  4. Paul I would coral rx dip just to be safe. Do you have any asteria in the tank or other tankmates that may have taken a liking to them? You could dip set them back in tank and see how they do for a couple of weeks. if no improvement put them in separate tank for a couple of weeks to see. just an idea
  5. I use the APC battery back up and surge protector Have 3 of them running and only have critical components on battery backup Goal is to keep things stable for 3 hours and after that if I need to start generator I do
  6. Like the list. You will need to consider culturing pods for the pipefish. cardinals and mandarin will save you time and money. May also look at baby brine shrimp as well
  7. Niki and Brian Greatly appreciate you hosting. The bed races and parade were really cool. I know you have a lot to do between nod December. Do not hesitate to ask if you need anything
  8. Lets get a great turnout for this. Anyone else going
  9. Kyle I like the idea and we can make a separate Forum for it on the site. Maybe in conjunction with the retro frag swap.

We hit all three local stores despite all of the construction work. We will probably look to change this up next year as far as the month. The August meeting will be at the Gosport aquarium in Gosport Indiana. This coincides with the Gosport festival. The Festival starts at 9am and runs throughout the day. The aquarium will have a float in the parade that starts at 1pm and everyone is invited to walk with the float. The meeting will run from 4-6. Take a look at what it takes to run a public aquarium. Let’s make a day trip out of this anyone interested in car-pooling try to coordinate it through the thread. http://indmas.org/main/index.php?/forums/topic/18983-august-meeting-gosport-aquarium/ The address for the meeting is 27 East Main Street Gosport, Indiana 47433 In September we will have the Retro Frag swap no tanks no lights no mess.
