Charlie Mueller has been keeping fish for over 20 years now, and lives in the Pittsburgh area. Specializing almost exclusively on South American fish over the years, he has recently narrowed down his focus to catfish with sucker mouths, from cave spawners to lip brooders. Being a member of the Greater Pittsburgh Aquarium Society has only enabled the addiction to grow even larger. He currently focuses on breeding members of the Apistoloricaria/Rhadinoloricaria, Planiloricaria, Pseudacanthicus, and Pseudohemiodon genera. The presentation will focus on first-hand experience with maintaining, breeding, and raising different species of suckermouth catfish from South America.

For next month, we look forward to a great talk, with fascinating underwater video, by Lee Newman, visiting from Canada. His presentation: “Cenotes, Caves and Fishes of the Yucatan”.

May’s Bowl Show classes: Loricariids (Pleco types) over 6”, Peacocks, and Open New World Cichlids.

Dan O and I visited Charlie a couple of years back and were blown away with the things he was breeding - whiptails of all sort, Tatia and LARGE Plecos! This promises to be a great talk!
