I'm SO excited to give a talk at the Greater Seattle Aquarium Society on Tuesday, January 12! Kathy Olson has been an amazing contact for the society and I feel so well taken cared of. I am really looking forward to meeting the society members. I will be giving a introductory talk on Bettas ("The Wonderful World of Bettas") and will be covering everything from general husbandry, the local and international organizations and standards for the shows, and my experience with rubra and burdigala. I'm going with the shotgun approach and hoping that it's not too much info!
In addition, I am packing up my grandfather's fish room in preparation for my grandparents to move to the Philippines in the Spring. They are truly an amazing club and are going to come to the house tomorrow and take everything as donation to the club. There is SO much stuff here - really, if you are building out a fish room and you are in the Seattle Area, come to the meeting! Most of it is brand new or gently used! My grandfather took very good care of his fish room :) I would also love to meet you!
