Our speaker bios and photos are all up! Please go visit the speaker page and read all about them. Some of the speakers we've seen present at past conventions, and most of them are new to the NEC. Some are local, and some are not. Our speakers will talk about fossil fish, cichlids, cories, aspidoras and brochis, native plants, killifish, livebearers, saltwater aquaria, ornamental fish diseases and diagnoses, and tips for your fishroom.
Thank you from the NEC to Mo Devlin for graciously donating the background photograph of of the adult
Parachromis managuense with fry. The photo certainly enhances our new website!

The NEC is now accepting submissions for the 2013 Betty Mueller Award…
The award will be presented at the 2014 NEC Annual Convention…
The Betty Mueller Memorial Award:
This special recognition is given to individuals who, over the years, have given overwhelming dedication and support to the aquarium hobby and to the Northeast Council of Aquarium Societies, Inc.
The rules are very simple:
Your club or any NEC member can nominate up to three persons a year.
Each nomination should be accompanied with a paragraph explaining why you feel this person is qualified. You cannot nominate anyone who already has received this honor. A committee of persons who have received the honor and are still active in the NEC will make the decision.
