WE ARE ALL ABOUT THE AQUARIUM HOBBY
YATFS is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization composed of local
aquarists. It was founded in the spring of 1972 for the express purpose of
promoting the science of exotic freshwater and saltwater fish and plants,
assisting new hobbyists, encouraging the breeding and displaying of all aquatic
life, and acquiring and dispensing aquatic knowledge and literature.
All persons with an interest in the aquarium hobby are welcomed and invited to
attend two meetings before making any decision on membership.
Our meetings are held the 3rd Friday of each
month (unless announced otherwise).
At the Mineral Ridge Presbyterian Church on Rt
46.

This new talk Joe put together will review various species of catfish spawning techniques, producing fry in mass
quantities using a “fish factory” approach, and discuss failures as well as success in the fish room. There will be
many videos showing all aspects of this talk. Also emphasis will be placed on “Gut Loading” baby brine shrimp
as a high nutritional source for fry. Also, there will be a discussion on resources for finding new species of fish to
spawn.

Discussion will include: Trachelyopterus fisheri (woodcat), Rineloricaria hasemani (Whiptail Catfish),
Rineloricaria sp. Red Lizard Catfish (L010a), Corydoras pygmaeus (Pygmy Cory), Loricaria sp. “Atabapo,
Columbia” Cryng Whiptails (lip brooders), Tatia intermedia (Driftwood catfish), Corydoras sterbai, Aspidoras
