*FREE Presentation* Blackwater Tanks/Tannin Aquatics @Greater Seattle Aquarium Society (GSAS) - Oct 10th
The Greater Seattle Aquarium Society (GSAS) is pleased pleased to announce our October 10th GSAS speaker is Scott Fellman, owner of Tannin Aquatics, who will be giving a talk entitled Out of the Darkness - Blackwater/Botanical-Style Aquariums. The talk will discuss what blackwater is (including blackwater habitats in the wild), benefits, ins-and-outs of replicating a blackwater system in the aquarium.
Scott has been keeping freshwater and marine aquariums since he was a kid. His passion is creating natural-looking and functional biotopes. He's written for tons of publications (like Reef Builders, Reef2Reef, and Coral magazine), and has spoken at all sorts of reef-end conferences like MACNA. He was co-owner of a successful LA-based online marine livestock retailer, before selling his interest in 2016 to launch Tannin, which specializes in, you guessed it, selling natural materials for blackwater and brackish aquariums!
The presentation, which is open to the public, will be Tuesday, October 10th, 2017 at 7:30 PM at Seattle Pacific University; Otto Miller Hall; Room 109; West Nickerson Street and 3rd Avenue West.
Doors will open about 6:30 PM for a 'social hour'; the meeting will start at 7:30 PM.
