His talk with detail the care and breeding of these cichlids, with special emphasis on their CARES designation.

In addition to his cichlid obsession, Greg has extensively explored and catalogued the aquatic species inhabiting the Comal, a local river in South Central Texas. Greg will present a bonus talk on Monday night (the 10th) about the surprising and diverse collections of ecosystems in this small river!
