    I have them in tall deli cups for now. I labelled them with all the important stuff already, but you can still bring bags for them, that would be good.
    One cup has my adult male, and it has this written on it:
    *NOT FEEDERS*
    *DONATION*
    White mickey mouse platy
    Adult male
    *Great algae eater!*
    The other cup has my 2 young males, bred by me:
    *NOT FEEDERS*
    *DONATION*
    White mickey mouse platies
    2 young males
    *Great algae eaters!*

    Also if anyone is going collecting with Mr. Kent, let him know that there's a good variety of nice looking sunfish around here. I'm not sure exactly where to look but I've seen/caught dollar sunfish and redbreast sunfish. upload_2018-4-15_0-16-46.jpeg dollar sunfish

    that second one would be a bluegill.
    their color patterns seem to vary depending on where you catch em and what they're eating.
    The ones near the docks in little seneca lake for example are drab and greenish-grey with dark stripes, while the big males at the bottom of the lake that are eating more natural foods are prettier with light blue throats, red bellies, and green bodies.
    I've even caught purple ones out of a pond in ohio.

    Really enjoyed the meeting this month, Mr. Kent gave a great talk and brought some amazing fish to donate.

    For anyone who wants/needs to contact Mr. Kent, he gave me a business card, his email address is lawrence.kent AT gatesfoundation.org

    He mentioned that anyone who bought/won a bag of the fish he donated, could email him with questions, or to ask for additional fish if needed. I'm going to start another thread asking the people who got fish from him to post the name of the fish and list any information he gave.

    Next meeting will be May 12th, I think Shawn mentioned it will be about constructing/designing summer tubs.

    No, the talk is about ponds, not tubs. It's by a local contractor who builds and maintain ponds and other water features.

    Caroline, you missed a great talk! It was awesome. People won T-shirts for paying attention to the talk! Lawrence brought 3 or 4 UNDESRCIBED species from Eastern Africa! He gave away a bag of fish from Lake Kiva! Amazing, truly amazing.

    I recorded the whole thing....
