Description

Breeding fish – getting started This is a look at the first steps in starting to breed fish with a look at why and how to breed in general followed by a look at three specific species.  General information for the beginner, but also includes some insight that will be useful to more advanced breeders.

David is the current president of the Tropical Fish Club of Burlington and co-founded the club in 1989 with his wife Janine.  David is past president of the Northeast Council of Aquarium Societies and still holds several positions within that organization.  He has been an active breeder of tropical fish for over 25 years, at one time concentrating mainly on African cichlids in his 40 tank fishroom.  David and Janine have been active in the NEC Breeder Participation Program and are one of only 5 to have ever achieved the plateau of “Master Breeder”.  David is also involved in conservation and has always kept space in his tanks for several endangered species, ranging from Lake Victorian cichlids to livebearers and killifish.
