About the talk

Gene Anderson has been breeding domestic livebearers since 1971. Over the years, Gene has learned about genetics with the goal of obtaining the color, finnage and form he desires in his fish. Gene has 55 tanks at home of fancy swordtails and platies. Gene also raises bristlenose plecos with his liveberers, too. Gene will discuss the different kinds and nomenclature of domestic swordtails.

Donations for our Table

The primary method we use to raise funds is through sales at the GCCA Swap Meet. We need your donations of fish and other goods to help raise money for the club. Please bring your items to the swap and the earlier the better!
