Caroline Estes, owner of Amazonia Aquariums in Austin, has been named a fellow of the American Cichlid Association.

The title is the highest honor granted by the association. The board of trustees awards the title to members who have provided outstanding service to the association. Fellows are awarded with a lifetime membership.

Estes, a member of the ACA for 24 years, said she was honored to be named an American Cichlid Association fellow.

“The other fellows are the people I admire most in the fish hobby, and I have grown up with them as my idols,” Estes said. “To be named as a peer to them just takes my breath away.”

Estes is credited with raising more than $70,000 for rare fish conservation and research. She said she has long been active in the local aquarium societies and founded the now-defunct Capitol Aquarium Society in Austin in 1987.

Estes opened Amazonia Aquariums in 1992. The full-service store offers freshwater and saltwater fish, tanks, aquarium equipment and maintenance.
