This month's meeting is all about breeding in the Aquarium. Come along and hear a great talk from the PCS committee on the ins and outs of breeding your fish and highlights on Lake Tanganyikan species breeding. Ameya will talk all about the different types of breeding that occur. Mouth brooders, egg layers and the general types you need to be aware of.


Then some of the other committee members will talk about specific Lake Tanganyikan species breeding and  most of these fish can be found in our PCS Aquarium on show at Atwell College. Learn the basics and the details of breeding fish in your aquarium. Take this knowledge and enter the PCS Breeders Award program every month.

It was me and my wife's first meeting and we had a good time. The booty given away in the raffle was unreal while the talks were interesting. It was a very welcoming and inclusive atmosphere so we'll definitely be back for more, especially as the meeting has my wife wanting a cichlids tank now so anything that helps me sink the hobbie's claws in deeper is great.

Cheers to the organisers.
