Join our NEW Facebook groups page.

For our November meeting we will have a very special guest.  We will be joined by Gary Jones, Corporate and Scientific Affairs Manager from Mars Fishcare   http://www.marsfishcare.com

When you consider aquariums, ponds and aquatic environments, Gary Jones can truthfully say, “been there, done that.” As a student he majored in Biology and Business / Marketing. As a college professor, he taught Aquaculture, Fish Health Management and Biology courses. As a businessman, his company manufactured and installed aquatic environments for over 15 years. His work has taken him outside the US boundaries from Hong Kong to Puerto Rico and beyond. Currently and for the past 17 years he has been the Corporate and Scientific Affairs Manager for Mars Fishcare headquartered in Chalfont, Pennsylvania. On top of all this he is a self-proclaimed “fish nerd” and proud of it. Gary has a true passion for his many aquariums and ponds at home and never gets tired of talking about them. Gary Jones is truly an educator and expert in the field. Some say you can’t love a fish, but think Gary can – we know he understands them!

In addition to Gary's talk we will be having our monthly bowl show, door prizes, and auction.  Admission is free and open to the public.

Welcome

Welcome to the Delaware County Aquarium Society (DCAS), where fish-keeping hobbyists and professionals of all ages meet to promote and learn more about care, culture and propagation of all forms of underwater life.

We hope to see you at a meeting in the very near future.
