The SKG met at 6pm at Mt Druitt for its annual AGM and BBQ.

The following officials were elected for 2010/2011:

President: Dallas Moore

Treasurer: Colin Stewart

Secretary: David Lo

Publicity Officer: Brad Park

Species Controller: Stephen Mytton

Librarian: Michael Gray

Michael has ordered Norman’s Lampeyes Killiefish (Aplocheilichthys Normani) and purchased 20 fish for $140.  These were included in the raffle.

Batch testing for the finfish has been discussed. 2 phamphlets has been sent in regards to the ornamental fish update from the NSW Industry and Investment.

White Clouds were discussed. It has been proven by Brad that when a fin nip on a white cloud will eventually kill it, because like an ant, white clouds release a chemical that will let others know they are injured

Brad had mentioned he has some native Christmas moss that he will try to get some in the next few meetings
