This meeting will be held in my fishroom (Fairfield, CT) - pm me if you need directions or wait for the email announcement n the mailing list.
LOTS of things going on this month and the next one, guys! On the 18th, we'll be doing the emersed plant mini-scape activity that the snow got in the way of last month. Bring a small clear container (glass jar, betta bowl, whatever) and any emersed plants/hardscape you have floating around.
Second on the agenda is our club mini-auction. Plants, shrimp, fish, hardscape - anything planted-tank-friendly is welcome. Bring cash if you want to buy - we can't take check or credit! Mini-auction will be a 50/50 with half going to the club fund.
I also got an email this week from Leslie D., the chairwoman of the NEC's annual convention (March 23-25 in Cromwell, CT - go register here!
). We're getting three 6-foot tables
to set up our planted tank display(s) at the convention. Convention attendees will be voting on their favorite tank (with a prize to the winner) so let me know as soon as possible if you're planning to bring something to the show! We'll be in the same room as the Innes Competition (with the pretty show fish).
There's also a big dealer's room full of fun shopping and the whole convention ends with a massive auction (more shopping!). Also worth noting: Rhonda Wilson, who writes the planted tank column in Tropical Fish Hobbyist magazine, will be giving two presentations this year - I highly recommend all you CAPE people go attend.
Furthermore, for those of you who're plotting out their weekends in advance, the Norwalk Aquarium Society's annual spring benefit auction will be on Sun. 3/4.
