August 20, 2016 | Steve Edie: The name game: A Classification Permutation

Edie-picSteve Edie has been keeping fish since the Eisenhower administration. (Look it up) He has kept almost every kind of fish available, and some that weren’t. He now keeps about 1,100 gallons of freshwater aquariums, with a preference toward Rift Lake Cichlids. He has had good success in maintaining many different species and moderate success at breeding them. He is the past President and current BAP Chair of the Missouri Aquarium Society. He once kept a saltwater tank for about a year, but has promised not to do it again.

His talk “The Name Game:  A Classification Permutation”  Is a tongue-in-cheek take on nomenclature with an emphasis on Cichlids.

Also at this Meeting:

Club vote to amend the bylaws
