dwarf cichlids). Ted’s club affiliations are the American Cichlid Association, the Madison
Area Aquatic Hobbyists and the Milwaukee Aquarium Society. Ted is a former high
school science teacher who now dabbles as a fish importer, retailer and wholesale

This talk is an overview of the genus
Pelvicachromis. All ten species of the
genus are discussed, as well as closely
related fish that are yet to be scientifically
described. The slide show includes the
presenter’s photographs of over 20 different
variants, as well as video of the amazing
behaviors of these fish. The captive
husbandry of the fish in this genus is
discussed in detail, as well as strategies for
spawning them and raising the offspring.
