Greetings Fishy Friends!
The New Hampsire Aquarium Society is a non-profit group made up of people that have a common interest in marine and freshwater life and systems.
We meet the second Wednesday of every month September through June at the Somersworth High School. Each meeting has a speaker, Bowl Show, Photo Show, raffle and mini-auction where those present can bid on interesting species that are difficult
to find in local stores as well as used, but still useful hardware. The club also runs a Breeders Award Program and Horticultural Award Program to recognize and celebrate the propagation of fish and aquatic plants.

The Last Meeting:
On October 12, 2016 there were sixteen people present when president Bob Tyrrell called the monthly meeting of the New Hampshire aquarium Society to order. Bob started the meeting by welcoming the Nick and Heidi back after a long absence and then moved on to some announcements. There was a brief discussion about the upcoming club order with Wetspot with a description of how it was going to work. And again Jennifer requested suggestions for a venue for the annual banquet. Jennifer also discussed the use of an electronic format for the photo. For those wishing to enter the photo contest and without printing capabilities they can email their photo and have it displayed electronically. More info to follow. October is dues month and Jennifer, our treasurer, was kept busy collecting all that money.
The speaker for the evening was our own John Pearson (That is newly engaged John Pearson and Page, Congratulations to both of you!) John gave a photographic tour of the Adventure Aquarium of Camden, New Jersey. John's photos ran from Penguins to Hippos. It has got to be a special aquarium when they include African Hippos in water with a swarm of African Cichlids feeding off of the skin of those giant beasts. This is the second presentation given by John sharing his visits to varied aquarium sites. There are many more aquariums in the world and we hope that John will continue to visit them and share his adventures with NHAS. Thank you John and again, congratulations on a smart move with Page.
The evening ended with the drawing for the winners of the raffle, followed by the announcement of the winners of the bowl show and photo contest. The last event was a large monthly auction with the usual great buys. During the auction it was announced that Don Van Pelt had brought in a bag of Corydoras aneus that he had bred from the fish distributed by the club for the breeding contest. The prize was a bag of Kensfish food and a plaque. The meeting adjourned around 9:00 PM.
