October Speaker: Klaus Steinhaus (CARES + Tropheus)

Our October GSAS speaker will be Klaus Steinhaus. Klaus was born in Germany in 1948 and got his first aquarium in 1956 in which he kept Guppies and Platties. He started Cichlids in 1967 and has specialized in African Cichlids since 1974. He was a member of the German Cichlid Association from 1976 to 1982, when he moved to Canada. He currently is a member of the Durham Region Aquarium Society and the American Cichlid Association. Klaus is also an official speaker for C.A.R.E.S.

Klaus will be giving two presentations. On Tuesday October 14th, he will speak on the CARES program, its history and people, how to participate, and the state of aquarium fish conservation. Klaus' website assures us that his presentation will be 45 minutes long. :)

We will also have a members-only meeting on Sunday, October 12th in the afternoon at a North-end location. Click here for more information. This presentation will be on keeping the African Cichlid genus Tropheus.

Klaus's talk is sponsored by Zoo Med Labs as part of the ACA Speaker Program. Thanks Zoo Med for your support!

General Auction Success

Thanks to everyone who worked, attended, bid on and sold items in our 2014 General Auction. In particular, we'd like to thank the local stores and other businesses who donated items to auction. We couldn't have done it without them!

Please remember to support those businesses who support us! Next time you're buying something from one of those stores, let em know.
