RALEIGH AQU SOC: Thurs NOV 6 -- Paul Pham (Steakman) will enlighten us about keeping and breeding many freshwater dwarf shrimp species and color varieties suitable for home aquariums. He will discuss shrimp nutrition, water parameters, tank substrates, filtration, lighting, and other factors important for success with shrimp. He will also show photos of collecting wild Bee shrimp in Viet Nam.

Paul attended his first "Shrimp Show" in California more than 20 years ago where he saw “exotic” shrimp selling for as much as $800! He moved to Cary, NC in 2005 where he set up a breeding room for discus and shrimp. In recent years Paul has become a major online supplier of the “newest shrimps on the block.” Come and learn Paul’s extremely successful methods of keeping to these fascinating animals. We hope to see you there!

Raleigh Aquarium Society monthly meetings are on the First Thursday each month, 7:30 - 9:30 PM at the NCSU Vet School (corner of Blue Ridge Rd and Hillsborough Street). Monthly meetings are FREE and always open to visitors. From the main entrance lobby go downstairs (under the whale), straight through two double doors, and the South Theater classroom is on the right. The speaker program starts about 8:00. To receive our monthly RAS Meeting Notice & Newsletter by email, send an email to raleighaquariumsociety@yahoo.com with "RAS subscribe" as the subject.

Bring your extra fish, shrimp, plants, and aquarium supplies for the RAS monthly raffle or silent auction. (Raffle items are donated to the club, and you get free raffle tickets. For silent auction items you will get a portion of the selling price). We’re always looking for new RAS program ideas. If you’d like to be a speaker at any of our meetings, or have ideas for a good speaker or topic, let us know.

ALSO: Mark your calendars now for the CAROLINA AQUARIUM WORKSHOP, Feb 13-15, 2015 at the NC State Fairgrounds. This will be our 30th workshop year! Speakers include Paul Loiselle (NY Aquarium), David Ramsey (Atlanta Aquar Assoc), Stephan Tanner (Swiss Tropicals), Linda Dirk (NCSU Vet School), Larry Jinks (RAS), and Rachel O'Leary (MsJinkzd).
