Change of Plans guys the 23 is MACNA weekend in Houston. How does the 30th sound?
08/10/2006, 06:12 AM
Oohh , The 30th, for me isn't good, we are going to vegas that weekend. Oh Well, I am sure you will have other meetings and I could see your tanks then.:(
08/10/2006, 08:46 AM
Oh no sorry to hear that.. Well don't worry its not set in stone yet.. I'm kinda of waiting to see what everyone thinks.. I'm pretty much open Any weekend in September.
Have Fun in Vegas. I've never been there yet.. I plan on going to see the Grand cannon and the hoover dam some time..
08/10/2006, 09:17 AM
What about the 16th? I would really like to be there, if this works for everyone else. But, if not that's ok too.
This will be our second time there. It was about 3yrs ago we went and we went on the bus tour to the Grand Cannon and went by the Hoover Dam, it was AWESOME! We had a wonderful time. There was so much we wanted to see and do that we wanted to go back. This time we want to do the Hoover Dam Tour. We also wanted to see the Celine Dion show. I am Excited:D
The Architecture of the buildings are unbelievable. The temps should be better at this time too.
08/10/2006, 10:41 AM
Who's going to MACNA?
08/10/2006, 10:57 AM
The sooner the better for me I want to see the corner tank on tracks!8-Ball they tell me I make good slaw and I could bring drinks,buns,baked beans,whatever you need just let me know!After you set a date how about using this post to count heads?I was happy to hear of the new website.How is that going?
My brother and his family live in Vegas he owns a company that installs home theaters(BIG ONES).I visit once a year and luv it.Cheak out Skark Reef at Mandalay Bay Awsome!and Hoover Dam is a must!Can't wait to meet everybody!!
08/10/2006, 12:14 PM
Well CorallineDream had brought it up and asked if we were free any other weekend since he was going to MACNA and figured a couple others might be as well.
But if we have a bunch that rather have it on the 23rd then we can keep it at that.. We could move it up to the 16th but I figured since the tanks are just now getting moved I was trying to give them time to settle down as much as possible..
Please let me know what you guys think.. 23 or 30. I want to go ahead and get a firm date so folks know whats going on.
Buzzbait00 Thanks Baked Beans wouldn't hurt. I'll have slaw and Buns. I plan on putting my new 180 canopy on Tracks as well! probably this weekend.
08/10/2006, 02:44 PM
I won't be able to come if it was 16th...:(
08/10/2006, 05:56 PM
Sounds like the 23rd works best for most everyone else that's responded so far. Don't hold up the meeting on my account.
I just thought we might want to try to schedule around major events. From the July Meeting thread I recalled someone saying they were going to MACNA along with 4 other people. Not sure if they meant club members.
I hate to miss the fun but there will always be other meetings.
08/11/2006, 09:26 AM
Ok well it seems the 23 would work best.. I've gotten a couple of Pms about it as well.
So the Meeting is still on for the 23rd 1:00pm!
08/11/2006, 12:12 PM
I got it down in my calendar, I'll be there
08/13/2006, 03:06 PM
I seen several people from Alabama at the frag swap last weekend . I had heard that there was a club in Alabama, but I had never ran into anyone for info.I seen H@rry at Coral Reef Aquatics.He was telling me were I could find ya'll at . If everyone does not mind I would like to join ya'll at the next meeting on the the 23rd. I sure do like to see other peoples reef aquariums and share corals and ideas.
08/13/2006, 04:58 PM
certainly, we would love to have new members. I'm one myself :)
08/14/2006, 10:49 AM
Hard-Rock Ofcourse your Welcome to come.. Our meetings are open to anyone that wants to come!
08/26/2006, 05:38 PM
Sweet... Now that I'm settled in here at UAH I can make it to meetings from now on :D It's only been about a year since I went to one...
08/27/2006, 07:16 AM

09/05/2006, 03:15 AM
i'll be able to come this time yippee
09/05/2006, 06:01 PM
Count me in provided we aren't working that day. This will be my first meeting can someone tell me if there are frag swaps or anything that take place.
09/05/2006, 07:01 PM
Glad to hear you guys can make it.
Beasle Bob offered to do a Demostration for us! I forgot to mention it. He had told me about it lastweekend. Its something along the lines of how a sump works.
Dave, Sometimes we do frag swaps. Alot of times if people have something that is overgrown they will bring a couple of frags. If you have something you want trade Just post what you have or even what your looking for and someone might chime in.
09/05/2006, 07:11 PM
Yea,I met Beasle at Lucy's the other day.He was telling me about wanting to do a sump demo.Should be interesting.
09/05/2006, 08:23 PM
Hi everyone. I've been reefing for several years now without anyone to swap experiences with and would love just to see other people's tanks. I may be able to show up on the 23rd. 8-ball, I have some distant relatives who live on Copeland Rd. I'll let you know if things look like I can go.
09/13/2006, 12:27 AM
i will try to be there are children allowed or are they frowned upon at meetings. I have only attended two one at lucys and the one at coral reef aquatics. I kinda just lurked in the background. I dont know very much but so want to learn. The only thing i feel confident about is seahorses as i have had them for a while. I see you keep horses as well cant wait to see your tank, im looking for new ideas for mine. count me in
09/13/2006, 09:09 AM
Tracey, Kids aren't frowned upon lol. Your welcome to bring them. I have a son thats almost 9 myself. If you have little ones just keep in mind our house isn't child proof anymore so you will have to make sure to keep an eye on them. But I do plan on putting up all the dynamite before folks show up.... haha just kidding
09/17/2006, 10:05 AM
What about getting a head count. My landlady wants to know how much food to bring.
Put us down for 2.
09/17/2006, 10:48 AM

Sounds good a Headcount would be great!
Nitroq and I will be driving up from Jasper. Looking forward to meeting you. Do we need to bring anything? I'm a rookie and am looking forward to learning more about this addiction from fellow reefers.
09/17/2006, 07:00 PM
Yes please tell us what to bring such as drinks or foods, as this will be our first meeting. I would bring a tank of frags but my only offering at the moment would be xenia and maybe a 2"x 3" covered rock of Metallic green GSP for swap toward nice zoos or stonies. I will however be looking to purchase some corals if anyone has any let me know what you have available.
09/18/2006, 01:39 AM
one maybe two
09/18/2006, 06:20 AM
Claudia and I are coming.I guess we are still bringing baked beans.I've got some eagle eye zoa frags.
09/22/2006, 09:17 AM
I'm planning on being there.
Does anyone want more frags of xenia?
Also, does anyone know if Johnny will be open any tomorrow?
09/22/2006, 09:40 AM
Newbys is now closed on Sat but maybe we should call him and see if he will open up.He would not have far to go!
09/22/2006, 10:21 AM

I think you'd probably have to call him at a football game.
09/22/2006, 10:24 AM
yea!lol you are right!
09/22/2006, 12:06 PM
Beaslbob says he wants a xenia frag.
He is ready to do a DIY sump demo.
I will be there with Reilly. I am bringing a 50 lbs bag of food grade Calcium hydroxide. I hope 8Ball has a scale. The final price is 21 cents per pound. A heck of a lot cheaper than Mrs. Wages pickling lime!!
I am working on finding a local source for Magflakes and Dowflakes/Peladow. I have located some materials. One of them is very promising, but I still have to confirm a few things.
09/22/2006, 01:05 PM
Just talked to Johnny @ Coral Reef Aquatics. He's coming to the meeting tomorrow and wanted to let everyone know he'll be open for a couple of hours after the meeting.
My landlady is making cole slaw and coconut pie to bring.
09/22/2006, 01:39 PM
i am planning on being there. I will bring a cassarole.
09/22/2006, 10:03 PM
I would like a xenia frag too :) also, should we bring a bag for the lime?
Buzz - Where is your custom avitar! :)
8Ball- cant wait to see that 180, I am having a house built and want to ut a 150 in the wall so I have to look yours over real good :)
09/22/2006, 11:19 PM
Hey Everyone, Look foward to the meeting. We are still planning one getting BBQ between that and all the other goodys people are bringing there should be plenty to eat.
Tomoko we have a bathroom scale and I also have a Fishscale that shows LBS Not sure if one of those will work or not
Stolaas My 180 is a lil different then most inwalls I started to sink mine all the way in the wall but I really wanted to keep the veiw from the side since I paid for Starfire glass on the sides. But I hope it gives you some ideas.
lol My Equipment room is still a mess Everything has been up and running for a while but I still need to do some work on my Electrical cords I also haven't finished my tank for my Mixed salt water yet. Try to ignore the mess. I was going to try and get it all straight before the meeting but just didn't have time this week. Besides that though I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Well see you guys N Gals in a little while.
09/22/2006, 11:28 PM
i would like a xenia frag as well
09/23/2006, 05:37 AM
Mike & I will be there. I will pick up some chips and some cookies.
Look forward seeing your tanks Will !!! And everyone too:)
I need to go to Johnny's too:)
09/23/2006, 06:21 AM
Sounds like this one is going to be a great meeting!!
Will - Your bathroom scale should work fine for weighing out a few pounds of lime at a time. Beaslbob said that he would bring a bag of Dowflake if anyone wants some.
See you all at Will's,
09/23/2006, 06:46 AM
My wife and me too
09/23/2006, 07:21 AM
I definitely want some dowflake!
