2015 Calendar Alerts

We have a couple of BIG events scheduled for early 2015. Normal meetings will be suspended until March.


Snakes Alive! 12 - 18 January at the Australian National Botanic Gardens (Black Mountain).  Join as as a volunteer or visitor as we bring the mysteries of local native fish to the general public. See below.

Snakes Alive! - 12-18 January 2015

CDAS provided a display of seven aquariums of native and invasive fish for Snakes Alive! display at the Australian National Botanic Gardens from 12 to 18 January this year.

This was our first public outing with the ACT Herpetological Society and it attracted a lot of interest.  A very successful event all round.

Join the Discussion on the CDAS Forum

While this web site tries to keep you up to date with news from the club, the best place to ask questions, advertise aquarium stuff for sale and chat with other members is the CDAS Forum.

News from the CDAS Trade Table

There'll be a number of new products on the CDAS Trade Table at the May meeting (20 May 2014) - a new, protein- and beta-carotine-rich fry food supplement called "cyclopeeze" and some extra-special egg tumblers.  Egg tumblers are a great way to care for the eggs of mouth-brooding cichlids and other fish with large, non-sticky eggs - like bristlenose catfish.  The egg tumblers CDAS is selling (for $15) have been produced in Australia as a way to help raise money for The Destiny Rescue charity.

Do you have a CDAS library book?

Our normally mild mannered Librarian, Conan, is getting a bit restless. Please help to pacify him by returning any overdue CDAS library books.

You can always contact him to extend a loan or arrange return outside meetings.
