    AAAA February Meeting Information

    Live Foods: From Amphipods to Zooplankton

    Live foods help keep your fish happier, healthier and more productive. This month's program will show you how to grow your own food, whether it's small or large. Todd Wenzel will make this presentation including lots of new foods and information. There’s even a new way to keep Blackworms… WITHOUT REFRIGERATION!!!

    Todd will be bringing Daphnia magna cultures for this meeting so if you want to try this food, get a bucket of dechlorinated water set out now. That way you’ll be prepared for your new culture. He’ll also bring other starters from the Raleigh members to share with us. Finally, if YOU have any live foods to share, try to bring many small samples rather than a few large ones. Jill Bridges is organizing a group buy for black worms, so contact her if you'd like to order some for this meeting!

    Plan to arrive at 1:00 if you will be registering fish or to bid in the meeting auction which will take place right after the talk. These meetings are open to the public, but we hope that you'll decide to become a member. Membership forms will be available on site.

      Its the biggest daphia, several mms across for adults, bigger than bbs. So Adult fish like swordtails and rainbows and dwarf cichlids that have small mouths and most larger fry.

      If it is in the water and organic in nature, and fits into the mouth, your fish will eat it.

      The few exceptions to this rule are fairly famous... Otocinclus, end of list.
