    Welcome to 2018 fish nerds!

    If you couldn't tell be the title our speaker will be discussing loaches and attempts to breed them in captivity. Being a loach fanatic I am super excited so come watch me geek out, it might be entertaining all by itself. No, seriously, I .:cool:..will..:p. try..:p..to..:oops:.restrain.;).. myself....:D:D:rolleyes:o_O

    Here is our tentative agenda for the meeting- I will try to update any changes in this thread

    What are you bringing to the meeting for our mini auction? Don't forget to enter it into my group auctions before the meeting to save time at check in and to give everyone time to set up that tank for those fish and plants you're bringing. Feel free to let everyone know on this thread as well. Our BAP program is going strong with Steve and I battling it out in the 21 tanks and over division and lots of contenders in the 20 tanks and under division. Thats just for Breeder of the Year, many are acheiving their milestones as well and earning their awards. The GARP program is also garnering interest from our aquatic gardeners- This months theme is Wabi kusa- and all meeting attendees get to vote on the entries- its a mini aquascaping contest!

    I will be bringing the following BAP fish:
    Ameca splendens (A CARES species)
    Hemichromis lifalili
    Lamprologus occelatus 'purple'
    Protomelas taeniolatus
    Zoogeneticus tequilla (A CARES species)

    If I can get my wabi kusa started soon I will bring one along with a few plants, don't know which ones yet, stay tuned.

    If I am successful with my attempts to culture planaria and have plenty I might bring a culture of that as well.
