SWMAS Fall Auction - Sunday, October 7, 2018 (flyer)

General Meeting September 7, 7:30


Why Livebearers?

DJ Hemmerlein will be our speaker. "It will be about why you should pick livebearers, how I got into them, how I care for them and a profile on some of my favorite species". 

General Meeting October 5, 7:30


Right now I am looking for folks to volunteer to bring various live foods to share with other members. What can you bring?

Such as- micro worms, grindal worms, brine shrimp, daphnia, white worms, vinegar eels, infusoria, etc…

If you can bring a live food and enough to share with others (after all- that’s the idea behind this workshop)-

Then we need to know what all is needed for folks to take their live foods home:

Such as-

What sort of container will be needed to take the starter home? Do we need soil, liquids, etc.. in other words what does it take to put your live food together and maintain it.

Once we know- the club will decide what we can purchase and provide from the club and what you as an individual will have to bring.

Please let me know as soon as possible if you can provide a live food and what all it takes to manage it. Once we have a list we can begin planning from there and making adjustments.

SWMAS began in 1978 to support the study, culture, exhibition and education of hobbyists in all forms  of aquatic life.

Each meeting centers around a topic for the tropical fish hobbyist presented by club members or outside speakers. In addition, the meetings include a bowl show, a mini-auction of fish and plants, and a raffle.
