Anyone know if there are any courses you can take on cichlidom? Like an evening course at a college or university? Something that gets pretty heavy?

Or would the closest thing be in the nature of a biology course? I would fear that getting something as specific as freshwater fish biology would be far along in a bio program, and not a general interest sort of thing.

It's always satisfying to understand things more completely, plus you'd get to share and network with people who have the same interest (the last element I guess I could get from a fish club).

Hahaha -and if I start at 33, then.....

No, I'm too old, and did my undergrad in computers. Plus there's work and life and - not so much time....

Thanks for the link though. I was thinking more like a single semester night course or something. I really think our interest here might be too specific for organized study. But maybe I'll find something.

I figured it was begining to see what was out there.
I think you may be right. I would consider books and teahcing thyself.
