Dear CAKC Members and Staff:

I just wanted to take a moment to thank the members of the CAKC for their sponsorship of the killifish category at the All Aquarium Catfish Convention 2012 fish show. The winners of the killifish category were:

Class II: Killifish
No Subclasses
3rd Place: Orange australe, Frank Cowherd
2nd Place: Tiko Green, Daniel Cohen
1st Place and Best Of Class: Dwarf Red Gularis, Frank Cowherd

Your sponsorship of the fish show was featured on our website (, in our program that each registrant received, and was featured in a Power Point presentation at the award ceremony where winners were announced.

The convention was a success for us and generated enough funding to stay in business for the next two years for our club, the Potomac Valley Aquarium Society. Funds generated from this convention will support our monthly meetings as well as our special programs to give tanks to needy kids at the holiday season, support exploration and study of fishes in the Amazon, and put tanks in schools and throughout the community. (More information on our programs can be found at:

I am happy to report that we had 212 participants in all, with speakers from the US, UK, Germany, and Heiko Bleher flew in from Milan. Members and convention participants are already asking for another convention in 2014!

Thank you again for your gracious support, and for all you do for the hobby,

Your friend in fish-keeping,

Sherry Mitchell
