Default 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?:


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!

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.

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

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