**FREE Presentation - Livebearers: Greg Sage** - Presented by GSAS

**FREE Presentation - Livebearers: Greg Sage** - Presented by GSAS



The Greater Seattle Aquarium Society (GSAS) is pleased to sponsor a free presentation about Livebearer (tropical fish) by extraordinary livebearer breeder Greg Sage. Greg is the owner and operator of Select Aquatics, in Erie Colorado, currently keeping 130 fish tanks spawning and selling rare and endangered livebearers. He has aggressively worked to breed and maintain high quality strains of fish including rare and endangered species. His fish room setup allows for the spawning of larger numbers, working with strains and species that are hard to find, or desired but rarely found in good condition. Greg has been producing fish for hobbyists and universities for over 13 years. Since 1999, he has been maintaining a colorful, husky livebearer X. nezhualcoyotl, and actively works on making sure wild lines stay pure. His website is full of wonderful information on many species and fish care in general.

The presentation will be this Tuesday, May 14th, 2013 at 7:30PM at Seattle Pacific University; Otto Miller Hall; Room 109; West Nickerson Street and 3rd Avenue West

Doors will open about 6:30 PM for a 'social hour'; the meeting will start at about 7:30 PM

The lecture will be followed by a short auction

Hi stevenjohn21,

We brought Greg out a few days early and had a 'Members Only' meeting on Saturday where he discussed his methods of selective breeding; tonight he will be discussing the rare and endangered livebearer species he keeps.
