    Good morning all!
    I've noticed a couple of gentlemen and ladies from the Vaal area on masa.
    Everyone else is doing the reef club thing - so why not us?
    Nothing formal for now - just a nice get together?

    I know that there is a Gauteng reef club - but it is sometimes just a hassle to drive 100+ km to a meeting.

    Anyone keen?
    Oh - Johannesburg and near by guys are welcome as well (if you're willing to travel a bit.)

    Its coming nicely I think... Very little Algae left.
    The cheato does not seem to grow.. Think I need some stronger ligting on it.
    All parameters is 100%, and I am thinking of starting to get some life in there.

    Francois - sorry to be the bearer of bad news, mate....

    The clowns hosting in the plate coral will most likely end up killing the plate coral.....

    Good morning to all the valies...
    Ok, the time has come, me and Raven had a quick chat yesterday, and think we should start looking at a date otherwise this will never happen :p

    So, I was thinking of the 13th or March, or the next weekend, the 19th or 20th..

    This is just a start, so please all and any comments welcome, and what dates will suite you best...

    Think it will be very informal, maybe a fire with some meat and a cold one or even just some koekies and tee :p

    Lets hear what you think.

    Niel
