Notice of meeting of the Colorado Aquarium Society, Friday, September 1, 2017 @7:30

Friday, Sepotember 1, 2017 @ 7:30 at the Bethany Lutheran Church, 4500 E. Hampden Ave.  If you enjoy the aquarium hobby, want to learn more about your fish and you want to have access to new species and new varieties, join us once a month for a very fishy experience.   Non-members, visitors and guests are always welcome. No cost to attend. Family friendly. Get Fishy!

  • Our guest speaker     will be our own Mike Wise, speaking on Collecting on the Rio Napo. Mike Wise is a     frequent speaker nationally and is a recognized expert on fish and fish     keeping topics.   On my month-long 2012 trip to the Amazon I spent 10     days exploring the length of the Rio Napo in Peru. This river is rarely     visited by tourists nor commercial fish collectors. My friends and I were     able to collect in new locations where we found several new and rare fish     species.
  • We     will have a mini auction of fish, plants and other fish related     items.  
  • Our     Bowl Show categories for September will be include
        1. Native Fish. Fish native to the U.S., such as Bass, Sunfish, Minnows,     Catfish, Killies, the Texas Cichlid, wild Sail-fin Mollies (P. Iatipinna),     and Mosquito Pish.
