Speaker Bio: Melissa Thunig

Melissa ThunigMy name is Melissa Thunig, I'm from New Jersey and a total piranha enthusiast. I've been keeping piranhas since age 11. Started with the common red bellies but in the last 4 years I dove into the many species of piranha. I currently keep 3 species of the Serrasalmus genus and working on a 4th fish from the Pristobrycon genus. I call myself a professional piranha keeper, not so much an ID expert...yet. I'm getting there. I do own a fairly large group on Facebook called Piranha Universe and I also have ventured into Tik Tok and Instagram. My passion is to teach about these misunderstood fish and giving then the proper care they deserve.

Holiday party is also right around the corner! Details forthcoming.

Looking for driftwood

Need as much as possible. Anyone got driftwood?

FREE to good home: Geophagus steindachneri "alto sinu" males

I took 3 juvenile fish from the tank of a friend who died back in June. They have matured and all 3 are (very handsome) males. They cannot be housed together, nor should they be housed with other small Geophagines (just asked the beat-up Biotodoma in my 40 long).

I need to part with at least 2 of them. No flippers (you know who you are). I will ask for photos of the tanks you plan to put them in.

Pickup in Damascus MD.
