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.

March 8th, 2014 Meeting: Brian Downing – Central American Cichlids
Brian has been keeping tropical fish and specifically cichlids for more than 40 years. He was president of the COAST fish club in Costa Mesa for three years. Currently residing in San Diego he has a fish house with more than 35 aquariums full of cichlids including some new additions he collected in Peru, but that’s a talk for another day!
Specializing in Central American Cichlids for more than 20 years, he has had the opportunity to not only keep and breed many species but has also been able to observe and collect them in the rivers and streams of Central American. Current breeding cichlids include Centrarcus, Friedrichsthalii, several Cryptoheros species, and hopefully Robertsoni soon!
Join us on January 11th, 2014, Harry’s Hoffbrau, 390 Saratoga Avenue, San Jose, CA 95129.
