CAS Holiday Party and Awards 

A T T E N T I O N

December Meeting: Holiday Party, Awards, and Gift Exchange

Our Holiday Party for December will be held:
5:00pm on Saturday December 8th at
Landry's Seafood House
7209 South Clinton Street
Englewood, CO 80112

 Charge will be $10 per seat and MUST be confirmed and paid to Keann Brown in advance.  ONLY 54 seats are available, so please Call for reservations: 303-659-8084 ASAP

Dinner will be served Buffett Style and will include several meat options and salad.

Anyone who would like to participate in our ‘White Shark’ gift exchange should bring an un-wrapped fish related gift in a paper bag. These gifts are very fun and while there is not any limits on price range, they usually value between $5 and $20 and are in some way fish related, though they do not need to be aquarium supplies. The unlabeled gifts are placed on a table and numbers are drawn to participate.  When your number is called, you have the option to pick a new gift from the table or “steal” a gift from someone else.  Once a gift has been held by the same person three times, they keep the gift and it can no longer be stolen.  When all the gifts are taken from the table, each participating person will have a gift and the game is over.  (It may sound complicated, but it is really easy when you see it in action, and is a really fun time.)

Also, CAS awards will be announced and given out during the party.

The Holiday Party is open to members and their guests.

For More Information Contact CAS.


Bowl Show:

The Championship Bowl Show will be held in January. 

DO NOT BRING FISH to the December Holiday Party.

Golden Pothos - Epipremnum aureum

Golden Pothos - Epipremnum aureum

Occasionally grown fully inside an aquarium, this vine plant is usually grown with only part of the stem underwater and the leaves outside the tank.  The roots grow in the water from dark nodes (bumps on the stem).
 
This plant can grow very long outside the aquarium and filters nitrate out of the aquarium water very efficiently.

      Labidochromis caeruleus

      From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

      Labidochromis caeruleus
      The naturally occurring yellow morph of L. caeruleus is popular with aquarium hobbyists.
      Conservation status
      Scientific classification
      Kingdom: Animalia
      Phylum: Chordata

      Genus: Labidochromis
      Species: L. caeruleus
      Binomial name
      Labidochromis caeruleus
      Fryer, 1956

      Labidochromis caeruleus is a species of cichlid fish that is endemic to the central western coastal region of Lake Malawi in East Africa. It is also known as lemon yellow lab, the blue streak hap, the electric yellow or yellow prince, depending on the colour morph. A naturally occurring yellow-coloured variant from Nkhata Bay is one of the most popular cichlids amongst aquarium hobbyists.

      This species is a maternal mouthbrooder, meaning the eggs are carried, hatch, and develop in the mother’s mouth (buccal cavity), for about three weeks. These fish are ovophiles and the male will excavate a pit in the sand within his territory, in which the female lays the eggs; the female then takes these eggs into her mouth for fertilization.

      Electric yellows inhabit water with a pH between 7.8 and 8.9 and an ideal temperature range of 23–26 °C (73.4–78.8 °F).

          Java Moss is a moss belonging to the Hypnaceae family. Native to Southeast Asia, it is commonly used in freshwater aquariums. It attaches to rocks, roots, and driftwood. The identity of this well-known plant is not resolved; formerly thought to be Vesicularia dubyana (Brotherus, 1908), it may actually be Taxiphyllum barbieri.[1]

          Java Moss does not require any special attention. It accepts all kind of waters, even weakly brackish, and all kind of light qualities. It grows best at 70 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit (21 to 24 degrees Celsius), but can live in temperatures of up to 85 to 90 °F (29 to 32 °C). It is a low light plant and makes a great foreground plant. In aquariums it should be planted where there is good water current because debris gets stuck on it easily and gives it a brown fuzzy appearance. Due to its clinging nature Java Moss can also be made into a moss wall. This can be accomplished by folding a net and spreading the moss evenly across it. Then, the net can be secured together by polyester strings, and held on the aquarium wall by using suction cups. It is a slow starter until it has established itself.

          It is especially popular among aquarists raising fry (baby fish) and tadpoles, to protect them from cannibalistic adults. Java Moss can also provide food for the newly formed fry, which can be challenging to feed. Some shrimp like to tear the miniature leaves off it to eat.

          Java Moss can be easily propagated via division. It is suitable for both aquariums and vivariums.
