In-person Meeting: Dave Schumacher

Join us for an in-person meeting! 

Dave Schumacher speaks on “Cyprichromis and Paracyprichromis”

About the Speaker

Dave has been keeping cichlids since he was sixteen. That’s also when he started working in aquarium shops, so his experience with the fish and with the retail tropical fish business both run deep. He was able to save the money to buy what, originally, was one of the first large on-line purveyors of cichlids. Based in San Antonio, he renamed the business “Dave’s Rare Aquarium Fish”, and soon earned the reputation of offering high-quality livestock. He has one of the largest selections of African cichlids in North America, and quite a few catfish (mostly Loracariid and Synodontid species) along with a few other cichlids and oddball fish.

Covid Note

Illinois has mandated masks for indoor gatherings. Please wear a mask at this event.
