Western Australia

We had the local monthly meeting in Perth with a couple of great presentations. One on cichlids and the other on aquaponics. Some great door prizes. Picked up some good gear plus a tank heater (almost have enough for a new tank, just need to win some space to put it somewhere).

Sadly still haven't won a fish tank yet.

Last night at society meeting was a quiz on cichlids (plus catfish), then a video on African cichlids (Jewel of the Rift I think).

Got 14 out of 30 on quiz which I was really happy with. Must of soaked up some knowledge attending but not far above one member that keeps shrimp (so perhaps should hit the books next time ).

Movie was absolutely great. Fantastic photography and went for over an hour at least. Couldn't believe how clear the lake waters were.

Congrats on your heater win from the first post. It would be nice if we had an aquarium group locally. We briefly had a lfs shop in town who's owner was going to run some meetings but the shop closed down after a couple of months so the meetings never eventuated.

Thanks! That's a real shame on the shop closure.

The sponsor shops and society committee are great here.

Another monthly meeting covering planted tanks and some multies for auction after. So very tempted but they went very quickly for sale.

I envy you. West Los Angeles had an active aquarium society in the 80s, but it's apparently long defunct. The nearest one now is a long way away.

That's a real shame. I think it is a struggle here as well with a decline in fish keeping (perhaps just due to poorer times).

I'm pretty happy with it here. The society is mainly for cichlids but do cover quite a few tropics and it's interesting to see cichlids from breeders presented. For really quite a small group it's very well organised.

Next month is the auction where I really can't buy anything

Had the monthly society meeting - didn't really want to win anything at raffle table so picked up 3 nets and some almond teabag leaves (must be careful to not leave on kitchen table). Money raised goes towards cichlids preservation so good cause.

Meeting was on photography and fish bagging which was pretty interesting. Got home bit after 11pm so looking for a coffee this morning.

This month we had a meeting talk on breeding cichlids with a few hand-shot videos of Lake Tanganyika. Quite a good night. Next month an auction!

Do you have much trouble getting African cichlids in Australia? I've heard the regulations on fish importation are quite restrictive.
