Open to All; Tues 11/10; Breeding Egg Scatterers; Randy Carey

Hi All,

The Greater Seattle Aquarium Society (gsas.org) is pleased to invite everyone to our November meeting on Tuesday, November 10th @ 7:00 pm PST. Our November speaker is Randy Carey who will be doing a presentation "Breeding the Scatterers": "Breeding the Scatterers - tetras, barbs, rasboras, Oh My!". The presentation will be on YouTube Livestream: gsas.org/stream

November 10th, 7:00 PM: Randy Carey "Breeding the Scatterers": "Breeding the Scatterers - tetras, barbs, rasboras, Oh My!"
YouTube Open Livestream: gsas.org/stream


Randy Carey is an enthusiastic aquarist and writer. He launched one of the first aquarium sites and authored the first online aquarium blog in the 90s. Randy wrote a quarterly column in TFH magazine (The Art of Characins), traveled to places like the Smithsonian and Amazon to write articles, and was hired to write the book Tetras and Barbs.

Randy's fishroom grew from a few tanks to nearly one hundred -- a portion for display, and a portion for focused breeding. As he transitions into semi-retirement, Randy is spending more time in the fishroom and developing programs for select species.

His presentation will include photos and commentary illustrating the pattern of scattering strategy as practiced by the characins and cyprinids. As the aquarium is ill-suited to the scattering strategy, the focus on the talk is on what the aquarist must do to successfully breed and rear these fish. This is one of the few talks on breeding egg-scatters currently available to aquarium societies, so we hope you will join us for this unique experience!

Hi @deeda,

Thank you for the kind words. The speakers do receive an honorarium for speaking for our club however it is still up to the speakers if they allow us to share their talks with non-members. During these difficult times most are very cooperative.

That was a really well done presentation, thanks for sharing!
Hi @chrisg,

Glad you liked it, hopefully it will be up for another day or two and then it is gone! I think it one of the 10 best presentations our club has had in the last 12 years. Hopefully when the VIRUS has died down we can invite him to our club for a real meeting!
