Vermont Author and Tropical Fish Breeder to Speak in Pittsford

The Otter Valley Aquarium Society invites you to join us on Tuesday March 11th for a presentation by Ann Whitman of Burlington, Vermont on “Breeding and Rearing Angelfish in the Home Aquarium.” The talk will be presented at 7:00 pm at the regular meeting of the OVAS at the Maclure Public Library on US Rte. 7 in Pittsford. This event is free and open to the public. The Maclure Public Library is ada accessible.

If you have ever had these beautiful fish pair up and lay eggs in your tank at home you know how exciting it is to anticipate the hatching of the fry (newly hatched young). “Angels are relatively simple to breed, as are many other cichlids,” says Ms. Whitman, “but everyone seems to have their own methods for rearing the young.”

Few tropical fish species offer as much genetic diversity as angelfish. Their colors and patterns continue to evolve from generation to generation, which makes this fish even more fascinating to breed and raise. Guessing the results of each pairing can be challenging, but in this presentation Ms. Whitman will share an on-line genetics calculator that reduces the mystery. Ann will cover all of the basics of preparing the home tank environment to induce breeding by Angelfish, as well as share photos of her fish, speak of her many fish room experiences, and encourage a conversation about raising and keeping this ever-popular species.

Ms. Whitman has had a passion for tropical fish and aquatic plants since childhood. She managed the fish department for The Pet Menagerie in South Burlington for seven years where she enjoyed teaching new hobbyists about fish keeping, as well as sharing the latest information and newly available fish with other enthusiasts. Ann has successfully kept and bred many, many fish species over the years. Her current focus is breeding angelfish, which have completely taken over her fish room and all of her spare time. She is a professional horticulturist, speaker and writer, and the author of four books, including Organic Gardening for Dummies. When she's not fussing with fish and working in her gardens, Ann is a technical writer at Gardener's Supply Company in Burlington, VT.

The Otter Valley Aquarium Society is a group of local tropical fish enthusiasts who meet monthly in Pittsford to hear local, regional, and national speakers, and to share their own experiences in the hobby. We welcome those new to the hobby and are always eager to answer questions and share our experiences.

For more information about this event or about the Otter Valley Aquarium Society contact Bob Hooker at 802-483-6739.

The Missouri Aquarium Society, Inc. is proud to announce that we will be hosting the Aquatic Gardeners Association 2012 Convention right here in St. Louis on November 1 - 4, 2012.
The convention will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel St. Louis Airport. See the link to the right to reserve a room. There is a free 24-hour shuttle from the airport to the hotel.
We'll have a great lineup of speakers--Prof. Niels Jacobsen of the University of Copenhagen in Denmark, eminent authority on Cryptocoryne species, will be the keynote speaker. Also featured will be Kris Weinhold, Brandon McLane of Florida Aquatic Nurseries, Tom Barr, and MORE! Speaker talks and bios coming soon!
This year we're going to have a Live Aquascaping Workshop. Under the guidance of a mentor, you can create your own nano aquascape to take home with you. Includes tank, all equipment, hardscape, and plants. (We're still negotiating the final price on this event, so stay tuned.)
Also new this year will be a Photo Contest - "Planted Tanks, Plants and Blooms". Winner announced and prize awarded at the Saturday Banquet.
For the first time ever, we've got two days of Field Trips. Come a day early and join us for the Thursday Field Trip to the St. Louis Zoo and nearby St. Louis Art Museum. At the zoo, we are trying to make arrangements for a free "behind the scenes" tour with a zoo employee who is a member of MASI. The Art Museum tour will be led by a docent who will focus on aquatic plant themes and fish/wildlife.
Thursday night, everyone is invited to a locally-sourced wine-and-cheese reception down the street from the hotel at Jerry Jost's business, Jost Chemical, including a tour of his spectacular fish room/laboratory with twin 90-gallon tanks that alone are worth the trip.
Friday's Field Trip will be to the fabulous Missouri Botanical Garden. Transportation and basic entry fees are included for both Field Trips. Lunch is on your own, but there are plenty of places to choose from.
Friday, November 2th, the presentations will begin in the evening and continue through Saturday afternoon. Saturday night's banquet will feature Niels Jacobsen speaking on his "Wanderings in the Great Forests of SE Asia," and of course the 2012 AGA Aquascaping Contest Winners!
And finally on Sunday November 4th, there is a huge all-day Plant Auction. This is certainly the biggest and best plant auction in the US, with plenty of options for the beginner and advanced hobbyist.
There will also be vendors, raffles, t-shirts, etc.

CA USA The PCCA:

Jan 2011 Speaker : The Pacific Coast Cichlid Association is proud to announce Mr. Spencer Jack
,Winnipeg, Canada, as our speaker on Jan 08, 2011.

Mr. Spencer Jack has been active within the aquaria hobby since the age of five. A true "cichlidiot", he
had worked exclusively with cichlids for over twenty years. He has since expanded his horizons to include
all types of tropical fish.

Mr. Spencer Jack has been an active hobbyist within Winnipeg for a number of years. Some of his roles
within the fish hobbyist community include:
* Co-founder of the Aquarium Society of Winnipeg (1989)
* Founder and President of the Canadian Cichlid Association (2000)

He now owns and operates a tropical fish wholesale business, The aFISHionados, and is still an avid
fishkeeper and breeder.

Mr. Spencer Jack's enthusiasm, humour and dedication towards the aquarium hobby is easily witnessed
through his lectures. All of his lectures are full multimedia presentations using PowerPoint, and almost all
of the pictures in use are original pictures taken by him during his years in the hobby and travels across
North, South, and Central America.Mr. Spencer jack is a part of the American Cichlid Association
speakers program.

"The Gymnogeophagus of Uruguay,"like their Rift Lake cichlid counterparts the Gymnogeophagus
species here almost all express a wide range of geographical variation and a fantastic kaleidoscope
of colour varieties. This presentation will give a closer look at just the members of this genus from the
country, many of which have never been imported for the hobby before.

Join us on Jan 8, 2011, at great new location,390 Saratoga Avenue, San Jose, CA 95129.

PA USA ACLC March Meeting
Saturday, March 19th @ That Fish Place in Lancaster PA
“Freshwater Invertebrates: Myths & Misconceptions ” by Rachel O'Leary

This presentation will largely be about some of the biggest myths about invertebrates as well as appropriate tank setup and overviews of several of the most common encountered species. Further information will include successful tankmates, sexing, hybridization risks, and algae eating capabilities.

Rachel O’Leary of Mount Wolf, Pennsylvania has been in the hobby since childhood but has gotten increasingly active in the past decade. She is currently operating over sixty tanks with interests that range from micro to monster. She has a special focus on dwarf freshwater invertebrates including snails, shrimp, crayfish, and aquatic crabs.

She is currently breeding Apistogramma, catfish, shrimp, snails, Pseudomugil rainbows, dwarf crayfish, plecos, and several other central and south American cichlids as well as a range of livebearers and egg scatterers. Her tanks range in size from ten gallon to 220 gallon.

Rachel is an active member and on the board of the Capital Cichlid Association as well as a global moderator on Aquaria Central and a moderator at MonsterFishKeepers. She actively attends conventions and travels to speak at clubs on her invertebrate and micro fish interests.

She imports from around the globe to redistribute and help share with hobbyists around the country.

An aquarist for more than half a century, David is the author of numerous books and
articles, mostly about tropical fish. Working at TFH Publications for more than a decade,

aquatics books. He has taken on the personal mission of making it easier for new

fascinating.

work, but who also has a deep, intrinsic understanding of nature, aquariums, and the
people (us!) who make up our hobby. A kind, warm, and caring individual, he is always
open to your questions and dialogue. David is an icon of the aquarium world, and a
treasure to all who know him. David lives on a farm in New York State with his family
and over a dozen aquariums.

NV USA The North American Native Fishes Association (NANFA) and the Desert Springs Action Committee invites you to attend the 2010 NANFA Convention to be held at the amazing desert springs of Ash Meadows and other locations in southern Nevada. The deserts of North America provide a very exceptional setting to hold our convention. This harsh environment is hardly a place you would expect to find teeming with native fishes! But despite the contradictory term "desert fishes", if water is present, then fish can and will usually be found too! We hope that you will join us for what promises to be an interesting, educational, fun, and especially unique convention. And, if your family doesn't share your interest in desert springs and fishes, then leave them in Las Vegas while you watch pupfish swim in the sun.   green diamond   green diamond 2010-06-20 10:26:07

MO USA The monthly meeting will be Thursday, Oct. 21st, 2010, at 7:30, at the Dorsett Village Baptist Church, off McKelvey Rd., in Maryland Heights. MASI is open to all a”fish”ionados, whether experienced or beginner, fresh water or salt. This month’s guest speaker is Lawrence Kent. Lawrence works on hunger and poverty alleviation issues for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in Seattle, a job that involves frequent travel to Africa and Asia. During these trips, he tries to find time to look for tropical birds and fish, particularly cichlids. Lawrence has lived in ten countries and worked in another 40 (including 25 in Africa). From 1992 to 1997 he lived in St. Louis and says it was his favorite of all places to call home, because of its good, friendly people, wonderful aquarium society, and spacious basements, perfect for housing dozens of tanks containing tropical fish and reptiles.

“Through this presentation, I'll share with you stories of my flash visits to the Kenyan, Ugandan, and Tanzanian shores of Lake Victoria to catch and study some of its indigenous Haplochromine cichlids. I'll discuss the challenges associated with identifying the hundreds of species in that big lake and seek your input in trying to figure out which ones are which”.

There will be attendance prizes and a raffle of a Brine Shrimp Hatchery Dish along with eggs. Also a bowl show - this month, aquatic plants

Hope to see you there!!!

18 MASI November Meeting w/Rusty Wessel
Scott Bush
314-486-8872
MO USA The monthly meeting will be Thursday, Nov. 18th, 2010, at 7:30, at the Dorsett Village Baptist Church, off McKelvey Rd., in Maryland Heights. MASI is open to all a”fish”ionados, whether experienced or beginner, fresh water or salt. This month’s guest speaker is Rusty Wessel. Rusty maintains over 8000 gallons of freshwater aquariums in a state of the art fish house constructed specifically for fish. The 90 plus aquariums predominantly contain cichlids and livebearers, which he successfully raise and breeds. Rusty's specialty is Central American fishes. He has taken his hobby to a point where he has successfully collected fish from the countries of Africa, Belize, Costa Rica, Cuba, Guatemala, Honduras, Panama and Mexico, from 1983 to the present, for over 100 trips to this date. Considered by many to be the ultimate collector, he has introduced many new species of fish to the aquarium hobby. If it lives in the water, chances are that Rusty has either caught it or been bit or stung by it. Dr. Robert Rush Miller, emeritus professor of the University of Michigan named a beautiful and elusive cichlid discovered during one of his expeditions to Honduras, after Rusty in the June 1996 edition of Tropical Fish Hobbyist magazine, Theraps wesseli.

Rusty is as well a prolific author and photographer, his writings or photographs have appeared in a wide distribution of specialized publications, like Aquarium Fish Magazine, Aquarist and Pondkeeper, Buntbarsche Bulletin, Cichlid News, Ad Konings' Cichlids yearbooks, Freshwater and Marine Aquarium and Tropical Fish Hobbyist.

In the organized hobby, Rusty is currently "Convention liaison" and "Back issue Sales Person" for the American Cichlid Association and a speaker participant for the ACA/Marineland Speaker's Program. He is past chair of the ACA board of trustees (1990) and past convention chair (1992). In addition, he is an active solicitor for the "Guy Jordan Endowment Fund" (A fund set up under the ACA to grant endowments for cichlid research). On the local level, he is currently treasurer for the Louisville Tropical Fish Fanciers. Rusty has been awarded with the greatest honor the American Cichlid Association gives to its distinguished members, the ACA fellowship in 1997.

Rusty has lectured and judged numerous fish shows throughout the United States, including the annual "Florida Tropical Fish Farmers" show and several ACA conventions.

There will be attendance prizes and a raffle along with a bowl show - this month, aquatic critters.

Hope to see you there!!!

29 50th Anniversary Chicago Killie Show
Scott Davis
708-747-5913
IL USA The Chicago killie group is holding their 50th anniversary killifish show this weekend, March 29 - 30, 2008.

The featured speaker will be Jaap-Jan de Greef, just back from the Peruvian Amazon. Jaap-Jan, who may be even better known to live-bearer and cichlid enthusiasts, will give a couple of presentations Saturday about collecting killies and we will try a Q&A session Sunday while the auction is being set up.

Also in addition to the box sales of killies Saturday morning and early afternoon and the 11 AM Sunday auction, a plant vendor will set up on Saturday. And we will also have a live food table, where starters may be picked up inexpensively.

The plant guy (Cory from http://bayleesfishees.com) will arrange a plant sale table. He was at a show sponsored by the Michiana club about a month ago and everyone was quite impressed by the quality of his stock. Since it is a killie show, he was asked to emphasize low and moderate light plants.

The Sunday auction time is designed to let guests from down state and several other states leave for home in a timely manner, probably by 1 or 2 in the afternoon. Auction splits for anyone who brings killies, plants, live food cultures or aquarium gear are 70% to the seller. We are also importing a box of quite rare killies from Netherlands. Some of them you may only have seen in the books.

It is an open show. If anyone has a pair of killies or a big old stud and would like to see how they would do in a competition, the entry fee of a dollar is pretty nominal and has been the same for three decades. Small tanks and treated water are provided. One can bring their own water if they prefer.

The weather will be cool to unpleasant this weekend. It should be pretty nice inside the Downers Grove Holiday Inn Express, on Butterfield, just east of I-355. Saturdays and weekends can be amazingly busy, but it would be great to meet some of you.

MN USA Hi;

WOW! Can you believe there are only about 3 months until IMAC (the International Marine Aquarium Conference)? May 30, 31 and June 1 are approaching fast. The conference will be in Chicago at the Crowne Plaza Hotel where the room rates are just $119/nite for a single or double. Here are the Speakers:

Bob Fenner
Dr. Sanjay Joshi
Dr. Ron Shimek
Frank Burr
Anthony Calfo
Scott Fellman
Adam Cesnales
Jake Adams
John Coppolino
Dr. Adelaide Rhodes
James Fatheree
Tony Vargas
Tim Hayes
Allen LaPointe
Tullio Dell Aquilla
Tom Frakes (Banquet Speaker)

And there will be a Big Trade Show, a Gala Banquet and a Huge Raffle. Most of the Speakers have their bios and abstracts in and we have the Program Schedule up. We are again having a “behind-the-scenes” tour of the Shedd Aquarium.

Regular registration is still a bargain at $125 but, since you are reading this, you can take advantage of the special offer we make to members of reef clubs. The full registration can be yours for just $99. You have to go to Program Advertising and scroll all the way down. Just enter “Calendar” where it asks for the name of your club if you don’t belong to one.

So hurry over to www.theimac.org and check it out. The special $99 offer is only supposed to be good until the end of February but since this announcement is late, we will keep it open for you until the end of March. IMAC is your best value for education, checking out new products and schmoozing with other hobbyists.

Happy Reefkeeping,
Dennis
