Chris Carpenter, has been a board member of the Grand Valley Aquarium Club in Grand Rapids, Michigan, for many years, and has recently been elected Vice President. He has won several awards, such as Breeder of the year, Aquarist of the year, Master Breeder, Old World Cichlid Specialist, and Master.

Chris became serious about the world of fish when he gave up drugs, and alcohol 11 years ago. He has learned a lot in the last ten years and has focused a great deal of time in the hobby on the cichlids from Lake Tanganyika, particularly the Shell Dwellers. Chris has kept, and bred many of these species, and is honored to have the chance to share what he has learned.

Chris’s talk is called “Shell Dwellers of Tanganyika”, and is packed full of practical tips and demonstrations.

Next month, Charlie Mueller, from Pittsburgh, will be our speaker. Charlie has been breeding plecos that very few other people have been successful with. “Breeding South American Suckermouth Catfish - Difficult or just Different?” will be the title of his talk.

Glad I read this thread because I see he is wearing a shirt that says "super cichlids" Dover Delware. I hope it is a store that is open so I can check it out.

Yes, they are, and they had a vendor table at last year's Extravaganza.
