  1. And the big purchase at MACNA goes to Alan and Scarlet this is a 280 Cade aquarium and it is a beauty Look for Alan to host a meeting next year to show this off. I think we should also start a new annual INDMAS award for Spouse of the year and I nominate Scarlet!
  2. We had a great INDMAS turnout at MACNA this year. I think everyone got to the presentations that they were interested in and made we made great vendor contacts. At the Saturday raffle we had quite a few winners Attached is our Saturday dinner group
  3. INDMAS is the largest saltwater aquarium club operating in Indiana. A lot of the other clubs around the state are no longer operating while our club is succeeding due to our members and the participation that we have. I will not be running for President this year as I firmly believe that after 4 years it is time for someone else to not only build upon what has been accomplished but bring innovative ideas to the club so we can continue to grow and thrive. Want to Give Back? INDMAS is a great reefing community that offers tons of resources for us to keep our piece of the ocean looking at its best. But all of those resources are carefully and diligently planned out by the volunteers on our Board of Directors. This year we have a few positions that will be open to take office on November 1st. These are all one year terms...and the nominations are currently open 1 Year Terms: Membership – Commerce – Education – These are all the two year terms positions open, and the nominations are currently open 2 Year Terms: INDMAS President – Responsibilities of the officers can be found here: http://indmas.org/main/index.php/topic/1203-duties-and-responsibilities-of-elected-positions/  2023 Frag Swap Commerce Committee Don't think you have enough time to swing a Staff position? The INDMAS Frag Swap is a big undertaking and planning for the March 2023 event will start in November. The Commerce Committee is responsible for helping solicit those awesome raffles that you see near the stage every year! They are a pivotal position and work directly with the Commerce Chair to ensure a great fundraiser for the club. How can you help give back to the club and the reefing community? I'm glad you asked! Email for more information to see if this is a good fit for you: [email protected] Thank you all for reading this extended nomination post and I hope to meet each and every one of you that I don't know already, yet this year. I hope all of your reefs are flourishing and I have given you all something to think about regarding the future of our reefs. You can all help be a part of the solution! Nominations are open until the October meeting on 10/8/2022 and at the meeting we will vote for the new board positions.

Time 4-6 Address 10873 Olivia Ct Indianapolis IN 46234 They have a 300 gallon display and a 500 gallon system. Make sure to bring a notebook and camera sop you can take notes about one of the best designed fish rooms in the club and a water storage system that could fill a swimming pool. The retro frag swap is no tanks/no lights/no heaters old school- just frags in coolers to buy sell and trade. Bring cash with you to the meeting or set up trades. Posted thread specific for the retro frag swap in buy sell and must be a member to access that post. Please note the date is the third Saturday due to MACNA being on the 10th.
  6. From the picture it looks fine. It is normal for an anemone to shrink in the evening and grow larger during the day. Parameters are fine. If not dropping tentacles it should be fine. Do not overfeed the tank the clown will feed the anemone.
  7. Thanks again Luis and Chanel Great Food and The Tank is looking great.
  8. This was a topic of casual conversation at out last meeting.... Aquarium Depot is running their 2000 pods for 39.99 deal at aquariumdepot.com it says today only but it usually runs a couple of days. Just an FYI

  11. The August meeting will be at Luis's (Gonzo620) home at 1727 Jacques Drive in Lebanon IN on Saturday August 13th from 4pm to 6pm. Luis has a very well though out 180 gallon display tank with great attention to detail for his system. Additionally most of us do not get the chance to venture to out of the area stores. That gave us an idea to organize a field trip to Aquarium World in Lafayette. Aquarium World setup at the frag swap in 2021. The idea is to meet at Luis at 12:30 pm and carpool to Aquarium World in Lafayette. This is not part of the official club meeting and we will return to Luis' for the meeting. Let us know if you might be interested and we will update the thread if we have the interest. Josh the owner of aquarium world is working on some club specials. Please RSVP below for both events the same day. And a reminder for 2023 the frag swap will be Saturday March 11, 2023 at Northside Knights of Columbus
