Open to All; Tues 11/10; Breeding Egg Scatterers; Randy Carey

Hi All,

The Greater Seattle Aquarium Society (gsas.org) is pleased to invite everyone to our November meeting on Tuesday, November 10th @ 7:00 pm PST. Our November speaker is Randy Carey who will be doing a presentation "Breeding the Scatterers": "Breeding the Scatterers - tetras, barbs, rasboras, Oh My!". The presentation will be on YouTube Livestream:

November 10th, 7:00 PM: Randy Carey "Breeding the Scatterers": "Breeding the Scatterers - tetras, barbs, rasboras, Oh My!"
YouTube Open Livestream:


Randy Carey is an enthusiastic aquarist and writer. He launched one of the first aquarium sites and authored the first online aquarium blog in the 90s. Randy wrote a quarterly column in TFH magazine (The Art of Characins), traveled to places like the Smithsonian and Amazon to write articles, and was hired to write the book Tetras and Barbs.

Randy's fishroom grew from a few tanks to nearly one hundred -- a portion for display, and a portion for focused breeding. As he transitions into semi-retirement, Randy is spending more time in the fishroom and developing programs for select species.

His presentation will include photos and commentary illustrating the pattern of scattering strategy as practiced by the characins and cyprinids. As the aquarium is ill-suited to the scattering strategy, the focus on the talk is on what the aquarist must do to successfully breed and rear these fish. This is one of the few talks on breeding egg-scatters currently available to aquarium societies, so we hope you will join us for this unique experience!

This would be a good time to start not forgetting. Randy is one of the best fish breeders I've ever met. He is also a really nice guy, and his photography is excellent. I may watch it myself, as he is always learning something new. He is especially good at breeding Tetras and other Characiformes, which is how we came to know one another.

I have not yet "attended" one of these online events, should be a great one!

I checked in there, im central time and guess I can't count because I thought it was 10pm my time to start. Only caught last few minutes about the food. What I saw was great info. Wish I could have caught the whole thing though.

I thought I was going to miss it. I'm central too, and had to jump on FL real quick to see if it was eastern or pacific. I couldn't remember what Roy had said. Luckily, it was pacific (which makes sense because it's WA), so I was able to catch it. Based on tonight's presentation, I highly recommend trying to catch as many as you can. (I think they mentioned Dec 15th, and in January it's snakeheads. I didn't jot that info down, though.)

Maybe tonight's presentation is posted where you can go back and watch it?

EDIT
LeviS I clicked the link posted above and it took me to it ;)

I hope it is as egg scattering fish are one of my favorites. Ended up with 9 baby lemon tetras one time and been hooked ever since.
