Last night we had our local reef club meeting at Augsburg college in Minneapolis. Dr. Bill Capman showed us clown fish eggs, nematocysts, mysid shrimp, and other marvels with their microscopes and was also generous enough to share some frags from his very unique tanks. Here's a link to his site http://www.augsburg.edu/biology/aquaria/
I had fun setting up my frags today. I got 3 different kinds of gorgonians..encrusting, silver and a purple bush (I think), a mushroom, green star polyps, and my very first stoney frags. This morning the polyps were out on everything! I put the stoney's way up high in the tank, so hopefully they will survive. It was a great eductional evening.

BUT, the highlight of the night was that I actually got to meet J.J. <IMG SRC="smilies/tongue.gif" border="0"> Despite me not e-mailing him the exact location of the meeting <IMG SRC="smilies/redface.gif" border="0"> , he was able to find us. It was very cool to actually meet someone from the board. J.J. sounds like he's well on his way to having a great tank.

Pretty ones?!? <IMG SRC="smilies/tongue.gif" border="0"> A white one with brown polyps, a brown one with green polyps, and a tan one with tan polyps. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> I think one is a millepora and one an acropora. I'll have to ask Bill again to be sure. If I had your camera, I could take some pics <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">.
