Default Mystic Aquarium - April 5th Meeting Details

Dear CAPE,

This is a reminder email to everyone that our Mystic Aquarium meeting is this weekend (Saturday April 5th at noon). Due to the limited number of spots we will have a one guest policy that is not a member of CAPE (if you have babies or young children just send me a message and we can work it out).

We will be leaving my house in Hamden at 11 am, if you'd like to carpool with me I can take up to 4 people, otherwise please meet at Mystic Aquarium by noon.

What to Bring: emersed plants you want to donate, a bathing suit if you want to get into the large tank, goggles or a diving mask, and of course a camera.
My Address: Message me for details
Mystic Address: 55 Coogan Blvd, Mystic, CT 06355
Meeting Date: 12 pm Saturday April 5nd at Mystic Aquarium at the front entrance cashier
My Cell #: Contact me for details.

Please send me an email or text and let me know if you'll be coming. I need to give Mystic a headcount by Friday at the latest.

Nice set of photos! Thanks for posting them

Yeah the tank was looking so good. At least the emersed setup is looking much better. We'll have to donate some of our clippings to the emersed area.

Did the seam break prevent it from being completed?
It looks great!

Yes it did, the tank drained onto the floor. We replanted the emersed setup after the tank broke so at least we got something productive done.

I called Jack and offered our help with fundraising, but he said they are going to use insurance to replace the tank. The tank cannot be repaired.
