THE NEXT
AUCTION ON OCT 23, 2016
NEW START TIME 11:00 CHECK IN 10:00
For more than 50 years I have had the pleasure of having at least 1 tank of
fish to enjoy and look after. As with may hobbyist I was keeping cichlids
before I was aware that such things as cichlids existed. These were the
ubiquitous angels, kribs, and convicts. By the time I had left formal
education I had moved in to Discus. I enjoyed great success until I started
reading the wide range of books giving advice on the maintenance and
breeding of these wonderful creatures. About this time I ventured in to
searching out cichlids of all types and environments.. This led to adventures
in acquiring new and wondrous species

Eventually I got more deeply involved with the cichlid clubs in the UK, and
served a number of years in the role of Cichlidae Editor, then Technical
Editor, and finally a stint as Chairman of the British Cichlid Association.
Then one year, 1996, I came over to America and fell in rapture of the ACA.
And, most years I have been able to attend their Convention. I became such
a frequent attendee that I was elected to serve a term on the Board of
Trustees..

The next progression of my hobby, after becoming a club member then a
writer for the clubs, and active participant of Committees/Boards was to
move to collecting fish from the wild. I have been fortunate to collect 3 times
in Uruguay, and more times than I can recall in Mexico. Each trip has been
an adventure, and made more enjoyable by the friends that I have made on
each occasion.
