July 2019

Our Next Regular Meeting Is Friday, July 12, 2019

Teri and Randy Seufert will present “The Little Catfish,” which is a program that looks at some of the smaller species of the catfish family—those of the genera Aspidoras, Brochis, Corydoras, and Scleromystax. The program covers keeping these little gems in your tanks, care, aquarium requirements, diet, and breeding. The program looks at many of the species of these little catfish with colorful pictures and information of the 4 groups.

Biography: Teri and Randy Seufert have been in the hobby for over 55 years. Both are very active in the hobby— showing fish at shows, breeding fish for the Breeders Award Program, and propagating plants for the Horticultural Award Program. Additionally, Randy is an auctioneer for many clubs.

In the past 3 years they have attended the Catfish Conventions in Herndon, Virginia, and Madison, Wisconsin. Being able to meet others interested in these small catfish, to exchange information, and to help raise and hopefully successfully spawn them.  Attending these conventions also has given us a chance to find some of the rare or new species that are in the hobby. Teri has been successful in spawning many of these little catfish as well as many other fish in the fish room.
