My wife and I visited their facility in Florida last summer and were blown away at the work they're doing. They have marine hospitals, education programs, sea turtle conservation, and coral restoration. We saw their volunteers out on the beach monitoring sea turtle nests bright and early in the mornings.

I encourage everyone to visit the Mote Marine website and see what they're all about. What they're doing is what Buckeye Reef is all about. I couldn't be happier to be part of their great cause.

We will have Reef Crystals for 40$ per 200 gallon box at the expo. Should we get 100 or 200 boxes? Do you think 200 boxes will sell?

Post here how many you plan to purchase.

Its a Friday Night before Expo Buckeye Reef Party!

http://www.buckeyereef.com/forums/index.php?/topic/7064-friday-night-expo-party-and-hotel/

Just got a call from the hotel with the following:

"The cutoff date for the room block is Friday and there are still 8 rooms available. Those rooms will drop off after Friday. We still have rooms available in the hotel but they will be reserved at the prevailing rate."

If you want to get a room for $107 call before Friday and book it. Just tell them its the Buckeye Reef block.

A Few Frag Swap Tips for Both Newbies and Veterans

1. Don't Forget Cash. Some Vendors will Take Credit Cards, but Others are Cash Only (Even if a Vendor Accepts Credit Card They Will Prefer Cash Because They Will Not Have to Pay Credit Card Fees).
2. Bring a Small Portable Cooler to Store the Corals that Bought In.
3. Admission is $5, Kids are FREE. Having the Exact Amount Helps Things Go Smoother at the Entrance.
4. Doors Open at 11:00 AM
5. Be Aware of How Much Time You Take Talking to a Vendor if what Your Discussing Doesn't Involve Buying Something . Vendors are Very Helpful and Knowledgeable and Most Will Try to Help You, but Please be Conscious of the Fact that Vendors are There to Sell and Not to Explain How to Rid Your Tank of Nuisance Algae (For Example).

Okay, I'll ask. What do you do with all that salt? Figure 200 gallons per box, maybe 20 layers of 12 boxes each, that's 240 boxes so about 48,000 gallons of sea water worth... You going to have a "swim with the corals" pool at BRME? If so, I am coming out there and bagging mine...
