Feb/ March topics

Post  twocat on Mon Jan 19, 2015 9:41 am

Any suggestions for topics for the next two meetings?

I would like to start another contest soon if anyone has any suggestions.

IUCN list of endangered species

Post  jikin junkie on Wed Jan 21, 2015 11:56 am

I'd like to see everybody keep at least one species of critically endangered fish, be it cichlids, killifish, egglayers or livebearers. I think devoting a tank to that and breeding them would be a good contest. Very Happy

Sounds interesting!

Post  Katnapper on Thu Jan 22, 2015 3:14 am

But... where do we get information on which species are critically endangered?  And then, will we be able to find/get at least a male/female pair (or more)?  Where should we look?  Will they be expensive?

Oh, and the only negative I see is... depending on some of us (namely me) to keep a critically endangered species alive.  [The history books:  "Criticalus endangerdous" went extinct in 2015 after Katnapper unsuccessfully attempted to breed and keep the species alive.  Conservationists and the FBI are still looking for her."]

A since of humor,  I like that.

I would be interested in this contest but we would have to figure out how to measure things in order to have a winner.


There are a lot of goodeids and Xiphophorus that would fit this category.  I have a source in Glenn Carbon that seems to sell things at a nice price.  I would expect (think) to get a start of 5 or 6 fry or juveniles for $20 or less.

Select Aquatics of Erie CO. also has a nice web site for these.




This could be a club trip, if there is interest.

As I mentioned before, there will be a PC and a projector available for us if anyone wants to bring a flash drive with pictures on it.

What kind of pictures?

Post  Katnapper on Thu Feb 05, 2015 3:26 pm

Hmmm... I don't recall hearing you mention it before. Maybe I wasn't listening? Smile

What kind/s of pictures do you mean... endangered species pics or general personal aquarium/fish pics?

Next month...

Post  jikin junkie on Tue Feb 10, 2015 12:58 pm

So should we plan on using the library again for Marchs' meeting? Sorry I had to leave so soon and thanks Mark and Becky for the fish and snails. What should the topic be? What about upcoming events? I haven't been on the ball this year with dates for swaps, auctions, and shows. Razz

I'll reserve the library as soon as I get the chance. Hopefully this will get some people to come.

The library sounds good.
I am open for topics but I was thinking about talking about Wild Livebearers.

The livebearers topic sounds good.

Naturally the Library is booked for the next 2 months. Mark you have a contact at Culvers?

I'm going to try and get a hold of Maddie and see if she can put in the story to check the website for meeting location.
