October Meeting

It's a still a ways off, but I miss seeing you all already!

October 14, 2017 the Capital Cichlid Association hosts:

Steve Edie

“The Name Game: A Classification Permutation”
- a tongue in cheek take on the ever changing
nomenclature of fish.

Steve Edie has been keeping fish since the Eisenhower administration. (ref: Wikipedia) He has kept almost every kind of fish available, and some that weren’t. He now keeps about 1,100 gallons of freshwater aquariums, with a preference toward Rift Lake Cichlids. He has had good success in maintaining many different species and moderate success at breeding them. He is the past President and Treasurer and current BAP Chair of the Missouri Aquarium Society. He served on the Board of Trustees of the American Cichlid Association, but was paroled after two terms.

He once kept a saltwater tank for about a year, but has promised never to do it again.

Meetings are almost always the 2nd Saturday of the month at JFK HS in Silver Spring. Doors open at 1 PM and meeting starts at 2 PM. We need to be out by 6 PM but usually end by 5 or 5:30 PM...

Hope to see you there!
