Jed Terc presents "How I Keep and Breed Livebearers"

About the Talk

In this talk I will discuss some of the ways I constructed my fish and how I run it. I will cover some of the fish I keep and how their tanks are set-up. I will also cover in detail the successes I’ve had with my summer tubs.

About the Speaker

I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and became interested in fish by going fishing with my dad when I was young. I kept 1-3 tanks from when I was a kid into my 20s. I earned a bachelor’s degree in environmental science and a master’s degree in landscape architecture. Took a break from fish keeping while starting a family and moving to Milwaukee from Chicago. Got the itch to start keeping fish again and set-up a tank “for my family.” Set up an old tub with platies and fell in love with them. Discovered the the CLS and attended a talk from Dr. Lyons on the fish of Teuchitlan. Soon after I built my fish room and went from 3 tanks (60gallons) to 16 tanks (480gallons). I now keep 13 species of goodeids and several other livebearers.
