September 2019 Meeting

Tuesday, September 3rd, 2019 at 6:57 am

Renowned professional aquascaper, Jeff Miotke, will speak at our September 28th meeting in Columbia, MD. Jeff will share insights about aquascaping. Kris Weinhold will host the meeting at his home.
In addition, we will have our regular auction. Members and non-members are welcome.

From Jeff Miotke:

I have been an avid aquarist for over 40 years keeping many varieties of fresh and saltwater fish.  In 2011 I discovered Nature Aquarium by Takashi Amano and it changed my world.  I studied, practiced and started creating nature aquariums which led me to the competitive scene.  I have the honor of being ranked among the top aquascapers year after year.

​Recently I retired from my profession and focused on my passion of aquascaping.  In the past year I have had the time to share my experience and insights.    I have been writing articles for the AGA magazine, speaking at fish and aquascaping clubs, competing in both photo and live contests, judged the AGA contest and making friends around the world.  This year I had the time to enter all the international contests (IAPLC, IIAC, CIAC, RFLAC and AGA).  I am enjoying traveling and look forward to even more sharing of the wonderful world of aquascaping.
