March Guest Speaker

Post by LewC » Fri Feb 15, 2013 9:15 am

John Krepper, our March guest, entered the aquarium hobby in 1968. His earliest interests were the larger live-bearers, but he quickly got swept up in the African cichlid craze of the time. During the early 1970s, he began focusing on Tanganyikans, and except for a ten year period ending in 2005, has kept them ever since.

John has been active in the organized hobby from the very beginning, having joined the Louisville Tropical Fish Fanciers as a junior member. As a young man, he moved to California and founded the Santa Barbara Aquarium Society in 1979. Upon his return to Kentucky, he rejoined the LTFF and was eventually elected president.

John, a long-time ACA member, is a fixture at American Cichlid Association conventions. It was during his time as president that the LTFF hosted the 1992 ACA convention.

John has accumulated a great amount of knowledge of, and experience with, Tanganyikan cichlids. During his presentation he will discuss nutritional requirements, tank layouts, water conditioning and general maintenance. He will also share his large collection of photos of Tanganyikans in his own tanks and in fish rooms he has visited.

This talk sounds very interesting Lew.
I think all of us are interested in Tangs,
so it'll be a presentation that will appeal to almost everyone.

...and I just found out that, if things go right, he'll be bringing a few bags of rare Tangs to auction off!

Unfortunately, I was in the middle of a family emergency when I talked to him, so I didn't have time to chat. I guess we'll have to wait and see! If I hear more, I'll let you know.
