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. 

Our Speaker will be Kevin Thurston. He will be presenting a “guided tour”, exploring the habitats in the three major rivers around Iquitos, Peru (Nanay, Itaya and Amazon). There will be pictures of many different kinds of fish including tetras(rummy nose, piranhas, chalceus), cichlids (discus, angels, Apistograsmma), catfish (pictus, plecos, corydoras) and knifefish; along with information about exactly where they were caught and what sort of environment they were found in. 

We will have a mini auction of fish, plants and other.

Our Bowl Show will be a “double header”. Our show categories from July are: Livebearers, Mollies, Swords, Platys, Guppies and all fish of the Poecillae family, shown in pairs. Also Goldfish and Koi, shown as singles. The August classes will be Marine fish, species that are exclusively marine. Large Neotropical Cichlids from North, Central and South American whose adult size is over 4 inches.  And there is an open class for any and all fish.
