Smile Who decide to invite a speaker for monthly meeting

I just wonder who decide to invite a speaker for monthly meeting?
I wish someone would show us some technics how to aquascape the tank. I did aquascape my tank more than 10 times already, but I have not been really happy with it.

Aquascaping is mainly about having good rock to work with. There is only so much you can do with boulder like rocks. I pay a bit more than I like for nice shape shelf rocks sometimes. You can do cool stuff with acrylic rods but all that drilling is a task. Raj books the speakers so shot him a pm. However I am pretty sure we are booked out already a few months ahead.

I think there was a meeting speaker last year that addressed it. Actually, it might have been a video recorded from another reef club. Do a you tube search and you my find some helpful flicks.

truth.

if your liferock looks like whats left after they tear up a concrete block... well... chances are no matter what you do its going to look like a bunch of boulders stacked on each other.

if the rock is good, then you have a fighting chance, but every tank and every rock is different. Ill second youtube, some decent vids on there, but it wont apply to everyone.

Jeremy (jmaneyapanda) and I book the speakers.

But, as Charlie said, it's all about the rock you start with.
