This months gathering at the West Lothian Aquarist Society saw the first sponsored lecture on Rainbowfish by C.E. Fish Essentials ambassador, Alex Carslaw.
This afternoon, Alex Carslaw, undoubtedly the UK’s most dedicated keeper, breeder & conservationist of Melanotaeniidae (Rainbowfish to you & I) hosted his first official sponsored lecture about the husbandry of these wonderful genera at the West Lothian Aquarist Society. Attendees had the opportunity to grasp a better understanding of breeding methods used by Alex and how to successfully propagate these attractive fish (some for the good of their species survival).

Alex’s lecture at the W.L.A.S was well attended
Alex’s work, whether his hours upon hours investing time & money with his fish, or researching, learning and teaching others about the wonderful Rainbowfish of the world, helps to keep an awareness of the need for the future of many rainbowfish to be protected. Some of these species originate from single lakes in what are now ‘developing areas’ and hence being destroyed, polluted or filled with invasive species which are outcompeting or even predating upon these pressurised populations. For some of these fish, their propagation within the aquarium hobby is there only chance to remain on earth…
Great work Alex!
