Welcome to the website for the Pacific Coast Cichlid Association


Founded in August of 1980, the Pacific Coast Cichlid Association exists to meet the needs of the west coast cichlid hobbyist. By-Laws were constructed in 1983-1984 and the PCCA was incorporated as a non-profit corporation under the laws of the state of California on January 30, 1985. Since inception, the PCCA has grown rapidly from a local society of 20 members to one of national scope, with members all over the world.
