May guest speaker Dan Woodland
Dan has been involved in the aquarium hobby since the age of ten. His illness began when his parentís purchased a ten-gallon tank where he spawned black mollies for the first time. At that point he was completely and hopelessly infected with the tropical fish hobby. Dan has kept many different types of aquatic life including: salt water fish, turtles, indigenous Ohio species, and amphibians but, has turned most of his attention to Cichlids.
Active in his local fish club, the Ohio Cichlid Association, for the past 20 years Dan has held the positions of President, Editor, Program Chairman, Librarian, and is currently Vice-president. Maintaining over 1500 gallons of water in his self-built fish room he has raised and bred a wide variety of animals including some of the largest Cichlids.
Since 1998 Dan has traveled to Central and South America annually in an effort to inject new specimens into the hobby as well as taking a small part in the preservation of troubled Cichlids through captive breeding. His 2002 trip was truly an "Adventure in Panama" where his collecting party was stranded on a remote beach overnight with no food, water, or dry clothes. In 2003 Dan traveled to South America where a wealth of new fishes was found.
Dan has written articles on his adventures, breeding cichlids, and other aquatic interests appearing in Cichlid News, Aquarium Fish Magazine, Tropical Fish Hobbyist, and the American Cichlid Associationís Buntbarsche Bulletin.
South America: Experience a new adventure in South America, Argentina, and see some new species. This recent trip in June of 2003 yielded many new fishes including Cichlids, pleckos, corydoras and more!
