Default SCAPE meet - July 29 - Mission Viejo - Details

Hey guys!

For those who don't know yet we've come to a decision on the location for our upcoming meet. I'm happy to say that I'll be hosting at my new place in Mission Viejo.

Details, details, details:

Time: Noon (unless this doesn't work for some?)

Location:
Just off of Marguerite Pkwy and Oso Pkwy in Mission Viejo
Please PM either myself or turbomkt for the exact address.
Here's a google map of the area: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=e...a&ie=UTF8&om=1

Phone:
714-654-5341
call me if you need to, just not in the wee hours of the morning!

I'll have the grill set up and we can cook burgers and chicken (or whatever anyone else wants), I'll provide sodas, and if anyone wants to they're welcome to BYOB.


Details on the tanks:

1. 80 gallon - 36"W x 16"D x 31"T
96W ahsupply lighting, pH controlled CO2, 4" Soilmaster substrate, 2x XP2 filtration
Special challenge to this tank - Goldfish, they're like lawnmowers with fins.

2. 20 gallon hex - 19" corner to corner, 20" tall
Low tech, 2 x 15W spiral CFs, Hagen CO2, quartz gravel (this might change), bio-wheel filter
Special challenge - this tank will probably not change much in configuration and will stay pretty low tech for the foreseeable future.

I'm willing to go with whatever the group wants to do as far as scaping the tanks!

So any ideas for what plants might work with the available tanks? Don't have a wide experience with different types of plants, so the only types I can think of for the goldfish tanks are anubias, which are pretty tough right? Microsword is a pretty tough plant too right? For the low-tech one, plants that will do well in low light would be mosses and... what else, crypts?

It seems that the magic solution for goldfish is to select plants which aren't too tasty or too tender coupled with planting the tank heavily enough that even if they nibble the damage isn't so noticeable. I keep crypts, vals, and swords with no problems. Some other stem plants don't fare so well, nor do plants with small (bite sized?) leaves.

Carl, are you going to want/need some vals? The ones you gave me have really taken off in our tank and can be thinned out of both tall ones and runners, and that's now, let alone in a few weeks!

Cassie,

I don't think that I'll need any more vals, but bring them with you anyway. One of the best thigns about our last meet was that everybody had an opportunity to swap plants and get their hands on things that might not otherwise be available. Even if they're not used in one of the tanks I'm sure somebody will be thrilled to have them.
