Have a passion for plecos? Suckermouth catfish fans in the south-west of England have a real treat in store on Saturday, May 20, as Wiltshire Plecos and the Catfish Study Group join forces to present a very special event, to be held at Maidenhead Aquatics @ Melksham.

There will be a talk by catfish expert Julian Dignall — the man behind the fabulous Planet Catfish website — entitled: Rio Xingu: ‘last chance to see’.

In addition, Mark Walters, who was featured with his amazing fish house in the Spring issue of Practical Fishkeeping, will be giving a talk on his experiences with breeding suckermouth catfish.

Doors open at 10am with the first talk at 12 noon and the second at 2pm, with lunch held in between. There will be experts from some of the leading aquatic companies on hand, plus a raffle with some great prizes to be won.

The event is open to everyone of all ages, so why not pop along and have a great day out?

Maidenhead Aquatics @ Melksham is located within Leekes department store on the A350, close to Melksham town centre. 

You can find it at Leekes, Beanacre Road, Melksham, Wiltshire SN12 8AG.
