Rift Lakes for Rookies
Chuck Rambo has been keeping freshwater fish for 46 years. He has always been in love with cichlids and their behavior. At one point he had over 50 aquariums going with cichlids from all over the world. He is the past president of the Pacific Coast Cichlid Association and is the current Chairman of the American Cichlid Association. Chuck has been giving presentations on cichlids to aquarium societies and national conventions all over the United States and Canada. He has been collecting cichlids in both Lake Tanganyika and Lake Malawi. Chuck will be presenting a great talk for the October meeting about these famous lakes and will provide valuable insights, comparisons between the environments, the collecting techniques involved as well as their cichlids.
Come join us this Friday!
By popular demand, the aquatic SIG headed by Leon is back in action!
Aquatic Plant SIG Nr7 will be a workshop on: "How to ID plants". The SIG will start AT 6:15, will last 30 mins and have time for questions and discussion. Leon will try to keep the Botanical terms to a minimum -- but, the names of parts of our plants is important. There will be some books to look through and a handout on how the Experts work through a key to get to the scientific name of the plant. Bring a plant and we will try to ID it.
