June 2005


The May/June eReport is out and the July/August is being worked. For info and updates on the Goldfish Report, take a look here for info from the editor on upcoming issues of the Goldfish Report and the publication schedule.

If you have let your membership lapse or have been thinking about joining the GFSA, now is a great time - here is a form you can print. To submit material for the Goldfish Report to editor Matt Lyon, please see the updated society contact info. Articles and photos in electronic form are particularly appreciated.

The current line-up of people filling the GFSA offices is on the society officers page. 

Interested in joining the GFSA but still not sure? We have two sample Goldfish Reports available to download, to demonstrate that every issue is packed with thought provoking information and pictures available nowhere else. We are also promoting an electronic membership option that significantly lowers the cost of membership.

Lessons Learned "Quick Hits"

We are soliciting short lessons-learned from hobbyists: events that possibly left you sadder, but measurably wiser. Have a good one? Please send it to the  . Here is a submission from Gary Hater:

Instead of putting a heater in my brine shrimp incubator I have experimented with a less expensive method. I put rock salt or sea salt, in the correct measured amount, in the container and then fill the container with warm water (@100F), and then incubate at room temperature. This results in no power usage and less mess. Eggs hatch in 20 to 30 hours. After harvesting one or two feedings from my brine shrimp incubator, I refill it with fresh water to extend the last feeding.
