Hi Everyone,

I’d like to thank Jessica Bullock for her fascinating program “From the literature to the lab; adventures in cichlid research”. Our June speaker will be Randy Seufert. Randy’s program “The Little Catfish” looks at the 4 families of small catfish with hints of how to sex, breed, and raise them.

We’ve asked each CAOAC club to participate in an aquascaping challenge. There’s nothing better than a little competition. There’s also nothing better than watching a group of people fascinated by a beautiful tank. So let’s get all the clubs involved. I’m thinking 20 gallon tanks. Prizes include bragging rights of course, trophy and more. Please let me know if your interested caoac1@gmail.com

Hope to see you at the meeting on Thurs!
