***FREE Presentation*** Cichlids - Juan Miguel Artigas Azas - GSAS


Hi All,

Since our May speaker Rusty Wessel was so popular GSAS has decided to double down on cichlids; our September speaker is internationally known Juan Miguel Artigas Azas from San Luis Potosí, México. This presentation is sponsored in part by the American Cichlid Association (ACA) and Zoo Med Labs.

Juan Miguel is an aquarist in San Luis Potosí, México (the very center of it). He has loved fish since he can remember and has kept them steadily in home aquariums for over 25 years now. His main interest are Central American Cichlids and Mexican fishes, but he is also very interested in any other type of fish. Although he mainly maintains Mexican Cichlids, Poeciilids, Goodeids and Cyprinodontids.
He is the creator and editor of the Cichlid Room Companion. His love for computers and nature, together with the revolutionary development of Internet was too much for him to let the opportunity to create this page pass along. He has found that the maintenance of a real good home page is a life time enterprise, and he is ready to cope to that.

Juan Miguel enjoys traveling to the natural habitats of the fish he enjoys, where he obtains underwater pictures of them. He likes to observe them, trying to understand their natural history and relationships. He has managed to obtain a great knowledge on the biology and geographical distribution of the fishes in Mexico. This gives to his conferences an originality and special interest.

He has written several articles on Mexican and Central American Freshwater fish, mainly on cichlids, for several club and aquarium publications. He has also been honored with the invitation as lecturer in fish oriented conventions in several countries, including México, United States, Belgium, Canada, England, Netherlands, Norway, France, Italy and Germany. Juan Miguel is part of the American Cichlid Association - Marineland speakers program.

The presentation will be Tuesday, September 9th, 2014 at 7:15 PM at Seattle Pacific University; Demaray Hall Room 150; 509 West Bertona in Seattle.

Doors will open about 6:30 PM for a 'social hour'; the meeting will start at 7:15 PM.

After the meeting please join us for our monthly auction and help to support the club that brings us all our these outstanding speakers.

Hi All,

Just a reminder that tomorrow evening at 7:15 is the GSAS meeting with Juan Miguel; we are meeting on the SPU campus but in Demaray Hall, Room 150 not our regular location. THIS TALK WILL NOT BE RECORDED ON VIDEO SO DO NOT MISS IT!

For those GSAS Members that missed the Sunday 'members only' meeting you missed a great talk on the various members of the Goodeid species.
