June Meeting

Monday, June 20th, 2022

Then she moved on to discussing live aquascaping contests. The main takeaway from her talk is that “your ranking is just a number based on subjective opinions.” See a photo of the group below:

Those who attended in person also got to participate in an auction. Hopefully going forward, GWAPA can go back to fully in person meetings!
