Re: Arizona Rivulin Keepers
The first meeting of the Arizona Rivulin Keepers was a success. One of
the first things we agreed on was our name.
Twenty people attended. There was an encouraging mix of old hands and
new blood. Some attendees have been AKA members for over 25 years. We
also attracted visitors from the Dry Wash Aquarium Society, the only
general aquarium club in the Phoenix area, and are establishing a cordial
relationship with them.
Our first auction was tremendous. We had 29 pairs (trios, etc.) of
killies ranging from the old favorites like A. australe and the Blue
Gularis to newer species such as Cynolebias zonatus and Rivulus
fuscolineatus. We would like to thank the Bay Area Killifish
Association, and especially Bill Gallagher, for donating many of those
auction fish. We would also like to thank Bob Schwiegerath for his
generous donations as well.
Peter Unmack introduced a video of last year's conservation trip to Ash
Meadows by the Bay Area Killifish Association and the Tropical
Fish-keeper's Exchange. The video captured the flavor of this unique
habitat with its many isolated waterholes and springs. It was
encouraging to see hobbyists working with the government to preserve
The next meeting of the Arizona Rivulin Keepers is scheduled for
Saturday, October 24, starting at 3:00 and running to 6 p.m. We will be
meeting at the Round Table Pizza at the corner of Ray Road and Rural Road
in south Tempe (Phoenix). Visitors are welcome.
