Here is the Agenda for our meeting:

May meeting replaced by the Southwest Aquarium Keepers Event(SAKE) 5/14/22
10-gallon Challenge coming again this summer
Plant Trimming and Planting Demo

This month we will have a demonstration of trimming and planting aquatic plants by Peter and John. This will continue the demo series begun by Amit showing how to set up a planted tank. Peter and John will be discussing how to trim and plant a wide variety of plants including moss, epiphytes such as ferns, Bucephalandra, and Anubias, rosette plants like swords and Cryptocorynes, foreground plants, and stem plants such as Ludwigia and Rotala. They will have a tank set up at the meeting with substrate and a selection of hardscape materials to demonstrate the best methods of planting and attachment. This should be quite an informative demonstration.
We are looking for input on presentation topics for this year. If you have ideas for topics or would like to present, please reach out to us! Presentations don't have to be a research review or super scientific, we encourage members to share their experiences in the hobby. If that is keeping a specific type of fish, breeding fish, growing plants, or setting up a certain style of aquarium (past examples: blackwater, biotopes, low tech/high tech/Walstad planted tanks) are all good ideas for a topic. Please reach out to club VP John Willmon, or one of the other Board Members, with ideas in person or by emailing [email protected]

Rules for the auction:
You are allowed a maximum of 10 items to submit for the auction.
Please label your items with the number (out of 10), your name, and item description if applicable.
Please fill out the Auction items form when you arrive or they can be downloaded on our new website.

If you are bringing live plants or fish, please arrange for ice packs/coolers for storage and transport. The club will have some coolers available for the duration of the meeting, but space may be limited. Proceedings from the auction will be settled by cash only at the conclusion of the auction.
