Default Free Presentation On Dwarf Cichlids by Chuck Rambo Sponsored by GSAS

The Greater Seattle Aquarium Society (GSAS) is pleased to sponsor a free lecture on rare and unusual Dwarf Cichlids by Chuck Rambo. Chuck has been keeping tropical fish as pets since 1967. His interest in fish got him started working in pets shops and fish stores while in high school to directly importing fish from South America and Asia, while attending college. After graduation he got a real job as a geotechnical field engineer and is still currently working as one today.

When Rift Lake cichlids were first introduced into the hobby he was immediately taken by them and had a strong interest in all cichlids ever since. He is a past Chairman and current Fellow of the American Cichlid Association. He is also the past president of his local club, the Pacific Coast Cichlid Association. He has been diving in Lake Malawi and Lake Tanganyika with Ad Konings. In 2009 he led a group of local club members to Florida to collect feral cichlids and visit tropical fish farms. His other interests include collecting antique aquariums and maintaining his collection of carnivorous plants. This will be Chuck's first visit to Seattle and is looking forward meeting new aquarists and making new friends.

The lecture will be Tuesday, November 8th, 2011 at 7:30PM at Seattle Pacific University; Otto Miller Hall; Room 109; West Nickerson Street and 3rd Avenue West

Doors will open around 7:10PM; the meeting will start at 7:30PM

The lecture will be followed by a short auction

Just now saw this;

The tank is doing great! I plan on picking up some more plants at the mini-auction, and HOPEFULLY somebody brings some fish I can put in my 55g. The tank has been empty since the last meeting

I might bring a few trimmings of my Pogostemon erectus that was grown emersed because its doing so well.

Oh, I am now on crutches due to knee surgery, so Idk if I can be an auction runner

Can't wait until next week!

Hi All,

Tomorrow (Tuesday) evening....don't miss this opportunity. I attended the Saturday Members Only meeting and Chuck did a great talk on Lake Victoria cichlids. I don't keep African cichlids but I thoroughly enjoyed the presentation. I am really looking forward to the 'Rare and Unusual' cichlid talk!

@ Da Plant Man.....you never know what the weather will be in the Northwest!
