The September JRAS meeting will be held September 27, 2023 at 7:00 pm at Logo Advantage, 8007A Mechanicsville Tpke. Mechanicsville, VA 23111. The subject is BETTAS - Betta Fish Varieties Over Time, from Veiltails to Avatars presented by Barbara Day.
Barbara is a passionate hobbyist who has been surrounded by fish and nature throughout her life. Her uncle started the addiction with a few fish tanks in Mexico City that still stand today 30+ years later. Growing up in Cancun provided great opportunities to be close to nature, thus becoming an avid scuba diver and working at an ecological park with several exotic animals.
The obsession continued once in the US by working at pet stores for several years and keeping several fresh and saltwater tanks.
She currently keeps several planted tanks with nano fish and enjoys experimenting with different methods and techniques.
As usual, you may meet with the speaker and members to have dinner at Mexico Restaurant, 7162 Mechanicsville Turnpike, Mechanicsville, VA. 23111 at 5:30.
