DVAGA Event - Big Al's Aquascaping 101 August 4th at 1pm

Hey all,

Big Alís of East Norriton has requested that we set up a club sponsored aquarium in their store. This is an exciting time for us!! Sponsoring this tank will give us a tremendous chance to spread knowledge about our hobby, as well as create a great relationship with a great local store.

The event will be on August 4th at the store.

Big Al's Philadelphia
2876 DeKalb Pike
East Norriton, PA

610.239.1645
http://www.bigalsusa.com/phillyhome.html

I plan to begin the clinic at 1pm.

The agenda will take us from a bare tank to a finished high tech (high light and CO2) 90 gallon aquarium.

I plan to cover:
-Aquascaping and Layout Design fundamentals
-Preparation of plants
-Planting methods
-Species specifics
-CO2
-Fertilizing approaches
-Plant friendly fish
-Algae prevention
-Overview of hardware used
In addition to the support of the tank and our club, Big Alís is offering 10% off all aquatic plants on the day of the event. So even if you donít want to come and laugh at me in the spotlight, please come and take a look at their plants and walk out with a great deal.

Please come join me to support our club and me (hopefully I donít fall in J)

If you have any questions or suggestions, please post them, I need all the help I can get

Hope to see you all there.
