MIKE HELLWEG is coming to speak at our Tuesday, June 9, 2015,    7:00 p.m. meeting.    TOPIC:  BREEDING TIPS AND TRICKS.   

Mike has been fascinated by fishes all his life, and has had various fishes as pets since he could barely reach the top of the tank;  he has been successfully breeding and trading fish with local shops since he was 9 years old.   Over the past 40+ years he has specialized  mainly in miniature fishes, and has had successful spawns from various miniature fishes totaling about 400 species from 32 families of fish.  He is the top ranked breeder of all time in the Missouri Aquarium Society, Inc.  (MASI) BAP and the top ranked horticulturist of all time in MASI's HAP.  He credits his success to large regular water changes, keeping live plants in every tank and culturing and feeding an assortment of live foods daily for feeding his breeding stock and for growing the fey of these diverse oddball fish.   

​Mike has given over 250 talks to clubs and groups all over the USA and Canada, has documented many of these keeping and spawning successes in more than 250 articles published in hobby publications around the world, and has had two books on live foods published by TFH Publications.
