**FREE Killifish Presentation by Matt Kaufman** - Presented by GSAS

**FREE Killifish Presentation by Matt Kaufman** - Presented by GSAS

The Greater Seattle Aquarium Society (GSAS) is pleased to sponsor a free lecture titled 'Keeping and Enjoying Killifish' by Matt Kaufman. In this talk, Matt Kaufman shares his killi-keeping and killi-enjoying techniques. He will show lots of pictures of pretty fish, lots of not as pretty pictures of killi setups, how he keeps, breeds, and feeds his killies, and try to demystify these engrossing, beautiful, easy yet challenging gems of the aquarium hobby.

Matt has been keeping freshwater tropical fish since he was a kid growing up in an apartment in Queens, NY. In the late 1980's, with the advent of Usenet and newsgroups, he discovered killifish, killifish keepers (many of whom are interesting in their own right but not anything you'd want to keep), the American Killifish Association and his local killi club, the Metro Area Killi Association, located in NJ. He's kept killies regularly ever since, at one point having 150 "tanks" housing 30 species of various types. Eventually, he scaled back to just a few dozen favorites, then, in 2003, took a job in Redmond, WA. Despite moving 4 times in 2003-2004, he was never without a few pairs of killies and in 2004, built a killi closet in his garage in Woodinville, where he keeps a few favorite species today.
