Re: ACA News Jan 2010

Hi Dan, I am checking on if that is a host club rule or an ACA rule. In Chicago 2006, I know I was prompted to join one or the other to gain admittance to the show. I am not sure at the last 3 shows. I will have some clarification soon. Thanks Kyle, Basically as we discussed previously the Ohio Cich...

Re: Cichlid Conservation thru ACA CARES Program

I think there is some confusion between C.A.R.E.S. and ACA C.A.R.E.S. The ACA CARES program is specific to cichlids and is specific to ACA members earning recognition for keeping species on the list. Albeit a small program compared to the thousands of cichlid keepers out there it is an attempt at th...

Re: black firemouth???

Do you have any recent pics? It is very possibly it is a color variant that resulted from a chance breeding. I have had some over the years that were extremely blue with the red being suppressed. I like the red so I would cull the blue ones out. Hmmm... I would really like to see another pic Nate. T...

Showrooms and vendor rooms are open to public. You have to be a member to vote on People's Choice award. Matt, there is nothing that prevents any educational display from being presented. You could check with Phil about space if you have an exhibit in mind. Your ideas are great, but I have learned f...
