Program, Mike Hellweg ‘Nano Fish” This talk introduces the popular so-called Nano Fish - small fish from several families that have become wildly popular in the past decade. Sometimes, however, hobbyists assume that just because fish are tiny, they can live in tiny tanks. That’s not always the case! We’ll look at the nano tanks themselves, and about 3 dozen nano species including their care, feeding and even their breeding, which is sometimes simpler than I might think. Mike Hellweg has published books on live foods for fish and has two more books coming out later this year. He is an accomplished fish breeder, and has spawned over 475 species representing 33 families of fish. Mike will be joining us via Zoom from the St.Louis area. The meeting is in person at the Hiawatha Comm. center, with Mike’s live presentation projected. This will be interactive, if you have questions, Mike is happy to answer them.
