Another great event with live presentation.

Thanks to Erin for hosting this presentation, thanks to DVAGA for organizing this get-together and last but not least thanks to Jeff Senske ADG for his excellent presentation. Step by step explanation, product knowledge, aquascape knowledge combined with amazing ADA products = successful final layout.

Jeff and Mike Senske (ADG) are doing a lot for this hobby (*from personal experience). Show support by visiting their website and ADA store.

Very nice pics as well as the tank! It looks very awesome! I wished I was there to enjoy such a wonderful group. That tank will be a beauty once things start to kick in and grow.

Awesome! He just makes it look so easy.

Can anyone explain what all the pipes on the back are for exactly, and why they are positioned where they are? It looks pretty random to me!

It was a wonderful time indeed!

Erin and the other members of DVAGA were wonderful hosts! If you live in the area and haven't contacted DVAGA, you better get moving. It is a great group with a great agenda.

Jeff Senske is absolutely brilliant! His work is amazing. What a privilege it was to watch a master of the hobby at work. The tips and tricks he gave us made the two hour ride from NJ worth it.

It was also nice to be able to actually handle and use some of the ADA products Jeff brought with him to PA. I have to tell you, I was very impressed with the quality and precision of the stainless steel instruments. Very impressed. I am placing an order!

Thanks again, DVAGA and Jeff Senske!


Mike

I also had the pleasure of being there.

DVAGA, and especially Erin - Thank you for opening your doors to a bunch of planted tank nuts, and having a great speaker and artist, Jeff Senske.

Anyone interested in seeing a few more photos from the day, have a look over here...

Agreed on the handling of the ADA stuff - we just don't see this is stores, and once you hold it you can see/feel the difference.

And yes, order on the way with Mike... (ducking and running...)

Thank you!
Joe

It was something the hostess wanted to do. Simple as that.
