January General Meeting and Fish O Ramma

Well it feels like it’s been a long time since I made a post, a little too long!  Sorry for the delay! The holiday season was a bit time consuming this year!  First things first the January Winter Fish O Ramma will be held on Sunday, January 12th at New Berlin Ale House, 16000 W. Cleveland Ave., New Berlin, WI.  The swap will be open from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Be there for great deals on fish, food, aquarium supplies, and more!

Coming up next is our January General Meeting which will be held on Friday, January 17th at Hoffer’s Tropic Life on North 76th st. and Good Hope Rd. in Milwaukee.  Meeting starts at 7:30pm and this month will feature Matt Beilski giving his Do-it-yourself LED talk and demo! Here is a little more detail:

“why switch to LED lighting? ….more important ,why build your own LED light?
money money money ….LED lighting can save money on your electric bills, allowing that extra savings for the important things like fish!
we all know that commercially available LED lights are expensive
what if I told you that you could build your own and customize it for your specific needs ,at a fraction of the cost of a commercially available one? “

Here is Matt’s Bio:

“I have over 30 years in the hobby ,i am a father of 3 and been married for going on 25 yrs
I am basically a general interest hobbyist. I breed most of what I keep, ranging from catfish, killifish, to cichlids and tetras. At this time, I have 70 tanks  in a  fish room of about 520 sq ft, I have automated for the most part the water changing and lighting in the room. i am always in the process of modifying or adding to the fish room ,to me this is half the fun.
I work as a mechanical contractor,and been so for over 28 yrs , i am currently the service manager  for a local refrigeration contractor .i draw my expertise in lighting from my work experience .I have over 2000 points in the local clubs breeders award program and I 
have served as president ,on and off for the local aquarium society for 8 years now.”

Hope to see you all there for a great first meeting of the new year!
