April Meeting

Over twenty people showed up to the April meeting to listen to Jonathan Butkus’ talk on how to keep North American native fishes and plants and how to set up biotopes for them. Furthermore, he discussed collecting fishes including some methods, state laws, and ethical questions. We were all riveted by his highly entertaining presentation. Then we had our regular monthly auction with some unusual mosses, tank raised Corydoras, and tetra species.
