Fish keepers with all levels of experience, from beginners to seasoned hobbyists are welcomed, and refreshments will be provided. This lecture is free and open to the public.

Mr. Lundblad has been in the aquarium industry for over three decades. He is widely known as an expert in the freshwater tropical fish species found in Africa and has maintained tanks of more than thirty African species for well over twenty years. He has given many presentations to aquarium clubs across the nation and internationally and has received numerous awards for his breeding and conservation efforts. Recently, on his latest trip to Lake Malawi, Africa he assisted in the reintroduction of Pseudotropheus Saulosi to the Taiwan reef where the species is nearly gone due to the popularity in the aquarium hobby and overfishing.
