The February, 2016, GWAPA meeting was held at Ghazanfar Ghori’s house in Brambleton, VA (AKA Ashburn, VA). In addition to the usual food, conversation, and auction we got to look at Ghazanfar’s beautiful aquariums, and hear his talk on Cryptocoryne plants.

He described the geographic distribution of crypts, and their habitats. He then told us why they are an interesting/good plant to grow, and how to grow them. If you missed his talk you can find some nice photos and discussions of crypts on his blog:


Here are a few photos from the meeting:

These GWAPA members are probably wondering how he keeps the substrate so white:
