March 2016 Breeder’s Award Program (BAP) Report

Another meeting, another BAP participant. The BAP welcomes Nora Bryan with her first entry of the catfish Corydoras paleatus, which she graciously donated to our monthly auction. The bag of these spotted beauties sparked a bit of competitive bidding. Also generating some competitive bids were BAP donations from Dan Koenig and Chip Hildreth. Dan entered a wild type swordtail (Xiphophorus montezumae) and Chip entered the ever popular zebra danios (Danio rerio). In conversations with Dan and Chip, more spawnings have occurred in their tanks, which bodes well for the membership at future auctions. With eight members entering BAP fish in the first two meetings of the year, we now have over twenty members participating in the Breeder Award Program. Let’s hope this trend continues and it stimulates some veteran members to get active again!
