The British Cichlid Association

For every aquarium there is a Cichlid...

The British Cichlid Association (BCA), founded in the autumn of 1970 by a small group of cichlid enthusiasts, is one of the oldest national cichlid groups in existence in the UK. Its objectives are to gather, organize and promote both knowledge and interest in the captive maintenance and breeding of fishes from the family Cichlidae, particularly within the United Kingdom. Another core aim is to encourage and further the study and conservation of cichlids, both in captivity and within their natural habitats. The diversity of cichlids, their maintenance and breeding challenges and the need for cichlid conservation has kept interest in these fish healthy to this present day.
