this meeting going forward. Please refer to your March 2017 magazine issue on
page 18 for the details on the new sizing requirements / guidelines.


Q&A & POWER OUTAGE / BLACKOUT

Do you have a question about your tanks or fish? On the night we will
be having a questions & answers session to allow our members and guests
to ask questions. Have a problem with colony or setup? This is the night to
bring it up!
Have you ever lost power and though what to do with your fish?
In addition to our Q&A session, Kevin Sorensen will
be presenting a discussion on what to do in the event of a power
outage / blackout. Kevin will also be touching on the effects of
equipment failure for extended periods of time.

MINI FISH AUCTION

There are generally around 100 lots of fish and dry goods that come through in a mini
auction,  so you are bound to find something that you would love to add to your tank!
Whether  you are  after a new breeder, display fish or something to add to your colony, our
mini auction is your solution.  From the common electric yellow, to the more rare species
of Cichlids and also L number catfish, we hope that our auction can help!
