Chris Carpenter

Shell Dwellers From Lake Tanganyika

Chris Carpenter is the vice president of the Grand Valley Aquarium Club in Grand Rapids Michigan. Chris has won awards, such as Breeder of the year, Aquarist of the year, Master Breeder, Old World Cichlid Specialist, and Master. Chris became serious about the world of fish when he gave up drugs, and alcohol almost 11 years ago. He has learned a lot in the last ten years and focused a great deal of his time in the hobby on the cichlids from Lake Tanganyika, particularly the Shell Dwellers. Chris has kept, and bred many of these species, and is honored to have the chance to share what he has learned with you.

Going to miss this one. Why does the Carnival of Chocolate have to be at the same time?!

Does anyone besides me happen to take regular notes at meetings?
