June 2016 Program (Thursday, 6/2/16 @ 7:30pm - “Angelfish Breeding and Genetics”

In June, RAS welcomes JRAS president, Lee Shadbolt, to Raleigh. Lee is a lifetime aquarist who began by counting fish and cleaning tanks and filters for his father who was an angelfish breeder. Starting at age 12, he worked 7 years for his family’s tropical fish wholesale store and now currently maintains a small fishroom with discus & angels. He is also a member of PVAS and CCA. Lee’s presentation will be on angelfish, their history in the hobby, a background on breeding, and an overview of their genetics. The breeding discussion will be informative for those already keeping angels, while the genetics discussion will be applicable for other species.
