Dave Schumacher has been an avid aquarist from a young age.  Getting his first job at 16 as "the reptile guy" at a local pet store specializing in cichlids, he quickly found he enjoyed the fish even more than the lizards and turtles he'd started with.  Dave worked for Armke's Rare Aquarium Fish while in college, which was the go to source for cichlids in the hobby during the 90s and 2000s.  In 2006, he bought the company, changed the name, and moved to San Antonio, TX.  Dave has been a part of the Hill Country Cichlid Club since it was founded in 2004, and has served 2 terms as a board member and secretary of the American Cichlid Association.

if there is anything missing or questions, please contact me

One last thing.... Dave will be getting in too late to have a dinner with members on friday, but I am proposing we figure out a place and advertise having a dinner saturday with anyone interested later after the meeting.   He will be departing richmond very early sunday morning so saturday night will work out well.....  If anyone has an idea for this please let me know so we can plan accordingly.
