Hi All,

Tom gave an awesome presentation! We had one of our largest meeting attendances for a GSAS meeting and the number of "guests" and new member sign-ups was significant!

Tom discussed several subjects including photosynthesis and how light, carbon, and nutrients can be manipulated to affect plant growth. My initial takeaway from that aspect of the talk was a light limited CO2 enhanced environment can provide good plant growth (not necessarily maximum growth) while minimizing the opportunity for algae growth.

Hi Caton,

I am sorry you didn't make it. Staying home was the right choice; going through the mountain passes without brakes an experience I would not want to try!

Hi rasbora,

Besides an extensive DVD library of past presentations, GSAS has done digital videos of presentations for the last 2.5 years if the speaker permits the recording. Any member can access and download via Bitorrent videos from the GSAS Video Presentations Archive.

You can join online on our GSAS Main webpage. PayPal payments are accepted. Not only will you have access to the video library, but you will receive our monthly Newsletter (Sept - June) and have access to our 39 years of Newsletter archives. Your membership card for local aquarium store discounts will be mailed to you!

You can be a member and never even attend a Tuesday night meeting (but we would love to meet you)!
