  • Christel Kasselmann Presentation On Aquatic Plants Co-Sponsored by GSAS

    Hi All,

    Just a heads up that you might want to schedule a visit to Seattle on September 15th, 2012. Additional details will be forthcoming once the exact venue has been chosen but we anticipate renting a location that should be able to seat 200 - which means there will be room for non-members.

    If you are not a GSAS member, but would like to attend, you may contact me at:
    Seattle dot Aquarist at gmail dot com

    GSAS will compile of list of non-members that wish to attend. Once the venue has been finalized, probably in the spring, we will notify those on the list and advise them how to confirm their reservations.

    We hope to see you in Seattle next fall!
    -Roy

      Did she ever get her book, the one that everyone wanted at the AGA convention, converted to English? If so, could you tell me how I could get one?
      Thanks

            Hi Jerry,

            I checked with Erik and Kathy Olson, they said it has not come out in English yet, but they are still hoping! I think they have the German edition.

                Hi Jerry,

                Erik and Kathy heard from Karen Randall, who has accompanied Christel K. on several explorations, that the negotiations are continuing between the German publisher and the publisher that wants to translate it into English......all is not lost!

                  Sweet. I have met Karen during the AGA convention here in Miami last year. She is also a FB friend so I will ask her. Thanks for poking around for me.
                  Thanks

Remember, September 15th is just around the corner and if you are going to be in Seattle and wish to attend this once in a decade event start planning now! If you are not a Greater Seattle Aquarium Society (GSAS) member you are still welcome to attend, however to insure a seat you need to contact me at:

                          seattle.aquarist at gmail.com

                          Biography

                          Christel Kasselmann is an internationally recognized expert on aquarium plants. On more than 45 expeditions during the last 30 years into the tropics she studied the requirements of aquarium plants. She has published over 350 articles about aquarium plants in Germany and over 50 articles in foreign countries. These articles deal with the origins of water plants and their growth in their natural environment. Moreover, she described several new species and varieties. For about 30 years Christel Kasselmann has been the editor and the chairwoman of the internationally recognized Aqua Planta magazine on aquatic plants. She wrote four books which were translated in about 10 languages; two of them “Planted Aquariums” and “Aquarium Plants” (Krieger Publishing, Florida) were translated in English. In 2010 the last edition of “Aquarium Plants” was published in Germany with over 450 described species. At home she cultivates six large planted tanks with 4000 Liters (1060 gallons) in total.

                          About the lecture
                          With my presentation on "New and rare aquarium plants" I would like to take you on a journey around the world showing you interesting aquarium plants at their natural habitats (ecology), discuss water values ​​and the cultivation of these aquarium plants in tanks. I prefer the traditional growth style known as the Dutch plant aquariums and I will show you many pictures that demonstrate how beautiful tanks can look like. As the title of the lecture implies you are going to see many pictures of new and unusual aquarium plants. Join me on a journey around the tropical regions of the world looking for interesting aquarium plants. I will give my best to entertain you!


                          After my lecture I would like to discuss aquarium plants, their needs in the aquarium and in nature: light, water, substrate, temperature etc.
