1 3/4th cup of sea salt per 5 gallons (SG 1.014-1.017) is really needed to keep this fish happy, healthy and producing eggs. You don’t really have to worry about “cycling” a tank like you would for salt water either, these guys are pretty much bullet-proof. They eat live baby brine shrimp which stays alive and quite happy in this salty environment. A hydro-sponge filter and a good tight lid to keep the salt in the tank is all you need. Feed adults and babies live baby brine shrimp and that’s all there is to raising and keeping this fish. Easiest Pseudomugil and probably easiest rainbowfish if you are smart enough to use salt.
March 12 will be our big spring auction so get some fish ready to sell. Come support the club.
We also want to thank Nic and his family for their support by letting us use their nice meeting room. Their facility is top notch so if your company needs a quality spot for meeting or presentations call them At the Iberra-Brito centre.
February 25 will be Gary Lange. He will bring some rare rainbowfish eggs and fish for sale. He just recently had a new species of rainbowfish named after him(maybe he will bring those!!!!

I have set up a facebook page under The Great Salt Lake Aquarium Society(can anyone help me figure out how to tag it so people can search GSLAS and have it come up?). Like the site and post fish stuff and possitive club suggestions.
