Friday Dinner Banquet Tickets ($33 per person)

 

 

Banquet Topic: Holistic Husbandry: A new era of aquarium care. Mark Vera.

 

 

Synopsis:

 

The words "holistic aquarium" conjures up a hippie cult of oregano dosing aquarists. Fear not! This discussion will approach a new way of looking at your aquatic systems that takes the entire ecosystem into account and not individual life forms. We will delve into the nuances of husbandry, nutrition and nutrient control and how they are all connected. This will include a discussion of aquatic theology of science and result based methodology that will enlighten aquarists. This presentation aims to provide tools for hobbyists to build a comprehensive knowledge base and independent problem solving.

 

Biography:

 

Mark Vera has been keeping marine aquariums for 22 years, during which he has worked in most capacities of the aquarium industry including retail, wholesale, maintenance and manufacturing. Mark had the honor of serving as President of the Marine Ornamental Fish & Invertebrate Breeders Association in 2009-2010, and has extensive experience in public and private Seahorse breeding projects.

Another well run and very enjoyable Reef Conference. Kudos to everybody who helped make this happen, from the planning to the running. And an extra special THANKYOU to Jeff for all the raffle goods he manages to get. You out did yourself. I thought last year's $340 retail cost of raffle goods I got for $100 in tickets was great, but this year I just totaled it up and it's $450... holy payback Batman. Thanks again to everybody.

Great thanks to everyone that helped! For me was double duty since this is the first time trying to sell. Did not go so well because my corals decided it would be a good time to have a gang fight. My zoas basically said I and going to hide until we get back home. My Hollywood stunners, confusa and Jason Fox Mystic Sunset were the losers in the fight. Not to worry though none were my mother colonies. Once everything opens back up I will get pics and post for sale. If you want to swing by and check them out just PM me and I will send you the address.
