Default DVAGA--January 2010 meeting (1/2/10)

Hi Everyone,

Now that the club is up and running again I'd like to announce our next meeting. For 2010 we plan to meet on the first Saturday of every other month starting in January.

The next meeting is set for 1pm on 1/2/2010. Nate has agreed to host the meeting and show us his tanks. Here's a link for a sneak preview:

https://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/f...s-journal.html

I think he is also going to be setting up a small 10g experimental El Natural tank so it should interesting . . .

I'll send out an email w/ the address and directions to those on our mailing list. If you're in the area and aren't on the DVAGA mailing list send me a PM and I'll send you the address.

You can also check out our website: www.DVAGA.com

Hope to see you there!

-Roy

Never done El Natural before, but there's a first time for everything! The reason I would like to experiment with El Natural is that my parents want to have a planted tank, but do not have the time or desire to learn enough to keep a high tech tank. So this will be a learning experience on the ten gallon and I will then be setting up a 67 gallon tank El Natural within the months to follow. I plan on getting supplies within the next few weeks and setting it up at the next meeting. I'll also do a trim of my 75 gallon when we meet and everything I pull out (besides what goes into the 10 gallon El Natural) will be up for grabs! Hope to see those who can make it Jan 2!

If anyone has some floaters that I could use in the El Natural setup it would be appreciated!

I've got some Phyllanthus fluitans aka red root floater. I am planning on coming and will try to remember to bring a baggie with me.

I can contribute some Amazon Frogbit (Limnobium laevigatum).

I had a great time. I really liked the terrarium & the growth in your display tank. Nice work!

Thanks for having me and thanks for the plants.

Thanks everyone for coming and seeing my tanks!! It was great to have everybody over and hang out. Hopefully I'll be a set of tweezers richer by the next time you see me! I'll post pics of the El Natural setup periodically and give you some water stats for awhile.

El Natural Day 1:
pH: 7.4 - 7.6
Ammonia: 0 ppm
Phosphate: 0 ppm
Nitrate: 5 ppm

Looking good so far!!
