  • ***FREE Lecture*** Presented by GSAS (Seattle) Gary Lange - May 10th "Rainbowfish"

    **Tonight! FREE Lecture** Presented by GSAS (Seattle)
    Gary Lange - "Rainbowfish Collecting in New Guinea"


    Gary Lange has been keeping fish since he was 10 and has been associated with the organized hobby for the last 30 years, and is very active in the Missouri Aquarium Society (MASI). He started the Rainbowfish Study Group of North America (RSG) in 1987. His photos and articles have been published in all the major aquarium magazines.

    In 2002 he was the first to import eight new rainbowfish into North America from the world explorer, Heiko Bleher, including the Millennium rainbow, the Zigzag and the dwarf parva rainbowfish. In 2003 he made his second trip to Australia and did some more collecting while there. In 2005 he took the rainbowfish collectors dream trip – collecting in Papua, the western portion of New Guinea. He made another trip back in 2008, recollecting Melanotaenia praecox. A third trip was made in 2010. He brought back fish that have never been seen in the hobby including Chilatherina alleni. On this last trip alone, four new species of rainbowfish were brought back and wait a scientific write up. He is currently running over 90 tanks and keeping over 65 species and locations of rainbowfish and blue-eyes.

    Gary's talk with be Adventures in Paradise - Collecting Rainbowfish in New Guinea, which will deal mainly with his first two trips to Papua.

            Hi All,

            Wow! GSAS had a "Member's Only" meeting and Potluck last night where Gary Lange did a presentation that was great! It was about his 3rd trip to Papua and the four new species of Rainbowfish he collected. After the presentation some of the eggs of the extremely rare species he collected were auctioned to the members present.

            But don't worry, there is more to come! Tuesday night (5/10) is our regular meeting that is open to the Public and Gary will be doing his "Adventures in Paradise - Collecting Rainbowfish in New Guinea" presentation. Visit the GSAS.org website for time and location information. And yes, there will be more eggs available after the presentation along with our regular "mini-auction" of member's fish and plants.

            And an FYI for our Canadian friends, Gary Lange will be speaking on Wednesday night (5/11) at the Vancouver Aquatic Hobbyist Society – VAHS and will have some Rainbowfish eggs for that meeting as well.

            I hope we see you on Tuesday night!
