Ever want to swim with wild Discus?

November 2016 Meeting

When it comes to the hobby of aquarium fish keeping it is many of us keep fish and know little about the history or where the fish come from. Our very own Kapil Mandrekar traveled to South America in search of expanding his knowledge in arapaima fish that he has spent years researching. Kapil Mandrekar is also an avid Discus enthusiast.

While he was in South America he also had the chance to see Wild Discus up close and personal in their natural habitat. Next meeting he will be talking about how he got to swim up close and personal with Wild Discus. Join us as he shares with us his experience with the King of the Aquarium!
