Jenn has been interested in aquariums since childhood, when she would spend hours on end gazing at the aquatic inhabitants of her father's aquarium. As an adult, her first foray into aquatics involved raising Bettas in college. Jenn's interest in fish, and animals in general, is reflected in her field of study - she holds a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science and Biology. After graduation, the fish bug remained - she expanded her aquariums, including the number and type of occupants! Jenn is a long-time member of DCAS, and currently serves as both Vice President and FinFax Editor. Jenn specializes in freshwater planted aquariums, incorporating plants, sand, wood, and rocks into creating the aquascapes of her tanks. She would like to share her experiences and knowledge in keeping planted aquariums in a two-part series. In January, Jenn will discuss aquarium plants, and in February, she will lead a hands-on aquascaping workshop.

Please note it has come to our attention that there are 2 Jennifer Williams that are involved in Aquascaping. Our apologies for the confusion.

Our Speaker is NOT the Jen Williams who is on the BOD of the Aquatic Gardeners Association, and layout artist extrordinaire of their magazine, The Aquatic Gardener.

FinFax Articles Wanted

Please contact Jennifer Williams by January 18th, 2018 for possible inclusion in February publication.
