June Speaker – Roy Allen


The adventure in fish keeping began in 1954. My friend, Carl Vischer, and I would catch Tessellated darters and Blacknose dace from a local creek, but things changed dramatically when I went to college and met Bruce Gebhardt. Very quickly we realized that we had mutual interests in fish, and he lived only 15 minutes from me. During the 40+ years of our friendship, we collected from Pennsylvania/New Jersey to Florida. Also during those years, Bruce became the president of the North American Native Fish Association as well as the editor of their publication. Simultaneously, he developed an interest in photography where he concentrated on everything alive during his collecting trips. Upon his untimely death, I became the purveyor of a few trash bags full of color slides which I was able to convert to an electronic slide show. For my presentation, "North American native fish suitable for a 20-gallon long aquarium," we can all witness the results of Bruce's work.

Redhead Tapajos Breeding Pair

Beautiful young adult pair of Redhead Tapajos. $100 will take $80 if picked up by tomorrow.

Looking for: Aspidoras CW052 “black fin”

Due to a horrible heater accident, my modest herd of aspidoras is no more. These go back to a purchase from Eric Bodrock when he spoke to the CCA around 2010. They were sold as Aspidoras cf albater. It is suspected they’re an accidental hybrid when aspidoras were fairly new to the hobby.

If anyone still maintains these, I’d love to chat.


Greetings All

Good Morning All!,

Been a while since I’ve posted. I moved to SW Virginia near Blacksburg and downsized all of my tanks. Thinking about getting back into it a bit more again with some shell dwellers and figured it was time to connect with y’all. I miss the local fish club meetings and the conventions. Glad to see this club is still functioning.


Another Fish HOP!


We are planning another fish hop! For those of you who weren't able to make it before, we've been to two other hops so far, one in Maryland where approximately 12 members joined, and another to Super Cichlids. For this one, we are planning to head down to Richmond to visit four stores and have lunch. We are targeting July 28 and will be meeting at Green Acres Center at 4401 Sideburn Rd, Fairfax, VA 22030 at 8:30AM. There are currently six people interested, but we will also cross post with PVAS. Please post a comment here or send me a message if you're interested in joining us! It's always a lot of fun!

The stores we plan to visit are:
Skoolz of Fish
Azalea Aquariums
Fin and Feather
Click & Fish

ISO: Bucephalandra

Hey plant enthusiasts! I'm currently on the lookout for different varieties of Bucephalandra.

Any recommendations for importers or sellers who offer a good variety of Bucephalandra at reasonable prices, I would greatly appreciate it! Whether you've had a positive experience with an online retailer, local fish store, or a specialized plant seller, your suggestions could really help me out.

Feel free to drop your recommendations below or send me a direct message.
