Despite the Covid restrictions, the Desert Aquarist Society (Tucson area fish club) has continued to hold monthly meetings via Zoom. Every 2nd Sunday of the Month (eg. April 11 @ 2pm) a virtual meeting is held with a lecture/presentation and an opportunity for members to talk before and after. (1:30pm to 3:00pm is generally the whole duration).

Join us for this monthg topic, 'Breeding for Simplicity and Sustainability' by Sam Murphy. Again, Sunday, April 11th at 2pm via Zoom (but feel free to enter the Zoom room as early as 1:30pm if you'd like to meet and talk with others beforehand).


We have suspended Club Dues ($20 a year) until we can meet in person (which we anticipate happening this summer). Send an email to [email protected] to receive regular invites or go to the FaceBook Page: Desert Aquarist Society for information.
Meanwhile, we launched a fun contest called the 10-Gallon Challenge. Lots of folks have these laying around and it's an easy way to get your hands wet again. Read the attached flyer for details!

Usually there are gift certificates to local Fish Stores. I'll ask the board members. I know that for the end of the year Home Show, where members submit entries in various categories, there are prizes like that awarded.

Hey, if you live somewhat close to Tucson, you should consider joining the club.

Gilbert to Tucson isn't that far.... :p. Actually, we've discussed doing a live stream to Zoom at future events for folks that live far. We had a few members who lived in Phoenix.... I live closer to Nogales (Mexican border) than I do Tucson.

Today, the Desert Aquarist Society (aka Tucson area aquarium club) had it's first inperson meeting in Reid Park in Tucson. No presentation... Just meet and greet and auction. I picked up allot of goodies today in the way of plants.... In fact, it inspired me to modify my 10-Gallon Challenge Entry to reflect my bounty from the club auctions today.... I spent $66 dollars.... So it's the Auction66 Tank. I will add some shrmp tomorrow.

This has 6 tiny juvenile Silver Angles, 6 tiny juvenile Green Neon Tetras, 1 small juvenile Bristlenose Plecos, 4 young Fancy Guppies (my wife's contribution). Tomorrow, I will add 4 young red rili type shrimp. It's low tech, so modest Ecoxotic Stunner Strips for lighting and no CO2. I am fertilizing with Excel, Flourish Iron, Flourish and Flourish Potassium.... very modest quantities...
