Nick Zarzeczny was born into fishkeeping. His dad, Steve, is one of the founders and owners of RMS Aquaculture in Middleburg Heights, and Nick has had aquariums for as long as he can remember. For the past 5 years, he has concentrated on keeping and breeding African cichlids, particularly those from the Rift Lakes.

While attending North Royalton High School, he worked at RMS and was elected President of the Science Club. He graduated in 2015. Nick is an avid and accomplished sport fisherman.

The year of his graduation, as Nick says, “The stars lined up” and he was able to accompany his dad on “a once in a lifetime trip” to Lake Tanganyika from June 17th to July 4th. Hosted and guided by Ad Konings, the Zarzecznys explored the Tanzanian coast, stopping off at various locations to snorkel. They visited over a dozen places, including Fulway Rocks, Isinga Island, Mpimbwe and Kipili.

Nick brought his cameras, including an underwater video camera, and will be sharing photos, videos and memories with us during his talk, which is entitled “Adventure on Lake Tanganyika”.

Next month, Andreas Tanke, will visit from Germany. The tentative title of his talk is “The Plecos of South America”.
