VAHS September meeting

 The Cichlid Room Companion

Juan Miguel Azas will be our guest speaker on Wednesday September 10, 2014 at the Bonsor Community center in Burnaby at 7:30 pm.

Admission is for members only but you can join at the door for 20 dollars. members are asked to contribute 2 dollars to cover the room cost. all funds go to support the Vancouver Aquatic Hobbyist Society enabling us to bring guest speakers and special events, and promote the aquarium hobby in the lower mainland area.

 

Juan Miguel Artigas Azas is an aquarist in San Luis Potosí, Mexico (the very center of it). He has loved fish since he can remember and has kept them steadily in home aquariums for over 30 years now. His main interest are Central American Cichlids and Mexican fishes, but he is also very interested in any other type of fish.

Juan Miguel is the creator and editor of the Cichlid Room Companion. His love for computers and nature, together with the revolutionary development of Internet was too much for him to let the opportunity to create this page pass along. He has found that the maintenance of a real good home page is a life time enterprise, and he is ready to cope to that.

Juan Miguel enjoys travelling to the natural habitats of the fish he loves, where he obtains underwater pictures of them. He likes to observe them, trying to understand their natural history and relationships. He has managed to obtain a great knowledge on the biology and geographical distribution of the fishes in Mexico. This gives to his conferences an originality and special interest.

Juan Miguel has written many articles on Mexican and Central American Freshwater fish, mainly on cichlids, for several club and aquarium publications. He has also been honored with the invitation as lecturer in fish oriented conventions in several countries, including Mexico, United States, Belgium, Canada, England, Netherlands, Norway, France, Italy Sweden and Germany. Juan Miguel is part of the American Cichlid Association – Marineland speakers program.

Juan Miguel has been awarded the Guy Jordan Retrospective Award 2008 by the American Cichlid Association. The maximum honor this association gives to people who has done extensive contributions to the International Cichlid Hobby.
