  7. And one more shout out to Sanjay Joshi whose presentation before the swap started was so well received. For those that do not know speakers such as Sanjay do not come to these event for money. Instead they come for their love of the hobby and wanting share what they have learned through their years of experience. If you attended his presentation and learned something send Sanjay a quick note to thank him for his time and efforts. Mike
  8. Check out the INDMAS facebook page for some great pictures from the SWAP yesterday. I personally want to thank all the vendors, hobbyist members and staff without all of you the best swap in Indiana would not have been possible. A big shout out to our Platinum Event Sponsor The Reef whose time and generosity assisted both the club and many other vendors that attended. From bringing water for vendors and hobbyist use, to the grand prize reef tank . And the under 13 reefer that won the innovative marine tank donated by Premium Aquatics had the biggest smile on his face when he came up to claim his prize. A great 2019 swap and the planning begins for an even better 2020 swap! Mike

  14. Ryan You can never do enough planning! I look back and see how different the final variation was compared to what I sketched out originally. I did use the Dr Tim method of rapid cycle which worked very well. I also used all new sand and the rock work was either all new and cured or some pieces out of old tank nuked and put in to new tank. I still have that Brut for you and if you need to borrow anything else let me know
