December Meeting-Holiday Party

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

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.

June Meeting

Jen Williams, an experienced aquascaping judge, gave a presentation to GWAPA this month. She divided her talk into photo and live aquascaping competitions. In the case of the former one, the most important thing is to have a high quality picture. Jen also talked about contestants cheating by using computer software to alter their photos. 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:
