All Oddball Aquatics
Capital Cichlid Association Visit April 2004
Atlanta Trip 2003
I was asked to speak at the
Atlanta Area Aquarium Association in Georgia in September
2003. The trip turned out to be a great adventure for me. The
hospitality of the members was outstanding. I spent three days
there, being treated to visits to fishrooms, shops
and the University of Georgia. I huge thank you goes
out to Ken Davis, Ron Reisinger, Mark Powell and all the
members of the Atlanta Area Aquarium Association that made the
trip an enjoyable experience for me.

The following photos are from that
Ron Reisinger stands next to his
large saltwater set-up. Ron maintains a little bit
of everything, including a beautiful planted aquarium in his
computer room. Ron, his wife and two daughters welcomed me
into their home to spend night two of my adventure. Ron also
spent an entire day taking me to shops and his
fellow hobbyist fishrooms. Thanks again Ron!
||Ken Davis standing
between rows of aquariums in his HUGE fishroom....or I should
say fishhouse. He has a building behind his home for all of
his tanks, I'd guess over 2,500 ft. of space and too many tanks
to count! I spent my first night at Ken's place and went
to his workplace, University of Georgia, the following day.
More of the club's members.
Talking fish, of course!
More of the crowd that attended.
In the front center is David Ramsey. I had met Dave a few
years ago at a Killifish event in Ohio...it was good to see
him again. Dave is heavy into Killies, Catfish and planted
tanks. Check out his site if you get a chance: http://www.djramsey.com/
A good crowd turned out for their
monthly meeting. I hope my talk on Cory cats didn't put anyone
Alan Opdyke invited me in to see his
fishroom. Here Alan is along side a row of his tanks...
notice a few of his awards on the wall from his top of the
line, show guppies! Talk about a clean and organized
fishroom, this is a model one for sure. You can find out more
information about Alan and his guppies at: http://www.fancyguppy.com/
Another shot of Alan Opdyke's
fishroom. See what I mean about clean and organized!
Obvious to see how much effort he puts into his work, not only
with his fish.
