Default Demo-18th

Hello All,

I wanted to make the final announcement for the planted tank setup at
Uncle Ned's Fish Factory for March 18th at 1:00pm. On that day,
we'll be putting together a complete setup for a 90 gallon tank that
will include all of the high tech equipment you would find on a
medium-high tech planted tank, including a CO2 system, high light,
etc. If you want to learn about setting up a system from the ground
up, drop by and take notes while we set up this challenging tank.
We'll have discussions about substrate, lighting, driftwood placement
and rockscaping hints, proper plant choice and plant positioning, and
any additional aquascaping hints provided by the members of NEAPS.
The setup will promptly start at 1:00 and continue until the setup is
complete.

Also, I'd like to get some volunteers to help with this setup. Due
to the size of this tank, there will be a need for a certain number
of individuals to aid in various aspects of the setup. If you're
interested, please email myself or one of the officers.

I hope to see a lot of new faces at this event. Drop by and check
out the demonstration. Then get your plants and fish from Ned's and
go home and do the same in your tanks.

See everyone on March 18th!

Bailin Shaw

This was a GREAT event! I really got a lot out of it, and it was good to see all the elements - materials, aquascaping, equipment, etc. come together in a larger tank.

Well done!

Default Great turnout!

Hello All,

I was really glad to see such a large turnout for the 90G planted tank setup at Uncle Ned's. It was great to see some faces I've recognized from past AGA convention and get a chance to meet some new faces. Thanks to Huy, Penny, Dennis, Dave, and several other volunteers to for working the cameras and helping with the aquascaping. Also, a big thanks goes out to Karen Randall for dropping by and interacting with our club and the audience and to Rich for bringing a huge bag of clippings for our demo. It was nice to meet you Jane. It's always good to put names to faces! I hope to see you at future meetings as well as the numerous other people I didn't get the opportunity to interact with.

Finally, our club owes Ned from Uncle Ned's Fish Factory huge debt of gratitude. He got our substrate (Eco-Complete), a nice lighting system, and provided us with all the plants, wood, and rocks we needed to get the setup put together.

Regards,
Bailin Shaw
