"Cool Fish You Haven't Tried.... Yet"  Adam Blundell


Brought to you by: WMAS

5/4 at 7pm
Rose Garden Building 
Sugar House Park
1601 East 2100 South
Salt Lake City, UT



 

There are about 28,000 species of fishes on Earth. While only about 3,000 species inhabit coral reefs; those 3,000 are immensely diverse. Yet, the captive aquarium hobby focuses on about 500 species. This leaves many ignored animals that are well suited for captive care. This lecture will introduce you to some ethically well suited animals that are available in the ornamental trade, which are prime candidates for further studies.

Adam Blundell will introduce you these awesome fishes you haven't kept before. He will explain the husbandry requirements you'll need to know to keep your next awesome fish.

Whether you have a nano tank, large tank, or want to set up a new tank- come learn about some cool fish you may want to consider.

As always we will have great treats, cool raffle prizes and some awesome friends and fellow hobbyists!

Reef Legends will be doing their drawing of the Nuvo tank as well.

Keep checking this event thread for more details.

Just some of the cool fish we will be talking about at our meeting tomorrow.

Anyone care to take a guess at their scientific names?

Is 110 slides enough?  Or should I add more?

Whatever you think you can get through in your allotted time and still have people understand your slurred speech is perfect.

Thanks for the awesome meeting Adam. You said you could help us get any of all the fish in your presentation. Can you help me get a yellow elephantis Tang?

Adam,
Can I just tell you how awesome you are?! I really enjoyed your presentation last night. I felt that you took just enough time through each slide. You always inspire me to do something outrageous with my 55. And since my 55 is currently overgrown with HA it gives me incentive to act on my impressions. Where can I find sailfish bennies?

Big congrats to the woman who absolutely cleaned up in the raffle department.  She definitely got her moneys worth.

I'll post the video of it soon. I tried the other day and the program I was using to add them all together took a few hours to get it worked and then it didn't work.
