We are 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!
Usual Meeting Location, Otto-Miller 109, social hour at 6:30 PM, meeting starts promptly at 7:30, monthly auction to follow. Look for
dinner with the speaker announcement on Aistrone a few days before the meeting.
Cory McElroy has graciously agreed to let us make his puffer presentation from our September meeting available to anyone who is interested, even non-members. Thanks, Cory! And for those in Washington state who still have not joined GSAS, we have over 100 videotaped presentations in our library, available exclusively to our members!
The fall GSAS season starts this month, and first up we've got a great presentation that you could see in other parts of the US, but oddly not at home before now! It's local favorite Cory McElroy, owner of GSAS sponsor store Aquarium Co-op, blogger/podcaster/YouTube'r, and former GSAS BAP chair. Cory will be speaking on Puffers.
Usual location, Otto-Miller Hall, Room 109, 7:30 PM (6:30 social time).
After the meeting, join us for our monthly auction and purchase what everyone has spawned, grown, or collected over the summer.
Here is the preliminary fall 2017 meeting schedule. The first two meetings are at our usual spot, Otto Miller 109. The remaining two meeting locations and dates have not been confirmed at this time, so check the website for changes!
