The Hill Country Cichlid Club (HCC) serves the I-35 corridor including Austin, San Antonio, and the rest of the Texas Hill Country. HCC is a group of cichlid hobbyists that meet monthly to share their passion and promote all things related to the family cichlidae. HCC has an active Breeder Award Program which recognizes the efforts of propagating our pets as well as an Endangered Species Program that tracks and catalogues cichlids threatened in the wild.

The HCC holds a number of auctions each year along with an annual show. Regular field and collecting trips, BBQ’s and other outings (all family oriented) provide something for everyone. World famous cichlid authorities regularly speak at club functions but it is the camaraderie of the membership that makes this organization special.
