Our June meeting features Mr. Rainbowfish himself, Gary Lange, from St. Louis. One of our most requested speakers, this will be Gary's fourth trip to Seattle and GSAS. This time around, Gary will be speaking on the genus Pseudomugil, otherwise known as
blue-eyes. These Australia/New Guinea fish are very popular nowadays, especially with the nano aquarium craze. Gary will be bringing some eggs to sell -- check Airstone for details! Normal date and time, June 12th, 7:30 PM, 6:30 social time. Otto-Miller Room 109. Monthly auction to follow.
If that weren't enough, Gary has agreed to do a second presentation, on his most recent collecting experience. This talk, “Cruzing Papua”, will be the day before the main meeting, June 11th, 7:00 PM. Same building (Otto Miller Hall), but room 127 (the room directly behind our normal room). This is just a presentation, so will get out much earlier.
As mentioned in a previous post, Ad Konings will be presenting a talk on the cichlids of the African rift lakes Tuesday May 8th, at our usual location of Seattle Pacific University.
However, many members also would like to hear his most recent Lake Tanganyika expedition talk, so Ad has agreed to give a second presentation on Wednesday May 9th at the King County Library, Boulevard Park branch. This second meeting is just the talk, in a less-formal setting and starting earlier at 6:30. Hope you can join us for one or both of these presentations!
May 8, 7:30 PM, usual meeting location of Otto-Miller 109, SPU.
We are very pleased to announce our May GSAS meeting with special Internationally-famous guest speaker Ad Konings! Anyone who's been involved in the Cichlid side of the hobby will instantly recognize Ad, who over the past thirty years has authored and published some of the best books on the fishes of the African Rift Lakes. His photographs and video are famous for always featuring the fish in their native habitats. Ad is also a fierce advocate for the preservation of these fish, starting the Stuart Grant Cichlid Conservation Fund. He is always traveling to the lakes, and as such, his talks are always changing. At this time, we have no idea which talk we will ask him to give, but we can guarantee it will be fascinating!
March 13, 7:30 PM, usual meeting location of Otto-Miller 109, SPU.
Join us for the return of
My Favorite Fish, GSAS's series of member micro-talks, where members have just a few minutes to plead their case as to why their favorite fish should also be your favorite as well! This meeting was very well received in 2017, so we're bringing it back. This year, we have opened the category up to include a plant or two, an amphibian, an invert and even a parasitic organism. Should be a lot of fun.
After the meeting, stay for the monthly auction.
