Pam Chin - Lake Tanganyika Cichlids

At our meeting on February 16, we'll be showing a video of Pam Chin's talk on some of her favorite cichlids. From:

"Pam Chin is an Honorary Life Member of the Pacific Coast Cichlid Association (PCCA) and past editor of the PCCA’s award winning publication; Cichlidae Communique. She has published many articles in Buntbarsche Bulletin, Cichlid News, and aquarium societies from Australia to Sweden. She has received numerous writing awards from the American Cichlid Association (ACA) and the Federation of American Aquarium Societies (FAAS), including “Best Continuing Column” and “Author of the Year.” A long time member of the ACA, she has served many roles including on the Board of Trustees and was named an ACA Fellow in 2011, which is ACA’s highest honor. She is a founding member of “Babes in the Cichlid Hobby,” which as the name suggests, is an all female group whose members raise money for cichlid research and conservation. In addition, she occasionally gives talks at cichlid clubs around the country, where she shares her knowledge from years of breeding and raising cichlids. Pam is recognized in the hobby as an expert on African cichlids and, along with husband Gary, she currently maintains over 150 tanks of Old and New World cichlids in their customized fish house. In addition, she has traveled around the world to observe and collect cichlids in their natural habitat."
