Breeder and Horticultural Award Program Corner

Thanks to all those who submitted their BAP donations for the March Auction. Kudos. Welcome Jan A. Nolta and Charles Brennerto BAP.

The Sacramento Aquarium Society's (SAS) Breeder Award Program (BAP) and Horticultural Award Program (HAP) encourages the propagation and dissemination of fish and aquatic plant species, exchange of information regarding their propagation and husbandry, and serves as a means for recognizing the accomplishments of club members toward these goals. Participation in the BAP and HAP enhances member's enjoyment of the aquarium and pond hobby.

Spawning and Plant Reproduction reports are now being added to the website to share the information with other hobbyist. These reports can be referenced to find out information on how other breeders have bred different species of fish, and how to reproduce plants. See the menu to the left for the link to the "Spawning Reports" and "Plant Reports."

With digital photography being easy today, taking a few pictures of your fish, or plants and submitting them in addition to the spawning or plant reproduction report is an easy way to pick up an additional 5 points. If you write an article about your spawning or plant reproduction for the Tropical News and/or website, you can pick up an additional 5 points, for a total of 15 points. If you donate the same species/subspecies after your initial donation, you can earn an extra 5 points.
