Catfish Study Group - International

    http://www.catfishstudygroup.org/core/index.htm

The Group was formerly known as the Northern Area Catfish Group (NACG) which was formed in 1979 as a member group/branch of the Catfish Association of Great Britain (CAGB).
When the main group broke up in 1993 the NACG was left as the only active catfish group in the country. The monthly meetings have always been held in Wigan in the northwest of England but with the membership growing and a fair number of the members being located outside of this area, it was felt in 1996 that the group would further benefit with a name change to a body that would identify itself as the main Catfish Group in the U.K.
Thus it was decided that the new millennium would herald a fresh beginning and so was born the Catfish Study Group (UK). The U.K. has now been dropped as of Jan.2007 to show how far we have come in a short period of time, to the world wide membership we now enjoy.

I’m not referring to those who want to convert a glass tank into a sump or building any other of their own equipment but those who insist on under powering their circulation, lighting, skimming and low water quality and forgoing the quarantine tanks that can’t understand why they have problems. Here in Las Vegas, the LFS are substandard and provide little (quality) education to their clients at best and as a tourist, not worth your time or your visit.
