I post about this every year because I think it’s an event that all cichlid enthusiast should attend, at least once. The annual convention of the American Cichlid Association (ACA) is this weekend in Cromwell, CT. Hosted by the New England Cichlid Association (NECA), the convention actually begins tomorrow (18th).
I have been several times. Not only is it a lot of fun, but you will meet some great people (hobbyists like yourselves) and learn some things as well. The speakers this year, as in year’s past, are outstanding. If you’re nearby and can make it, if for just a day, I highly encourage you to go. Be sure and stop by the vendor room. Lots of great folks there and lots of great deals to be had on everything from fish food to hardware to ceramic caves. The list goes on and on.
