Grateful for Ron Maichle’s Presentation at the September Meeting
We are grateful for Ron Maichle‘s informative talk about his upgrades to his fish room during the pandemic. Ron discussed several technical advances, including a DIY water filtration system. We are also thankful for his generous donation of fish to our mini-auction.
We Thank Eric Bodrock for His Presentation on Peru at the July Meeting
The attendees of the first in-person GAAS meeting since March 2020 were treated to an excellent collecting trip presentation by Eric Bodrock. He recounted his trip with Regina to the Madre de Dios region of Peru in search of Catfish, Tetras, Cichlids, and Killifish. He also brought some interesting catfish to share at the mini-auction. The Club is very grateful for our friendship with Eric. Click here to see Eric’s Bio.
