    I'm Jason Corfman. I'm a rather small aquarist compared to most in the club (my wife and I currently only have four active tanks, ranging from 2 to 29 gallons), but we've enjoyed being in the club. Unfortunately, we weren't able to make it to Sunday's auction (well, we could have made it I suppose, but it would have been at least 2 p.m. before we got there, probably closer to 2:30 or 3, so we decided to skip it this time).

    I'll re-post my introduction, since it doesn't seem to be on here anymore.

    My name is Jason Corfman. My wife and I have been keeping aquariums since the summer of 2004(?), although our interest has waxed and waned over the years (but has grown since we joined the CCAC nearly two years ago). We currently "only" have four tanks running (a two gallon, two 20 gallons and a 29 gallon). At our height, we had six tanks, although I think we actually have more fish now than we did then (at the time, it was one 29, one 20, two 10s and two 2s).

    We currently have one betta, two angelfish, three cories, and an unknown number of both platies and Girardinus metallicus (it is kinda hard for us to count them). In the past, we have also had zebra danios, pearl danios, guppies, and a dwarf gourami. Oh, and a rescue goldfish, which I don't think we rescued in time. A gallery of some of our past fish can be found here, although only one of the fish pictured is still alive (I really need to update the gallery).

    Hello everyone. Sam Johnson here. I have been a member of the CCAC for just about a year. In that time, I have learned a lot about our hobby, met some great people, and have become addicted to keeping fish in my home. I only have four tanks, at this point. I have thoughts/plans for a fifth tank. However, that one is going to be very expensive and large. It isn't going to happen for quite some time.

    Howdy, Mark Huffman is my name, I have only been a member for a short time but it is good to get to know other Fishy people. I haven't been doing the fish thing long, but I don't do anything Half-Ass!!!! I am focusing on African Cichlids and have a good collection going on. I have 15 tanks and I am out of room but 15 is a good number and I am on top of the cleaning and water changes. I am always interested in new fish. ( as in ones I don't have) Peacocks, Aulonocara and Haplochromis.

    Name is Todd Leising. I keep mostly cichlids from Lake Tanganyika. I also keep a few livebearers and South American cichlids in an attempt to complete my BAP goals. It is great to see the forum come back for the CCAC.
    Tanganyikans Rule! Currently keeding sandsifters, featherfins, cyprichromis, lamprologus, tropheus, and other Tanganyikan oddities.

    Jim Erickson here. Primarily interested in and keep Tangs. Currently I have a 75 gallon Tang. community tank (cyps, enants, pair of julies, couple of calvus, and some synodontis) in my office and 5 smaller tanks (10 - 30 gallons each) at home. I have been to a couple of auctions, but have not made it to any meetings (3 teen boys keep me more than a little busy). Current plan is to clear out my smaller tanks and get a 6-8 foot tank for a show tank at home, which will be another Tang tank. Not sure of how I will stock that.....my plans for it changes pretty much every day....

    Hey CCAC, Justin Burton here... I have been part of the club since last Aug., I have been keeping and breeding fish for over 7 years.. I have 36 tanks up and running right now and have 15 more more to add one of these days... I have kept various cichlids over the years but here lately I have been into Corydoras Catfish, Plecostomus ( mainly Ancistrus sp and some hypancistrus sp) have all ways kept livebearers.

  24. #24
    Blonde moment. I kept Cichlids a few years ago. Josh and I were married last May about the time we got our first tank. His first ever. We can't agree on what fish to keep so our 1 became 38. We down sized for a short time and are back to 27. We have SA/CA and all 3 African lakes. Our new adventure is planted going well so far.

    My name is Chris Griffith, and I am a Tanganyikan cichlid keeper here in Indianapolis. I have been in the hobby for around 11yrs. I started in Malawi cichlids and will probably be placing them in some of my tanks once again. It is nice to see a forum for the CCAC.

    Nancy Amos, not a new member per say, am an old member that ran out of time. I live in Forest, southwest of Kokomo (hopefully someone remembers, LOL) I started working nights and couldn't get to anything. Still work nights and still won't be able to get to anything. ~sighs~ Did everything in the old forums get 'killed off'? I have a new (used) 75g tank I plan to set up when I have time, will have to take a vacation to do so however. It's difficult to take a vacation in my line of work, hate to have my clients have to have a new person as routine is comforting and keeps everyone on an even keel (so to speak). I work with 2 special needs gentlemen who live in side by side apts.

    I currently have angels (whom still don't breed), upsidedown catfish and some gold tetras. I also have a smallish tank of cherry shrimp. So not one of your larger fish keepers. But still in the hobby.

    Jason stephens here. I have been keeping fish on and off for around 25 years. I am currently running a 55 gallon and starting with african cichlids. My wife is running a 75 gallon with angels. I like the forum and we plan on joining the ccac soon.

    Rebecca Lindberg, I was that new girl at the August meeting (this Thursday). I only have two tanks set up right now but am working on a third... I have on 20H with a handful of SA fish and plants (bloodfin tetras, one female Nannacara anomala, and ottos); a 10-gallon with a pair of Pelvicachromis taeniatus "moliwe" who will be going into the new 20H I am setting up once it's cycled, and the 10 will then become a quarantine/breeding/growout tank, hopefully.

    Unfortunately I've already filled my apartment's maximum for 20+ gallon size tanks, so I guess any future expansion will require finding room for more smaller tanks... at least while I live here. Fortunately I like small fish.

    I have male anomala if you are interested. I keep mostly 20 gallon tanks and work with smaller SA cichlids and westies.

    I am very interested It will have to wait until the other 20 is set up and everything is shifted around though.

    About a month ago I noticed the tank was becoming overrun with algae and it took me a while to figure out why - turned out my anomala had eaten all the pond snails that had been keeping it down!

    Welcome Rebecca! Sounds like you're working on some cool stuff. There are a lot of people in the club that keep small fish. In fact, that seems to be the norm.

    I'm Katie Kogler in Bloomington, IN. I'm from Baton Rouge, LA though. As a kid, I used to catch all kinds of fish, shrimp, turtles, and bugs out of my parents' pond. Now I'm an environmental management grad. I know a lot about snakes and bugs, so feel free to ask me if you have any questions about those!

    In my tanks:

    1 betta
    red cherry shrimp
    1 otocinclus
    galaxy rasboras

    Welcome Katie. Sounds like you'd be a good person to bring along if we ever organize a collecting trip. Are your galaxy rasboras spawning? I had some a few years ago and spawned them but then sold almost all them. They're a great little fish.

    Thanks ya'll That's cool, Ceichrodt; you missed a big one, though it didn't hurt Baton Rouge too, too bad. A collecting trip, Kilroy? Have you done that before and where at? Florida is the closest place I know of with neat small fish....the sailfin molly and bluefin killifish are really pretty, but I don't know if they are protected.
