III. New Business:

We are looking to schedule a guest speaker Sanjay Joshi in late June around the 26th. We will be putting out flyers to announce the event.

Welcome to our new members as well as those just visiting. There were a lot of new faces. Let’s make a point to get to know all of our new members and make them feel welcome.

A big thank to Ray and Lisa O’Connor for all of their work in making the newsletter a possibility. Please take the opportunity to look over this great piece of work. There is a link to it on the Atlanta Reef Club home page. They are looking for people to submit article for the quarterly newsletter. If you have a topic you would like to submit please send it to [email protected] . It’s a great opportunity to discuss your favorite reef keeping subject with everyone. Please show your interest and appreciation by helping out.

Bob Lemcke and Sally Densmore have graciously agreed to act as the meeting directors for the remainder of 2004. They already have potential meeting places set up through December. They are doing a remarkable job. Let’s remember that all of this is volunteer work. All time is donated to make this club great.
The May meeting will be at Michael Jackson’s house. We will be doing a blender mush. There will be 2 recipes. Everyone will get a bag to take home. All is encouraged to attend. It will be a learning experience. Your fish will thank you.


Now to the fun things. A big thank you to Charles Kuehne. What a wonderful job he did with the presentation of how to set up a nano tank.

FACTS: Setup was purchased from AQUABUYS off the internet. We used club funds and the setup was approximately $256.00 The nano tank that was put together had the following items: aqua clear 150, tank, salt, filter, 50 watt heater, magnet, hydrometer, 32 watt retrokit, surface skimmer, test kit, purigen, power head 73gph and I’m sure there’s a couple of things I didn’t write down but for the most part that’s all of it.

Thank you to the following for the donations to the Nano Tank.

Marine Fish: Live rock and Sand

Dale Eichberg: Clean up crew

Don Pelino: Frags and premixed water

Thanks again to Charles for the extensive explanation on how to setup the Nano Tank. What a great class that was. He covered every angle from opening the box to wiring the lights to plugging everything in.
