For all that say the blackbelt cichlid is King at 12inches WRONG the male Largemouth bass is a true KING at 12+ " . I'm getting a long long long long long long long long wide 46 gallon tank with tiny clear blue smooth stones for gravel and tall very wavy purpleblue tricolor plants and behind the plants will be a 5" male Largemouth bass I will add 3 pumpkinseed sunfish 2 blue botia loach catfish and 1 single 7 inch male blackbelt cichlid.

Some forums offer integrated chat. Ours does not. We would have to set up a separate chat program to do so.

While some good chat software is free, it takes time, effort and testing before we could offer it. We already have three separate membership systems on our website (Forum, Links and Classifieds) which don't talk to each other. Adding another one and supporting all of the lost password requests (4-5 per day on the Classifieds at times) is not appealing.

I am certainly concerned about the control issues which Nuth already discussed.

More importantly, however, is that supporting non-fish activities dilutes our focus. What bring us together in the GCCA is fish, and cichlids in particular. GCCA decisions always take into consideration whether an activity will support our mission statement:

The Greater Chicago Cichlid Association — GCCA — is a not-for-profit, educational organization, chartered in the state of Illinois, dedicated to the advancement and dissemination of information relating to the biology of the fishes in the family Cichlidae, with particular emphasis on maintenance and breeding in captivity.

Any activity requires alignment with the above.

I can certainly understand that many folks here would like to extend their presence to a different social arena. It's kind of natural given the time that many members expend on the forum.

I like the Sox and Cubs (I can like both because I wasn't born in Chicago), but there are other venues which are better choices than GCCA for indulging these interests.

I will discuss the Chat issue with the board, but I wouldn't expect they would support it.

how about a "enter at your own risk" type of intro u have to agree to... followed by somethign that says the views and opinions expressed in the chat room are not to be taken as a representation of the GCCA, or some other fancy legal sounding discrediting line. 


it would be nice to talk normally to some local people in real time, and not have a preschool language filter.

girl picked up at bar:  oh wow u have alot of fishies in here, arent they supposed to be gold, like goldfish...  why arent these ones gold, oh that one is so ugly, why would u have more than one tank....  (she carried on for about 10 mins).

me:  please get out of my house.

I'm with you, but we here are at the mercy of the Board. I can create any old Chat room, but If it is associated with the GCCA, it would have to be approved.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion.

I just think it should be thought about.

Lately ive been talking on Cichlid forums chat room and it would be so much better to talk to someone that you may know and live closer to you. But its cool.

You 2 have crushed my dreams and hopes lol jk jk
