    Dear members

    Our next meeting will be held on Tuesday the 31/08/2010 at the Durban Under Sea Club at the Point Waterfront.

    The DUC has been generous by allowing us to use their venue, and as a token of appreciation, we have discussed and agreed at the last meeting that we will help maintain their Marine tank.
    The tanks does require some attention, Leigh has fitted a brand new Reef Inmates lighting unit with 3*250W MH's and a few T5's over the system.

    The tank urgently requires more flow, bigger skimmer and a chiller. If we can get together and add some frags to the system it will be awesome, the tank is mainly softies and LPS, so we require more of the hardy corals. So members and sponsors please dig deep so we can make this system a success.
    If you guys have any questions, please feel free to ask.
    You guys can visit the DUC website @ www.duc.co.za

    Regards
    Mekaeel

    Geez Marco, leave something for the rest of us will you. :p

    What's left? Flow? MASA would like to contribute something towards the tank due to their kindness in allowing us to make use of their facilities, perhaps a pump or two. Let me know. But I demand before and after pics of the tank. :D

    A huge thank you to Aquarium Depot for the discount on the chiller and thank you to the buyer who still wishes to remain anonymous.

    We still need lots more flow Andreas. The tank is 2m long and 800wide and only has 2 Seio M1500 (stand for correction on the Seio spec)

    Thanks for the offer dude but im awaiting Roadblocks reply regarding whether the DSB is done or not. :)

    We gonna hopefully be installing the goodies that Marco is sponsoring and do some reef talk as well. We actually got quite a bit to talk about as the Aquarist section is officially opened. :)
