Free blog t-shirt at OCA Extravaganza

We’re just a few days away from the start of the 25th OCA Extravaganza. As I posted earlier this month, the first three attendees of the Extravaganza who introduce themselves to me and tell me they read the blog will receive a free Cichlid Stage t-shirt, just like the one in the photo above.

Don’t miss out on a free t-shirt! You can’t buy them, so this is your best chance to get one until at least the upcoming ACA Convention in Sacramento July 2020.

Best of the Best Award

I have to give a big shout out to all of the readers of The Cichlid Stage. I found out today that the site made the 2019 Top 100 Aquarium Blogs.

Compiled by the site Contented Fish, the Top 100 is actually more inclusive than just blogs (i.e., it includes magazine sites, online retail sites). It also encompasses both fresh and salt water sites.

Here’s what they had to say about The Cichlid Stage:

This site posts some fascinating articles featuring fellow fish lovers interviewed. Worth a read.

To say I was surprised about this recognition is an understatement. However, without you the reader, this site isn’t much more than a private notebook for myself. So thank you all who take a minute or two out of your day to visit, even if it’s just one time. I really appreciate it.
