February CCA Meeting

February 11thth @ Glenallan Elementary School – 12520 Heurich Road, Silver Spring, MD

Meeting room opens at 12 pm (Meeting to start at 12:30)

Meeting from 12:30-4:30 pm - Speaker begins at 1:30 pm

February Speaker – Christine Keys

Christine will speak about CARES. 

Purpose and Goals

The purpose of the CARES Preservation Program is to create a base stock of conservation priority species through encouraging hobbyists worldwide to devote tank space to one or more species at risk and distribute offspring to fellow qualified hobbyists, while forming an information network where possible between aquarists, scientists, and conservationists.

CARES has four major goals:

1) to bring awareness to the critical situation of fish in nature, while educating the public and stressing the importance of our roles as responsible aquarists;

2) to recognize, encourage, and offer support to hobbyists who maintain species at risk;

3) to share fish as well as data and experiences through notes and manuscripts so that others may learn to maintain those identical and similar species; and

4) to preserve species at risk for future generations.

Christine will share her insight and knolwedge regarding CARES and our club. 

 

SPECIAL ELECTION ANNOUNCEMENT

The pandemic has caused much of the Clubs in-person activities to be cancelled or lightly attended.    Current CCA Executive Board (Board) members have been unchanged for the past several years.  The current President/Treasurer has decided to step down.  As a result, there is a need to elect a new President and Treasurer as soon as possible.    The Board has decided, in a 1/8/23 meeting, to hold a one-time election during the February 2023 general meeting for these two positions.  It is essential that new volunteers step up to fill these two positions.  In addition, there is an open At Large Board position.  

People interested in running for any of these positions should email Abby Siegel at xny1989@hotmail.com by 2/1/23 of their intent.

 

@ February Meeting - My Gorup Auctions will occur. Look for forum message soon.

Upcoming March, April and May Meetings – same location/time speakers TBA.

Need gone by tonight if possible!!!

So I recently found out by a Victorian Cichlid expert that the fish I thought were Tomato Hap sp35s are hybrids which I don’t truly care for. So for this I am letting go of the entire colony. Now these are still gorgeous fish but I just can’t waste anymore tank space on these guys anymore. I have about 20+ male/females all sizes. Trying to empty the tank all at once so must bring buckets. Trying to empty this tank ASAP! Located in Rockville Md.
