Ever wanted to dive in Malawi? Ever wondered how deep you'd dive to see an electric yellow in the wild? Ever eaten a Rhamphocromis with Nali sauce? Have you seen the sunset over Namalenji Island while watching Red Empress swimming around? How about releasing endangered species back to the wild while eagles sore above head?




You ALL need to come to our Tuesday, April 3rd - PCS meeting. Mattia Matarrese and Michael Power will be delivering a talk on a recent trip to Lake Malawi for a month along witBrett Brenchley from Perth Cichlid Society. See how 3 Aussies spent a month on the lake with great photos, adventures, stories and footage. 30+ dives on the lake documented and much more.

Find out how your donations to the Stuart Grant Fund for Cichlid Preservation directly helped us release endangered species back into the wild at Nkhomo Reef. Beautiful farm bred Aulonacara baenschi from wild stock boosting numbers in its endangered home. Listen to stories of how the Stuart Grant Family Trust released 600+ fish back to Taiwanee Reef to help preserve an endangered species of Chidongo saulosi. Watch the footage of these releases and feel pride in the help you have all provided to the Rift lakes and the hobby.

Hi everyone - hope to see you tonight!

For people renewing memberships - just catch myself or Darryl. Or for anyone looking at membership - easy to do, low cost, supports the club and lots of benefits.

Also can library books be progressively returned and it would be great to see more checked out. There’s a whole cabinet of books and takes 2 minutes to check out (I just need your PCS member number).
