1st SCAPE Meet & Demo April 22 @ 1 p.m.
 
What?:

Our first SCAPE (Southern California Aquatic Plant Enthusiasts) Meet & Demo!

If you're not officially a member, don't worry! There's nothing to do other than attend!

Let’s unite with fellow hobbyists, ‘scape a “high-tech” planted aquarium, trade plants, and support a new Local Fish Store where the owner is making a concerted effort to support the hobby.

One lucky attendee will win a clean, healthy patch of Hemianthus Callitrichoides (“HC”) courtesy of me!

When?:

Saturday, April 22nd, from 1-4 p.m.

Where?:

http://pictureposter.allbrand.nu/pic.../image_056.jpg
Ocean Blue
622 E. Katella Ave.
Orange, CA 92867
(714)532-4528 (Owner is Brian)
(See this thread for more details and pictures of the shop: https://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/f...orange-ca.html)

What Should I Bring?:

Plants
Feel free to bring pre-identified healthy plants to use in the aquascape, if appropriate, and for trading afterwards. Fast growers are especially welcome. Let’s donate the remainder to Brian for resale in appreciation of his hospitality. (I am bringing some Cherry Shrimp and assorted plants for use in the scape.)

Ideas:
This scaping process should be collaborative, so bring your ideas!

Supply List:
Brian stocks many supplies (hopefully soon, ADA), so if you need anything, please consider buying from his store. He mentioned extending a discount to SCAPE members, too, which would be nice. Also, he is placing a big plant order to coincide with the meet … so factor that.

One More Thing:
Please check this thread prior to the 22nd for any last minute notices!

Gomer 04-04-2006 12:18 PM

As I understand it, brian is going to be ordering some plants for the aquascape. I am sure that some plants will be fine but others would be good to have. Feel free to bring extras for the scape on top of trading.

On that note, will there be hardscaping supplies made available? If he is planning on malaysian driftwood, we will want to see if brian can pre-soak some choice pieces otehrwise the tank will be filled with tons of tea colored tannins.

I'm stopping by the shop over lunch this week to discuss the demo tank with him. I'm not sure if he wants to do rock, wood, or both.

Gomer 04-04-2006 02:33 PM

having worked with both, I can tell you that the decision onw hat to use really will end up being made when the scaper(s) have a look at the supply on hand LOL. Oh well. Improptu scaping FTW!

turbomkt 04-04-2006 04:03 PM

John, thanks for putting this together! Are you doing the scaping? Or was that Tony's hand I saw up?:wave:

adin 04-04-2006 04:13 PM

fun!

John P. 04-04-2006 06:43 PM

I asked Tony to help out a while ago. Looks like he is.

Gomer 04-04-2006 06:44 PM

I replied to your PM before but you never got back to my reply! :P

Sorry about that! I thought I had.

slickwillislim 04-04-2006 08:21 PM

I am pretty sure I can make it. I might have some ludwigia palustrius(sp?) and ovalis depends on how they grow in my tank. Currently my ranunculus inundatus is growing like a weed so I might have some of that to trade or give to the aquascape. A few anubias nana. Blyxa japonica as well as long as it grows in enough by the 22nd. I have plenty of green cabomba but who doesn't if you want some pm me before the meeting and I will bring a few stems. As long as I dont get hit with any algae due to me slacking off I will be willing to donate or trade these plants.

Does anyone have any Ludwigia Inclinata Var. Verticillata 'CUBA' they would be willing to trade. If not I will just find it online. I just thought I would ask. Or if Ocean Blue gets any in with their plant order.

I am curious what you guys where planning on bringing to trade or donate.

Does anybody know what kind of plants he is buying as stock and for the demo tank?

Might want to recommend hardy slow growing plants, ala Senski setup. Anubias, etc., so it gets established right away, and he wont have to trim to much.

Gomer 04-05-2006 08:25 PM

well, you want some fast growers or the nutrient imbalance will suck. There is a good mix to play with that will work nicely.

turbomkt 04-05-2006 08:46 PM

I can have java fern and windelov java fern, dwarf sag, bacopa, anubias nana gold, and A. barteri (very large) at the least...

slickwillislim 04-05-2006 08:49 PM

We could throw some floaters in their to suck up the nutrients. Some salvinia or water lettuce.

What size tank and lighting are we looking at, that would definetly help in determining the setup? I am guessing we won't know until we get there.

John P. 04-05-2006 09:05 PM

I'll know more tomorrow. I'm stopping by over lunch.

Gomer 04-05-2006 09:06 PM

also check what type of hardscape supplies we have. ..oh, and what substrate and if sand is available. ..I am getting ideas LOL.

Lauren 04-05-2006 09:12 PM

I ordered too much glosso, so I'll be bringing two bunches.

But I REFUSE to plant it.

slickwillislim 04-05-2006 09:15 PM

lol.:) Yeah planting glosso is quite time consuming. I only have short subby tweezers so it was pretty bad when I planted 7 orders into my 29 a few months ago it took me hours.

acbaldwin 04-05-2006 09:18 PM

Aww you guys suck...
As we speak I'm getting ready to plant 2 big bunches in my 20.
With short. stubby. tweezers.

Gomer 04-05-2006 09:21 PM

I got all sorts of tweezers and stuff. I'll try and remember to bring them :)

Lauren 04-05-2006 09:29 PM

I borrowed some better forceps from my ecology teacher. My problem wasn't the time. it was the 2 foot reach, and the streaching around driftwood and existing plants that got to me.

John P. 04-05-2006 10:53 PM

I'll try to bring my scissors and 12" tweezers, too. I think Glosso would be fine, and it offers quick gratification. Tony--I'll get the hardscape under control, as well as substrate, etc.

turbomkt 04-06-2006 03:27 PM

Andrew, I've got some 10" or 12" tweezers you can borrow if you want...

I can bring some garden netting to anchor the riccia got 14'x14' of this. I don't have any plants to spare since I just started my tank. I'll make it up with moral support then :D GOOOOOOOOO SCAPE!!!

I have some long Sagittaria up for trade....

John P. 04-07-2006 01:21 PM

Here's the latest…

Brian would like a lower-maintenance tank, and likes the sand foreground style like Jeff Senske set up in Erin's house last week. I think java ferns, anubias, driftwood (he has some--not manzanita), and smooth moss-covered river rocks (he's providing the rock), and some choice stems. The sand and Florabase will be provided.

Filter will be an Eheim Ecco. Tank is TBD, but will be about 75G.

I've suggested some fish species and will donate Cherry Shrimp.

Oh…there will be door prizes & refreshments! Please bring a folding chair if you want to sit. Also, kindly park in the back of the store!

TetraFreak 04-07-2006 01:28 PM

Door Prizes??? Did someone say Door Prizes????

I Like Door Prizes! :D

I can bring some mermaid for it! as Mermaid is not that common in fish stores! Mermaid just doesn't like to be shaded.

Oh...and did I mention I Like Door Prizes???
