MASI monthly meeting June 17, 2010 - Summer Tubbin'

The monthly meeting will be Thursday June 17th, 2010, at 7:30, at the Dorsett Village Baptist Church, off McKelvey Rd., in Maryland Heights. MASI is open to all a”fish”ionados, whether experienced or beginner, fresh water or salt. This months program is: “Summer Tubbin”: Give Your Fish and Plants a Summer Vacation! by Mike Hellweg and special guests Harold and Derek Walker. Anyone can enjoy pond life and a summer of aquatics outdoors even if the have a small patio or balcony. In this talk we will cover all aspects of setting up a summer tub water garden from planning and placement to local regulations and choosing plants and fish for these unique mini-ponds. We’ll also discuss the problems, like dealing with pests and predators. Finally, we’ll set up a couple tubs, one large and one small, and conduct a FREE raffle of both mini-ponds at the end of the talk!

We will also include some talk about aquatic plant propagation outdoors, and the Walker brothers will give a brief overview of their techniques for raising seedlings from flowers.

Mike has long been the crown jewel of the Missouri Aquarium Society, serving 14 years as club president, founding MASI’s HAP program, and by being an active speaker and member of several national clubs, he has promoted MASI like no other. We are very fortunate to have him as a member.

In addition to what Mike has done for MASI, he also writes for several magazine plus has written a fantastic book on Live Food and has another books in the works!

We will be raffling off the brand new book, “Planted Aquariums”, along with a mini auction, attendance prizes and a bowl show, this month, it’s the catfish!!!!

Hope to see you there!!!
