Not that I am newbie in all this, but the past few years have really limited my time in the fish room. Thanks to a generous hobbyist (Barry Durst) who sent me some white worms, there was a packet of N. guentheri eggs in his package. They were picked in June and normally I would only hold them for two months, these were ready to pop at 3 months. So I placed them in water last night and this morning woke up to small hatch of N. guentheri fry! Thankfully I use BBS for my adult fish as well as […]
After some consideration, I have decided to try something new. Within the next couple of days, I intend to link all interesting news that comes my way via the web including Facebook posts, pictures and other website information. In other words, I want to make Killienutz Online a central place to find out about all the latest about killies. While I may use some thumbnails to identify the stories, the link will take you directly to story/pics on their original locations. I will only create a link title. To add to this, I am hoping some of […]
While some of my friends would probably hope it means I am working on my character flaws, I really mean I am making modifications to KillieNutz Online. My goal is to make the system more streamline as well as easier to use. I created a ton of pages over the years and most are still viable, but I want to make them easier to use for those who need information, both hobbyist as well as scientific. On top of that I want to get back to the original goal of providing a current news and information site for our […]
Last night, like every Tuesday night, members of UNYKA got together on ZOOM and had a great discussion about collecting natives, fish room work and a few other items. It was a small meeting compared to most with only four of use in attendance, but we still had a great time. Since the COVID pandemic, it has become our primary way of contact as a group. We do welcome fish hobbyists from outside the club and you can always find the link listed on http://UNYKA.org . We start at 7:00PM, but the link is usually active around 6:30PM.
11/27/2020 – Just a reminder that UNYKA has planned a ZOOM meeting for Tuesday, Dec. 1 at 7:00PM. I will send out the info on connecting on the mail list. If anyone outside of UNYKA wished to join, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Nov. 18, 2020 – I am thrilled to be the speaker tonight at the Central New York Aquarium Society (CNYAS) in Syracuse, NY. Much as I would enjoy spending the evening with my friends there, unfortunately this has to be a ZOOM presentation. Of course I am more than happy to do whatever I can to support the club. I will be talking about South American Annuals. I have long been a fan of these beautiful killifish and I am now in the process of converting about half of my fish room to SA annuals – actually a much […]
