case stuff, Just in case!!! Anyone wanna meet for a Saturday breakfast?? If I can swing it!  Send me a pm!!
