Welcome Flukie, if you join the club we have a great traveling library. Sign it out, bring it back in one month, can't beat it. Plus, you'll get to talk to a lot of great people about Cichlids. Meeting are every second Sunday @ 7:00 PM, mostly, check the event calendar. We have a small auction at the end of every meeting.
The drive is not bad at that time, I come from the Kankakee area.

kegger-i have a sig. other that lets me do whatever when it comes to animals(thus I have a 170lb "puppy") so I think I am in huge trouble!!!LOL


no problem, sounds like your next tank should be about a 300 gallon but make sure it's an 8 footer (the pup will still need the exercise room) ;D

wilpir-Flukie is actually a joke that got started amoungst my friends a long time ago about Flukie Stokes(Famous Chicago Gangster)!!!

kegger-i have a sig. other that lets me do whatever when it comes to animals(thus I have a 170lb "puppy") so I think I am in huge trouble!!!LOL

And let me just ask this ....Does anyone have any particular books that they would recommend for newbies???  I have found a great deal of info through this site as well as a few others, but I don't have internet acces at work and to trying to go through everything in here on a blackberry is a drag. Plus I think I went crosseyed at about 7 this morning(not bad considering I spent the night reading old threads on a 2.5' screen!!!LOL)

Hello everyone!!!

My name is John and I am from the Plainfield/Joliet area.  I am relative new to the fish kingdom , but am quickly becoming addicted.  I started with a 10 gallon tank with a few guppies and the like about 2 years ago.  Recently, I upgraded my community tank to a 46 gallon that is home to glassfish, mollies, chinese algae eaters, a few pictus cats(rescued from a foolish friend that put them in with red devils and blood parrots) and my favorite in the tank my little "mini crab". 

Well, as all of you have felt this too, I have just purchased another tank(50G) that I fully intend on doing right with Malawis.  This is what brings me to the GCCA world....looking for experienced people with the desire to share what they have learned!!!
