You ALL need to come to our Tuesday, July 3rd - PCS meeting. We have The Fish Vet - Dr Richmond Loh coming in to talk all about 'Cichlid Diseases'. Dr Loh will go through all the nasty things you need to look out for in your aquariums and how to prevent or remedy them if they do occur. You can ask Dr Loh all your 'Cichlid Disease' questions and get answers straight from the master.

His passion for all things aquatic gave birth to The Fish Vet. Armed with his knowledge, skills and extensive experience, Dr Loh and his team provides professional veterinary services to pet fish owners, public aquaria, retailers, wholesalers and fish farmers (ornamental and food fish) - locally, interstate and internationally.

It was great!

And my son said he learnt fish can get diarrhoea so something for everyone

(My goodness though - such a range of possible causes - was great to see a vet’s experience).
