Notice of meeting of the Colorado Aquarium Society

If you enjoy the aquarium hobby, want to learn more about your fish and you want to have access to new species and new varieties, join us once a month for a very fishy experience.
Non-members, visitors and guests are always welcome. No cost to attend. Come fish with us!

  • Our April Program will Feature Mr. Greg Sage, Breeding the Green Dragon Pleco:
    Greg Sage MEd., has been keeping fishrooms of various sizes for 45 years, always with an emphasis on Livebearers. As an IFGA Guppy breeder for a number of years, the clean and organized practices required was well suited to the wild Swordtails and Goodeids that have come into the hobby over the past 25 years. Select Aquatics was begun in 2009 to study, maintain and breed many of these rare species, and distribute them into the hobby. Home countries are now restricting export, and many of these species are disappearing, both in the wild and in the hobby. Greg writes customers daily with fishkeeping issues, and has documented and posted much of what has been learned at the
    website. He resides in Colorado with his patient wife, Laura, and Ripley, the Cavalier King Charles spaniel.

    Since first beginning to work with the Longfin Green Dragon Pleco in 2011, many thousands have been bred and sold, and Select Aquatics is in its 4th generation of selectively breeding the Green Dragons for excellent color and finnage. Initially begun with little success at even getting them to breed, much has been learned, and this talk covers the setup and use of 7 different layers of filtration to breed them consistently. The talk also covers the feeding and raising of fry in such a way that losses are very low, producing large, robust and hardy fish.

  • We will have a mini auction of fish, plants and other fish related items.
