This month's meeting is all about Live Foods in the Aquarium. Come along and hear a great talk from Bostave on 5 different kinds of live foods you can use in your fish tanks and grow at home. Hear all the benefits of using these live foods for your fish and find out how to cheaply keep producing them. Bostave will discuss Daphnia, Artemia, Micro Worms, Chlorella and Infusoria.

Very informative presentations from Bostave and Terry and also Extend with fish of the month - thanks heaps guys.

Was a really encouraging turnout - I think we had about 20 - 25 attending which is a boost for our regular meets. In fact Andrew Soh the month before was about 50 people and the auction in feb was around 80 so attendance for this year so far has been amazing!

Lots of chat amongst members in the breaks so if you haven't come to a meeting yet, it's a good time to see what it's all about. Next month is an auction so will be a busy night again but in June we are planning something a bit different with cichlid bingo and quiz night - should be a lot of fun so hope to see some new faces and lots more cichlid talk!
