APRIL MEETING. The Garden of Eder
April 8, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
April Meeting! Friday the 13th! presenting The Garden of Eder!
Grant Eder, owner and operator of The Garden of Eder, has been breeding shrimp for four years. Placed three times in the first International Shrimp Competition held in the United States in 2016 and another in 2017. He currently has over 75 different varieties of dwarf freshwater shrimp which he and his fiancée Shelby Kaye Brown house in 175 tanks ranging from two gallons to their 75-gallon planted tank dedicated to just for dwarf fresh water shrimp. Grant was born in Hawaii in 1991, but at the age of three moved to Florida and grew up near many different water sources. As a kid, he would catch ghost shrimp at Weeki Wachee Springs as well as crayfish in local lakes. As a teenager on his trips back to Hawaii he would catch crayfish and plecos in creeks and streams, and net banded coral shrimp at night on the docks. Always surrounded by such beautiful water bodies populated by such interesting inhabitants, many invertebrates, Grant was inspired to pursue his passion — breeding exotic animals, including chameleons and axolotls, as well as aquascaping. Grant entered his first aquascaping competition (Aquarium Beautiful) at the Florida State Fair in 2017 and was honored with the award of Grand Champion. In 2018 took home First and Second place in planted pro and First place in Nano. In addition to breeding and aquascaping, Grant enjoys teaching and spreading the hobby.
Grant will be bringing shrimp to sell!
If anyone wants to purchase product from him ahead of time., he can bring it with him to the meeting, thus eliminating shipping costs for those orders.
Grant will be aquascaping a 10gal. Shimp Tank, provided by JBJ Aquarium products, and About Fish, Inc. The tank will be auctioned/raffeled off at the end of the meeting!
