Our next meeting is Friday February 9th! 8:00 pm.
Our Program will be, “Protecting and Feeding Fry.” by Brian Shrimpton.
Brian is an active member of the Northeast Ohio Fish Club (NEOfish), and will once again present his experiences in the hobby to GAAS.
For our February program, Brian will be speaking on how he provides food and protection to fry that allows them to get to a safe size. If you have fish that are spawning, then don’t miss this program for the important next steps that will allow the fry to thrive.
Also, to make up for January’s meeting cancellation, we will be having a DOUBLE BOWL SHOW!
