Ohio Cichlid Association (OCA) 25th Extravaganza

The OCA 25th has started and it is quite the event. Lots of cichlidophiles, lots of fish, lots of products, and not enough time.

I got checked in, headed to the vendor room, and ran into Morrell (Mo) Devlin in the lobby. If you don’t know Mo, you probably know his photos. See my interview with Mo from back in 2015. His fish photos are second to none. Don’t believe me? Go to his website and see for yourself.

Shortly after running into Mo, I also came across another familiar face – Sam Garcia, Jr. You might know him better as Sam Scalz, the artist.

Photo of me (l) with Sam Garcia, Jr. aka Sam Scalz. Sam and I are holding one of his original drawings.

If you’ve perused the blog, you’ll see that I interviewed Sam back in 2016. I encourage you to check out that interview and be sure to visit his Facebook page, where you can purchase his prints. Sam also sells various apparel (t-shirts, etc.), which you can purchase from here.

Anyway, gotta run. We’re just getting started up here in Ohio!
