Hello, The October meeting is fast approaching- Come join us at the Hody for Mike Hellweg's presentation on Bettas (not splendens) and then add something new to your tank at our monthly auction. The auction is up at mygroupauctions.com so feel free to add your items! The BAP race is heating up as Steve passed me at Catfish Cataclysm and there is plenty of time for others to get in the race for Breeder of the Year- the 20 tanks and under category looks to be a tough race this year. And don't forget about GARP, this month's theme is Harvest Festival Mogul! +2 points per plant lot submitted that sells for $5.00+ so bring in those high value plants and your pocketbooks as all the gardener's try to bring in their best! There will be at least one CARES species in the auction as well as I have Haplochromis brownae BAP fish to bring in. So if you want to get involved in maintaining a rare species stop in and grab a group. I will have the aforementioned Haplochromis brownae for BAP, I may have Labeotropheus trewavasae 'ochre Chilumba' as well but I don't think they will be big enough this month. I will definitely have some plants as well just not sure what yet and may bring in some additional fish.
