    The BRS is proud to announce that our own Greg Hiller will be the speaker for the next monthly meeting on Sunday September 16th at the North Andover VFW club. The topic will be "Disaster Prevention and Reef keeping Chemistry for Dummies (I'm not judging!)" For those of you that haven't had the privilege of attending one of Greg's presentations it is always a great time.


    Here is a little background on Greg, he has been active in the reef keeping hobby since 1996, starting out in the early days using CompuServe's Fishnet forum as a troubleshooting resource. The lessons learned online from experienced aquarists resulted in such rapid coral growth in his tanks that he needed to learn and develop techniques of coral propagation/fragmentation. Greg has raised several species of marine fish and propagated dozens of species of soft and hard corals, and anemones/corallimorphs. As most of you know Greg is a founding member of our club and was a member of the board of directors for several years.

    Greg holds a Ph.D. in chemical/biochemical engineering from U.C. Berkeley which he believes has contributed to his success in the reef keeping hobby. Understanding the basics of chemistry, combined with biology and engineering have helped with numerous fishy-type projects from raising seahorses to building calcium reactors. Greg has authored a number of articles for online hobbyist publications, most dealing with chemistry aspects of the hobby.


    In keeping with the topic of discussion. The BRS will be raffling off one of these little beauties. Just another reason to show up.
