November 18, 2017 | Rick Borstein: Sixty Tips in 60 Minutes
Rick Borstein is the Webmaster of the Greater Chicago Cichlid Association (GCCA), President of the Chicago Livebearer Society (CLS) and President of the Federation of American Aquarium Societies (FAAS).
Rick was the Chairman of the successful 2006 American Cichlid Association Convention held in Chicago, IL. Rick has spawned over 200 species of cichlids and is one of only twelve people to hold the title of Master Breeder in the GCCA. Rick’s basement fishroom has 36 tanks ranging in size from 5 gallons to 125 gallons. Rick is primarily interested in cichlids and live bearers.
In this talk, you’ll hear and see— in rapid fire fashion— tons of tips to make it easier, faster or more fun to manage and breed your fish. The presentation is picture-driven and offers tips on better ways to feed, change water, pack and ship fish and lots more. Some do-it-yourself projects are included. Best of all, all the tips are published in a concise PDF online for you to refer to after the talk.
