    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

    All Items related to 2019 Frag Swap

    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

  11. This year the Reef is making available at the swap only buckets of ReeFlowers Salt for the show price of $55 for a 160 Gallon bucket this is a cash or charge and carry price a brief description follows ReeFlowers Caledonia Reef Salt is produced from natural marine salt and is specially formulated for reef aquariums. Containing no additives, ReeFlowers Caledonia Reef Salt is enriched with high purity grade minerals (kH, calcium, magnesium, potassium and strontium) to facilitate the fast, healthy growth of corals and other reef organisms. In order to preserve the vivid colours of corals, and ensure that reef organisms stay healthy for longer, the trace element diversity within ReeFlowers Caledonia Reef Salt has been formulated with reference to natural ocean water samples. Elements that can facilitate algae formation, such as nitrate, iron and silicate, have been removed. Created using Smart Particle Technology©, to ensure that each preparation results in water with stable values. INSTRUCTIONS To achieve a salinity ratio of 33.5ppt, add 35g of ReeFlowers Caledonia Reef Salt to each liter of R/O water. Stir the water until salt is fully dissolved, then slowly add the prepared salt water into the aquarium ensuring not to pour directly on to live organisms. WATER PARAMETERS at salinity 33.5 ppt Alk/Kh: 3.9 meq/L / 11 dkh Ca: 460 ppm Mg: 1400 ppm K: 420 ppm Make your reservations in advance as there will only be one pallet available at this low price at the show!

    Tank upgrade

    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
