The next Meeting is August 5th in Costa Mesa.
The humble goldfish, often the first pet fish one owns as a child. Either won at a fair by throwing a ping pong ball into a small bowl, or purchased by a parent out of the "feeder fish" tank. Those who continue to keep fish usually move on from that first goldfish into tropical fish, and miss out the huge variety and types of goldfish available. From small feeders, to giant Japanese Koi, to those that barely resemble fish at all with bug eye and huge bellies.
The world of gold fish is much larger, and often more beautiful that many realize. Come join COAST on August 5th when our guest speaker, Dick Au, takes a look at the varieties, selection, maintenance and reproduction of the goldfish.
Dick Au is a world-renown expert and author on many facets of the fish-keeping hobby. Dick has written numerous articles for publications such as TFH magazine. In addition, Dick is a current speaker and judge on the national and international levels at prestigious events such as NADA and Aquarama.
