Second Meeting

GW fert care packages.

Third Meeting
Chris from will discuss plumbing large tanks and the construction of rimless/braceless tanks. When and how a rimless tank can be constructed.

Very cool. I'm interested in attending. Have you decided on a location yet?

Shay 01-24-2006 07:50 PM

It will either be in Conshohocken or in Phoenixville. I'm working on a new 120 gallon tank that should be up and running either by the first or second meeting. It would be fun to get input on the aquascape so maybe Jason will let me do the honors of hosting the first meeting. :) Look forward to seeing you there.

I may be able to come to a meeting or two sometime, if guests are welcome. I'm way to busy to make the one or two hour drive this spring, but maybe sometimes.

The more the merrier. Hopefully we'll make a road trip to TPP too.

alex93se and Fosty,

We are looking at The third Saturday in Feb for the first meeting in Phoenixville. It would be great if you guys could make it. PM me if you need more info.
