Speaker: Frank Cowherd, "Tips for Breeding Fish"

Our membership is well acquainted with this month's speaker - Frank has been a stalwart contributor to PVAS for decades in almost every category for which someone could volunteer. He is active on a monthly basis with set-up and take-down of the meetings as well as running the monthly raffles. He is a Director on the PVAS Board and has been active in every CatfishCon since its inception in 2004 and currently serves on the Steering Committee for CatfishCon 2016.

Frank got started as a teen by keeping fish he caught in the creeks in the watering trough. He continued keeping and breeding fish through college and a career in chemistry. He has bred and raised livebearers, bettas, killies, catfish, plecos, and cichlids. He attributes part of his success to learning to culture a number of different live foods. Frank will present an overview of his current fish room and some of the "secrets" to his success.

PVAS meetings are held at the following location in the cafeteria:

Green Acres School
