Hi, I'm a 3rd-year Ecology student from UCM with an interest in wetland ecology.

I am interested in the preservation and conservation of fish. I specialize in various species of rainbowfish and gouramis. I have bred 3 species of rainbowfish (M. trifasciata, kamaka, herbertaxelrodi), and hoping to do more soon. I have also bred sparkling, croaking and paradise gouramis. I am working with endangered samurai gouramis for my breeding project, but it has been difficult. I love nature aquascaping and biotopes, which is a little contradictory in a sense haha.

My other hobbies include photography, herpetology, and sleeping.

Very cool, welcome! Are you from around KC, or just for college? Sticking around after?

I'm always a bit curious about what other fishkeepers do for work.

Yes I'm originally from Blue Springs, but moved down for school. Not sure where I'll end up as I hope to work with MDC or some other conservation team to work with relating to fish. I see many jobs revolving this area is mostly around Columbia or STL, so I might move there if the time comes. But I do hope to stay around KC if possible!

That sounds great! Is there a way to sign up for things to auction off?

Yes, it is pretty easy to do. You just need to sign up at www.mygroupauctions.com. Then link to our club (HAAS) in the My Groups section and then you will have access to all of our auctions. Just start start entering your items for sale on the Oct Date. I recommend getting them in a little early to build up interest and deal with issues you may have. If you make it to our next meeting in September, I can do a quick demo that will save you some time in entering items into the system If you have questions signing up, feel free to give me a call. Mike 913.568.4014

I'll post the rules about selling. They are pretty basic. Thanks for the interest!
