CCAC August 2nd, 2018 MEETING – Gary Lange “Rainbows ”

August 2, 2018 Speaker Gary Lange– Bio

 

 

Gary has been keeping fish since he was 10 and has been associated with the organized hobby for the last 35 years.  He is a member of the Missouri Aquarium Society (MASI) and has held various positions in the club.  He is a grand master breeder in MASI, and has won “Best Fish In Show” on four different occasions, twice with rainbowfish.

In the fall of 1987 he started the Rainbowfish Study Group of North America (RSG).  He got in fish photography mainly because there weren’t many quality pictures of rainbowfish.  He has had his photos published in FAMA, TFH and AFM and has published several articles for the Aquarium Fish Magazine and TFH.

In 2002 he was the first to import eight new rainbowfish into North America from the world explorer, Heiko Bleher, including the Millennium rainbow, the Zigzag (Glossolepis dorityi) and the dwarf parva rainbowfish.  In 2003 he made his second trip to Australia and did some more collecting while there.  In 2005 he took the rainbowfish collectors dream trip – collecting in West Papua (formerly Irian Jaya), the western portion of New Guinea.  He’s also made trips in 2008, 2010, 2012, 2015 and 2017.  He brought back rainbowfish that have never been seen in the hobby including Chilatherina alleni and Melanotaenia vanheurni.  With these trips he’s collected and brought back at least 15 different undescribed species of rainbowfish.  Along with his collecting partner, Johannes Graf, they are currently working on naming them.  He is currently running over 90 aquariums (~2,500 gallons, 9,500 liters) and keeping over 65 species and locations of rainbowfish and blue-eyes.

CCAC May 3rd, 2018 MEETING – John Krepper “Lake Tanganyika Cichlids”

 

May 3rd, 2018 Speaker John Krepper– Bio

I first started keeping fish at age 12 (1968) and was quickly introduced to the Louisville Tropical Fish Fanciers and participated as a junior
member. I moved from high fin green molly’s to Rift Lake Cichlids in a short time and then settled in Lake Tanganyika in the early 1970’s and have keep them ever since with a break from 1994 to 2005. While in Santa Barbara California I founded the Santa Barbara Aquarium Society in 1979 and in 1985 returned to Louisville I rejoined the LTFF club and was later elected president then served for a few years and was the active president when LTFF sponsored the 1992 ACA convention. I am currently a member of the Circle City Aquarium Club. I have been a member of the ACA during my years in the hobby and regularly attend the ACA convention.

Over the years of keeping Lake Tanganyika Cichlids I have photographed my fish as well as my friend’s fish and will present these photo’s and share my experiences in the hobby and keeping Lake Tanganyika Cichlids in the aquarium. Topics include feeding, territory requirements, water conditioning, general maintenance and good fish pics.
