1. Bob Hicks, North New Jersey
2. 50+ (mostly small) tanks, wide variety of fish
3. New member, but have been planning to join for a while
4. I'd love to see some closer partnerships or joint programs between the national and local level clubs. For just one example, maybe a national level BAP recognition program that's administered by the local club BAP.

We have yet to hear from the guy with 200 tanks, the one with 600 tanks or the fellow "up north" with 16,000 gallons in his custom home. All of these examples are at the owner's residence, not their place of business. These are just folks I've spoken with, and I don't know many so there are many many more avid fish keepers out there, all of these folks are ACA members, two post here a few times a year.
Why would we NOT hear from them?
Not calling these guys out, just curious why some of the biggest have remained silent...They have huge amounts of information and experience under their belts.

Hi Friends,

I am very new to this site and will be joining the ACA very soon. Hello Everyone!! I have 5 yellow labs at this time and a large collection of sailfin mollies, catfish, plecos, and cory cats.

I am hoping to get more yellow labs, since I am concerned that the ones that I bought are probably closely related to each other. I still do not know which sexes that I have, yet. But, either way I will need more females.

I plan to start a multiple style business. So far, I have begun the tropical fish raising. I am working on creating my own color of Sailfin Mollies. (I still have a long ways to go). I am working on creating a black body with an orange head.

Hi All,

1. Matt from Morro Bay, CA

2. 4 tanks - my favorites are new world cichlids

3. ACA Member

4.A. I am a huge fan of the Buntbarsche Bulletin; therefore, I would suggest a continued focus and effort for printing high quality articles on a timely basis.

4.B. I also like the sharing fry by mail threads, weather for C.A.R.E.S. or not. Being an online club and that many cannot make it to the conventions, I believe there should be continued efforts for affordable sharing of fry amongst members through the mail.

Bill in Richmond, Va.
Back into the hobby now 13 months. After a 20 year hiatus.
10 Tanks, 700 gallons with about 300g more awaiting me to tap into my electrical service panel to provide for lighting/heating and filtration. Also will be running a hot/cold water source to my "man-cave" aka, garage. This bucket brigade process is driving me nuts!

Angels and Discus and German Blue Rams with compatible community fish. (3 pair of Angels that are steady breeders)
Not a member at this time and won't be until I start selling off some of the Angel fry. (1st batch was spawned Thanksgiving Day.. )
How to make ACA better? On my local fish club, less than a year old, I've begun posting articles I've developed thru my own research on the web. My latest is "Fry Foods" in which I write up the care/culture and benefits of Micro Worms. Next will be BBS, Vinegar Eels, etc.
I plan on selecting an advanced topic for my next thread.
I'd like to see the Beginners section expanded to provide a knowledge platform to address the most basic issues newbies face up to care and breeding of the various specie of fish that beginners normally start with.

Don, also in Richmond area.

I've been keeping tropical fish on and off 30+ years. Mostly cichlids.

I have two setups right now. A 55g and a 29g. Both planted. Apistogramma cacatuoides "double red", Keyholes and compatible tetras/cories. Nothing really exotic.

More Buntbarsche Bulletins please (ACA member).
