We have booked and confirmed John Coppolino as a speaker,

and are awaiting Bob Fenner and Matt Pedersen to conform their flights.

The web page should have the details, but we are still working on getting it launched

in the next week.

The website links posted above have all the updated links and tickets are on sale now.

John Coppolino, Matt Pedersen, and Bob Fenner, about a dozen vendors, a raffle,

and more being added.

Hopefully with strong attendance at the inaugral Reef Currents event, MARSH will get this going as an annual event AND

we'll have a different day next year?

I am hoping to see Austin and ARC represented at Reef Currents :)

Hi all,

I've posted info about a one day conference in Houston like Dallas' NextWave called

Reef Currents in the Houston club MARSH forum, here.

However, I find it hard to find the post so I thought I'd mention it here too:


All details at reefcurrents.org

I drive the ~5 hours from Houston to Dallas for Nextwave, so I definitely think the ~2 1/2 hours for

Reef Currents to hear Bob fenner, Matt Pedersen, and John Coppilno; plus the vendors, plus the raffle;

plus the auction - WAY WORTH IT!

Hope to see some ARC members there :)

Oops forgot to mention, our partners. Apologies.

We're doing this in conjunction with Steve Tyree's Coral Farmers Market (CFM) and he'll

be there with Reef Farmers (reeffarmers.com) his company, and of course hold an auction of his corals.

Thanks James for letting me know.

Oh if you pre-order, you'll still need at minimum a vendor hall ticket if you are picking up

your order in the vendor hall. Also, I don't know the vendor pre-order details. Please

contact them to arrange it.

I am going to have to see if the guys down here at the BCS area would like to go. This is something I don't want to miss but only having one vehicle in the family might make it a bit tricky. Crossing my fingers that I will see (and finally get to meet) you guys there.

We are expecting another DSA tank.

BUT right now, there's already 4 separate aquariums in the raffle:

1. 90 gallon, including stand AND sump,

2. Complete Oceanic 29 gallon biocube includes delivery, set-up AND

$200 livestock credit at Urban Aquatics store

Oh do you remember reading about Sea & Reef resurrecting the C-quest clownfish line:


Well, one of our vendors: FJW is bringing a complete line of Sea & Reef clownfish for purchase &

for their own raffle. I don't know how many total clownfish are being raffled off, one or more?

ALSO: Thursday 11:59 pm online sales end for full passes at $35. Otherwise available at the door for $45.

Wouldn't you rather save that money for the raffle? Vendor hall still $15 at the door.
