The Perth Cichlid Society proudly presents:

A Day with Ad Konings

Juan Miguel


Ad Konings

Anyone with even a passing familiarity with African cichlids has likely heard the name Ad Konings. Ad is a world renowned ichthyologist with a particular interest in the cichlids of Lakes Malawi and Tanganyika. He has spent a good deal of his life keeping, studying and documenting cichlids. An accomplished diver and photographer, he has spent thousands of hours underwater in the Rift Lakes. Some years ago, he started Cichlid Press, and has since has written and produced over 30 titles, including most of the “go to” books on African cichlids. Living in Texas, Ad travels vast distances each year. He has been on innumerable study and collecting expeditions to African and South and Central American rivers and lakes. Also in heavy demand as a Speaker for Aquarist meetings and conventions, he travels from Europe to... well... Australia and all parts between. Fresh from a trip to Lake Tanganyika, he is coming to talk to the Perth Cichlid Society.



Juan Miguel Artigas Asaz

Juan Miguel Artigas Azas is an aquarist from Mexico. Having kept cichlids for decades, his main interest lies in Central American cichlids and Mexican fishes. Juan often travels to the natural habitats of the fish he studies, photographing and observing them in their native environment He has over time developed a

deep understanding of their natural history and behaviour. On the web, he is the creator of The Cichlid Room Companion (cichlidae.com), and making use of his extensive knowledge and experience he travels to many fish related conferences and delivers lectures on the subjects he knows so well.

We have been lucky to be able to arrange for him to come and give a talk to the Perth Cichlid Society.

Come on guys please help support the club I doubt this chance is going to come around again anytime soon.

It's not a cheap thing to bring an international speaker over and we only have 20 tickets sold so far.

That is embarrassing people, how about all you takers from the forum and the club give back to the club for once in your lives and support the most exciting thing to happen in the clubs history. If this gets cancelled due to poor numbers, don't expect anything exciting to happen in the future.

Looks like I miss this :(
Waited a very long time to see Ad, but with work I may miss it.
If I find out that I will miss it, I will pass my ticket onto someone who would like to go but cant afford it.

Do we have an idea of what the 'meals' will be? Is there an itinerary of the day, even if it's a draft?

No we are trying to work out the catering - thinking to get a local cafe to supply food if we can find something suitable. Suggestions welcome by those who've bought a ticket
