Howard Preston, a member who rejoined the hobby after a number of years away was a prime mover back in the 1970’ introducing a number of wild livebearers to the hobby from Mexico. The interest in these fish has spread around the world and continues to this day. He has recently collected fish in both Jamaica and Cuba.
Members range from those with a tank or pond and an interest in Koi or Oscars to those with fish rooms containing a variety of fish from barbs to livebearers. Some even keep newts and parrots. A number of members are regular show attenders and we are one of the most successful clubs in this respect. Other members breed fish and some have traveled abroad in the pursuit of tropical fish in the wild.
We have a few trips each year, to Howletts zoo last year
