Aquarium Class at Edmond Library

There’s more to setting up an aquarium than filling it with water and sprinkling in some spirulina flakes.

If you’re new to the hobby of aquarium fish, come to the Edmond Library, 10 S. Boulevard, on Saturday, December 13, for a free event called “Setting Up Your First Aquarium.”  Representative from the Oklahoma Aquarium Association and Aquariums of Edmond will be on hand from 1:00 to 2:00pm to answer your questions and offer advice.

“Creating a great new environment for your fish is easy,” said Edmond Library manager Karen Bays, “but it isn’t as easy as some people think it is.  There are a lot of ways to go wrong so just about every novice needs a little help to get started.”

In addition to instruction and the general Q&A, there will also be a drawing contest for kids, live aquariums on display, books, photos, and information.  A raffle will be held and the winner will receive a 14 gallon Biocube Aquarium.

“Setting Up Your First Aquarium” is designed for ages 6 and older.

Call the Edmond Library at 341-9282 for more information.
