OUR FEBRUARY 26 MEETING WILL FEATURE MR BOB BOCK.

Bob Bock has been collecting and keeping fish since he was 7 years old, when he brought home two
mummichog from the Hackensack River Meadowlands of New Jersey. Bob likes writing and speaking
about aquarium fish and belongs to all the Washington, D.C. area's freshwater aquarium societies. He is
past president of the North American Native Fishes Association and wrote the "Meet the Hobbyist"
column of Tropical Fish Hobbyist. His main interest is in barbs, danios and minnows, but he has also kept
and bred sunfish, cichlids, corydoras and brochis, livebearers, loaches, and killifish.
In his talk, Minnows and Minnow-like fishes, Bob will briefly survey the 10 species groups formerly
classified as cyprinids, describe their common habits and feature, and explain how to care for and breed
them breeding them.

 
THE TOPIC FOR THIS MONTHS TALK IS CYPRINIDAE.
Keeping and breeding cyprinids reviews the major cyprinid families from 4 continents, applying what fisheries scientists know about the European and  North American species for insights on keeping Asian and African species.  I give a quick overview of  the behavior and habits of these temperate and subtropical species in the wild, and use this as a basis for helping the hobbyist keep and breed them.
