Hi, I'm Gerald - I've been a member of the Raleigh Aqu Soc since 1982, and Pioneer Valley Aqu Soc (Springfield MA) in the 70's in high school. I keep dwarf cichlids, wild-type bettas and gouramis, gobies/gudgeons, tetras, pencilfish, barbs, hillstream loaches, killies, pygmy sunfish (my avatar), darters, shiners, dace ... anything smallish and interesting.

Thanks Liz. Actually, I was searching for James River Aquarium Society to send them our Raleigh (RAS) event info, and found CVAS instead. Dennis Bragg of JRAS has been sending his event info to our club, and I wanted to do the same.

Dennis said JRAS is developing a website too but it's not up and running yet. I hope CVAS and JRAS can share ONE forum. Having too many forums dilutes the community and the expertise. Raleigh started its own forum a year ago, but hardly anybody uses it, since CarolinaFishTalk (mainly salt) and the Charlotte CAAS (mainly fresh) forums were already well established.

In the 80s - 90s I used to stop at Azalea once or twice a year coming back from DC/MD. That's where I first found dwarf pikes, licorice gouramis, darter tetras, and lots of other new & cool fish I'd never seen. Glad to hear they're still in business.

I'm planning to send posters for the RAS Carolina Aquarium Workshop (Feb 15-17) to the fish shops listed in your forum, and any others you can send me addresses for. (We want to send them to shops that serious freshwater hobbyists go to; not salt-only stores or big-box chains that won't allow club posters).

Hey Gerald - WELCOME!

What type of Apistogramma are you keeping?

I bet Azalea hasn't changed one bit since you were last there, when it works why change!

Here I am -- sorry, been super busy lately, and my fish havent been getting much care lately either. The only Apisto I have now is A. baenschi ("inka"), but I havent been breeding them lately and the ones Ive got left are about 3 yrs old. Sorry to disappoint you. The only fish I'm "actively" breeding (if you can call it that) are those that spawn and grow up in the parents tank with no extra care (Julies, emperor tetras). Good chance there will be some Apsitos at our Feb 17 Raleigh auction from other local breeders and maybe some wild imports from Scott Arney (Fish Warehouse in Hickory NC).

Baenschi - I like them very much and hope to keep them someday.....

I've heard about the Raleigh Weekend - Raleigh and the surrounding area is pretty big - probably draws a large number of aqaurists which always equates to a great event.
