Not to be missed! Gary is a great photographer, tells good stories and will share some of his adventure with us. Plus he is bringing rainbowfish eggs for us to auction off. Please see his article in the Oct/Nov issue of In Depth ( all past issues are here http://www.tfcb.org/in-depth/ ) on how to get ready for taking care of these.

TFCB thanks Karen and the Pet Advantage for a very successful, educational and fun evening!
Karen Randall, “Practical Aquascaping” and “Nano Tanks”
Sunday March 18, 5:30PM
In Cooperation with The Pet Advantage, Best Western Conference Center
Door Prizes – Free Admission
Have you ever thought of trying your hand at a planted aquarium and didn’t know where to begin? Or worse, tried some plants in your existing tank and failed miserably? Karen will teach you how to meet your plant’s basic needs, and how to be successful with a planted tank, whether it is a low light, low maintenance “planted fish tank” or a top end tank designed to support the most demanding plants.
Having Fun with Nano Tanks
The title says it all! These little gems have become increasingly popular, and with proper set-up and maintenance, can be very stable long term. Just be forewarned – A nano tank on your desk can also be a huge (if fun!) distraction!
