GCCA's Next Meeting is Sunday, April 8th

Larry Johnson speaks on "Swimming with Cichlids in Lake Malawi"

larry johnson 200In October 2016, Larry will make his sixteenth visit to Lake Malawi. His talk will cover his latest trip to Lake Malawi and will feature hundreds of quality underwater photos seen nowhere else.

Larry was first introduced to Lake Malawi cichlids in the early 70’s and has been keeping and breeding them since then. The fish room has got bigger over the years and was consumed by these beautiful fish. “Tropical Fish are a full time job for me”. He presently runs almost 100 various size aquariums at home, and has been importing Cichlids from Lake Malawi since 2006.

During September 2013 Larry assisted Ad Konings (thru the ‘Stuart M Grant Conservation Fund), along with others, in placing Ps.saulosi back on Taiwanee Reef. These fish are being produced by Stuart M Grant Ltd which operates the largest Cichlid Export facility on Lake Malawi. During September 2014 Larry supervised the placement of Ps.saulosi back to Taiwanee Reef again, along with other Cichlid Enthusiasts, who were willing participants. The plan for 2015 was much the same as in 2014, with some participants from last year joining in again!

Larry also contributes time as a moderator on several forums and is a contributing photographic author to The Cichlid Companion Room and Buntbarsche Bulletin for the ACA.
