About 2022 ANGFA-NA

 The Aquatic Triple Crown!

There hasn’t been a rainbowfish convention in North America for over 24 years so it’s about time!  Rainbowfish have become much more popular since that last convention and the number of species available has quadrupled.  This is your opportunity to see and hear how some of these exciting new species were found along with breeding tips and basic overall keeping ideas for Rainbowfish.  I’ve been the ACA photographer for the winning cichlids at least six times over the years that I’ve been in the hobby and I can tell you that the ACA folks know how to have a good time.  We’ll have six talks on bows but there are lots of other opportunities to learn from other experts in killifish, livebearers, and cichlids that will also be there.  So come join the fun, find out what it means to be a true “Bowhead”!

The Louisville Tropical Fish Fancier’s Inc. and the Marriott East Hotel are proud to host the American Cichlid Association’s 50th National Convention. etc, etc.

Johannes Graf

My passion for aquariums began when, as a child, I inherited my grandfather’s aquarium after his death. The swordtails living in it were my first acquaintance with aquarium fish. To the astonishment of my parents a passion developed from it, which was interrupted only briefly by the study time and accompanied me my whole life.
