There was a need, a calling for something new, something groundbreaking. Cichlids are not your ordinary tropical fish. They are large, loud, colorful, in your face and full of personality. To be the owner and collector of cichlids says something about you, of who you are and what you stand for.... There are many of us in the York PA area and surrounding cities who have a love for cichlids.

These same people are looking for a home, a common ground, a house of our own.
The Cichlid Club of York PA is it!
