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:
Around 7:20 PM on February 8th, 2017, president Keith Richardson called the monthly meeting of the New Hampshire Aquarium Society to order by saying, " Let's eat. " With twenty people in attendance the delicious pizzas were quickly distributed and eaten. This meeting was our annual home video night with the added attraction of pizza. Before the showing of the videos Keith had a few announcements. First, there was a brief replay of the fifty-first Super bowl (which really was super) and then comments mostly concerning the annual auction on March 25th.
Following the announcements it was video time. No exact count was taken but there must have been videos from six to eight people. Between munching on pizza and enjoying some really nice videos everyone seemed to have a fun evening. After the videos there was lots of 'fishy' talk along with voting on the bowl show and the best of the best photo show.
The winner of the annual best of the best photo contest was Bob Tyrrell. Nice going, Bob.
The evening ended with the drawing for the raffle, announcement of the winners of the bowl show and the monthly photo contest. The final event was a rather large auction with some beautiful fish and the usual great buys.
Every year there is a drawing from a list of names of people that have submitted articles to be printed in the NHAS newsletter, The Granite Fisher. The award is called The Bill Janetos Editors Award in honor of the long time editor and member, the late Bill Janetos. This year's winner was Don Van Pelt who received a year's subscription to the magazine Amazonas.
The speaker for the evening was our own Don Van Pelt who demonstrated how to build a small glass tank. Probably the most critical tool to successful tank building is a good lubricated glass cutter examples of which can be found online for less than twenty dollars. Don had five pieces of glass and showed how to use GE silicone to seal the tank. The goal of the demonstration was to show that building a tank is quite easy and by doing so you can make tanks to fit spaces that you have available.
The evening ended with the drawing for the winners of the raffle, followed by the announcement of the winners of the bowl show and a larger than usual photo contest. The last event was the monthly auction with the usual great buys. The meeting adjourned around 8:45 PM
