January Meeting

Wednesday, February 1st, 2023

Over 25 people showed up to the first GWAPA meeting which was presided by our new president, Arlene Wagner. This month’s presentation was a beginner’s guide to setting up a planted tank. It was far the best presentation of the year so far with an excellent speaker who kept the audience captivated during his high-interest talk.


December Meeting-Holiday Party

Monday, December 12th, 2022

About twenty people gathered at this year’s GWAPA holiday party. We enjoyed great food, had our monthly auction with some unusual fishes (Hyphessobrycon wadai, Hyphessobrycon negodagua, L183, rare Corydoras, etc.), held a raffle, and played a game. Also, the new board was introduced with Arlene Wagner as the new president! The picture below shows one of Arlene’s sweet creations.


October Meeting

Saturday, October 22nd, 2022

At the October meeting, GWAPA had a workshop led by Jack McCarly of Studio Aquatica on how to create a wabi-kusa. Tropica donated plants, and Seachem donated tweezers to the participants. Out of the more than 30 people in attendance, 22 created their wabi-kusas, which should last close to a year before root tabs would need to be added for nutrients.
