Report on Sydney Splendens Society April meeting

The meeting on 28 April 2012 was a great success!   David showed us his awesome fishroom with over 140 tanks and containers, and gave a presentation on how to culture infusoria.  There were also many gorgeous bettas in attendance.

For those who didn’t hear, we’ve pencilled in another meeting for July, this time at Holsworthy, details to follow shortly.

Photos taken by members have been posted at Ausqua and also on facebook (thanks, Sarah!):
