TCA will be meeting on July 25th at 6 PM this year as a service to those not able to attend the ACA National Convention in Springfield, MA.
If you have not seen John’s tank setup, you will enjoy getting a chance to look it over. As you probably know, John specializes in Discus and has an excellent hatchery.
The plan is to go out to eat after the meeting at a nearby Mexican Restaurant for everyone who is interested.
John’s address is listed two different ways (depending on the map you use):
4306 CR 2613
Caddo Mills, TX 75135
4306 CR 2613
Royse City, TX
We look forward to seeing you on the 25th.
From Dallas take I-30 east until exit 79. Exit and at the stop sign take a left. You will be on CR2642 North. After roughly 2.5 miles it will dead end into HWY 66. Take a right on 66 and go roughly 2.4 miles and take a right on CR 2613. I am the second house on the left.
From all points east….Take I-30 west until exit 85. At the stop sign take a right on FM 36. After 3 miles or so it will run in to HWY 66. At the stop sign take a left. Go roughly 2.5 miles and take a left on CR 2613. Second house on the left.
TCA has long taught that releasing our aquarium fish into natural waters is both illegal and dangerous to our waterways.
Here is an article reminding us of the major problems that can occur if even one person ignores this advice.
TCA’s monthly meeting for June will be Saturday night, June 20th starting at 4 PM at the home of Tom & Melissa Ruden. Their address is:
2676 Gardendale Dr.
Fort Worth, TX. 76120.
Tom & Melissa have a beautiful pool which will be available for anyone who wishes to swim.
The Rudens are going to provide Hamburgers, Hot dogs , the Buns , the Condiments and Ice Tea. The rest of us are asked to bring paper plates , side dishes, chips, and desserts. Please Email Mike at Aggiefishman@live.com so he can monitor the food list.
Hill Country Cichlid Club has planned a great day for Saturday, May 16, 2015 at Landa park in New Braunfels. All members of FOTAS affiliated clubs are invited. So every member of TCA is welcome and encouraged to attend this exciting event. The plan is to meet around noon at site #2 (see below).
HCCC will be providing all the food and drink needed, so all you need to do is bring yourself. Hard to beat that!!
Here is the flyer HCCC has produced.
The plan is to just hang out, maybe do a little collecting, and some of us are talking about hitting the river for a snorkel at some point. So if you want to participate in those kinds of things you will need to bring appropriate supplies, etc.
Here is the Landa Park website with the address, driving directions, etc. As mentioned above we will be meeting and grilling at site #2 which you will see on the map (see the link below) is straight across the lake from the Train Depot.
Greg has asked for an approximate count of the number from TCA who will attend. So please send Mike Johnson an e-mail at Aggiefishman@live.com by Sunday, May 10th, if you plan to attend so we can let Greg know.
Deep Sea Aquatics has once again agreed to donate a beautiful aquarium, this time a 65 gallon wood grain tank and stand, to the TCA auction.
Remember you have to be present at the end of the auction Sunday to have a chance to win. So come early (we start at 11:00 AM) and plan to stay to the end.
Here is a link to Deep Sea’s website: http://www.deepseaaquatics.net/index.php

As usual 3 different things will be taking place – somewhat simultaneously.
More specific details are below, but first I want to discuss the schedule.

Through the generosity of Texas Aquatics, The Texas Cichlid Association is hosting a swap meet on Sunday, March 22 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Texas Aquatics–6908 Baker Boulevard in Richland Hills Texas. The swap meet will take place in the front parking lot.
Those wishing to sell will need to provide their own table. Some have thought about just selling out of the back of their car/SUV/pickup. There is no charge for sellers since you are responsible for your own table.
Feel free to attend and bring snacks, drinks, etc. It would be helpful if you let Jolee know about what food items you plan to bring.
For more information keep your eye on this website for updated information, or contact:
Mike Johnson firstname.lastname@example.org;
In case of inclement weather we will move the swap meet to March 29th.
Earlier it was reported that the DFW Aquatic Plant Club would hold a meeting inside Texas Aquatics, but we have now learned they intend to have tables in the swap meet, but not actually hold a meeting.
For information about Texas Aquatics go to: www.texasaquaticsfish.com
