Speaker Meeting - Michael Liu

12:00 PM - 4:00 PM

deKoven House Community Center,  27 Washington Street, Middletown CT

Michael Liu – Bio

Most of you knew me fairly well. I’ve been keeping tropical fish since 1983. I quickly developed an interest in Cichlids and one tank turned into 2, then 3, then 4, then 5 . . . you know the story.

 

It turns out there are a lot of cichlids and I wanted to keep them all! My interest narrowed to New World cichlids and I’ve bred most of the cichlids that I’ve kept in my tanks. I’ve also kept African Rift Lake Cichlids, some West African species, and a few Madagascar species.

 

Since 2013 my interest has shifted to the cichlids of the Lake Victoria basin. Virtually all of the cichlids from this region are threatened by conditions in their waters. I started with one tank dedicated to a Victorian species, but keeping Victorians resulted in me trying to find other rare and endangered fish from little-collected locations in Africa.

 

It is through the New England Cichlid Association that myself and fellow members have been able to acquire some Uncommon Cichlids From Africa, which the topic of my presentation. Now most of my fish tanks are home to many species of these cichlids.

 

What started as one tank for rare species has turned into 2, then 3, then 4, then 5 . . . you know the story.
