Graham (gpsmart) is our host for the February meeting. For those of you who dont know Graham he has been breeding clowns, dottybacks, mandarins and has even successfully raised Harlequin Shrimp. If you ever wanted to see how the "experts" go about doing things then this is a great opportunity to have a
behind the scenes look.

Graham has 600l display tank in the house. This is basically FOWLR with a few Bubble Tips and fluffy morphs. There is around a dozen fish in there including angels, clowns, dotty backs etc.

Graham has been breeding fish for a few years now with success in clowns (9 species), dotty backs (5 species), mandarins, peppermint shrimp, harlequin shrimp and trochus snails.

Currently his breeding shed contains 19 pairs of clowns (13 spawning, 6 juvenile) spread over 5 systems, 2 growout systems and a larval system. Maximum capacity is currently around 4500 juveniles in growout but there are always some tanks half full or empty. There are around 2000 juveniles out there at the moment.

All stock (mainly clowns at the moment) will be available for sale at the meeting.

As at all MASWA meetings, our test kits & phosphate meter will be there for your use so bring along a water sample. We will be having a raffle with some great gift vouchers up for grabs, and a member door prize will be drawn (bring your membership card to enter!). Drinks available for a small fee. Non-members & visitors very welcome.
