CCAC June 6, 2019 MEETING – Dr. Heather Moulton-Meissner speaking on “Fish Diseases”

Dr. Heather Moulton-Meissner is a microbiologist whose work focuses on identifying unusual sources of patient infections in healthcare facilities. This work often involves scrutinizing the environment, such as medical equipment, surfaces, drugs, and water for the bacteria suspected of causing illness. She has also kept freshwater fish for 28 years, with an emphasis on large predatory Central and South American cichlids. Her love of microbiology is reflected in fishkeepinig, where she uses her knowledge to maintain a balanced community of beneficial bacteria in her tanks, while quickly identifying and correctly treating pathogenic bacterial infections in her livestock.

CCAC April 4, 2019 MEETING – Ben Van Dinther ”Aquascaping techniques”

Ben is one of the owners of Blue Fish Aquarium and Aquarium Services. He started keeping fish when he was 8. It was not until he saw a picture of Psuedepiplatys annulatus, the Clown Killi, that the hobby became an obsession. In college he had 10 aquariums and a kiddie pool in his dorm room. He has a degree in Art and a minor in Biology. Aquariums have become the perfect blend of art and science. He is a fellow of the Grand Valley Aquarium Club in Grand Rapids Michigan. He holds top honors in the Horticulturist Award Program at the Grand Valley Aquarium Club. Every aquarium is not just a glass box to grow stuff but also a living work of art.


Free and open to the public.
