Ask and you shall receive, Greg will be talking about Reef Keeping Chemistry.

Just over a week away! Don't forget to clear your schedule for some socializing, education, and frag swapping in North Andover! If you are planning on going to the meeting and want to trade feel free to meet people at this meeting for swapping!

1 week from now I will be in North Andover setting up for the meeting! I am getting excited for BRS to put on a great talk from a native reef keeping legend @Greg Hiller !

If anyone is looking for any specific corals for the meeting feel free to ask @FragFreaks or ask here. BRS will also have a tank so ask and we can see what we can find for you! Socializing, Education and Connecting Reefers from across MA and surrounding states is the BRS mission!

We hope to see you there!

Okay, the presentation tomorrow will be exclusively about reefkeeping chemistry. I have a HUGE amount of material, so there will be options to skip sections and emphasize the topics you are interested in. For anyone that's seen a reefkeeping chemistry talk by me before there will be parts you remember, but I always cover some different/new things, so you should not be (overly) bored!

As mentioned above, I'll have a tank set up at the meeting with cuttings from my tanks. I'll have a wide variety of frags, most quite large in size. Here's a photo of one that a lot of people like:

I'll be coming to my first meeting tomorrow and bringing my 10 year old son. I'm definitely interested in a couple premium acro frags... Are there usually enough to go around?

Cash and/or card work for purchasing frags and membership?

Should I bring some food or drink?

We buy pizza and ask a buck a slice. With three frag tanks plenty to go around! I am getting stuff for the kids tables tomorrow so if there is something he likes to do to keep him occupied let me know in a pm and I will be sure to grab something for him!

Update!!!

FragFreaks will not be able to make it to the meeting due to unforeseen circumstances.

We will still have 2 great frag tanks set up at the meeting so don’t worry we will be able to get your frag fix!
