The Perth Cichlid Society proudly presents:
A Day with 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.
