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.

Kevin Plazak: Plants for the Cichlid Aquarium

Please join us as Kevin Plazak gives his World Famous (probably) talk on Plants for the Cichlid Aquarium.

Kevin owns and operated the largest volume wholesale tropical fish business in Oregon, 20/20 Tropicals. He has been keeping and breeding fish since he was 18 and working in the industry since he was 20. He has a degree from CSU Sacramento in Environmental Biology. He has been published in TFH and has won many writing awards for the PCCA. He is currently the Programs Chair of the PCCA and the editor of the Cichlid Blues. When he is not working, he is at home updating his farm house that is not actually on a farm.

We look forward to seeing you there!
