  1. Proving that RFID can work just as well under water as above, the Underwater World aquarium in Singapore (UWS) is taking a unique approach to identifying fish while they are swimming in their tanks, as we reported last month. The new concept was created to give visitors a more interactive and educational experience, while making it easier for staff to monitor the individual health of the fish. See attached PDF!

  2. I just wanted to say THANKs for a great event. Quite impressive. Excellent speakers. Excellent raffle. Great coral frags. Zowie. And it did NOT hurt that I won that EuroReef CR80 skimmer. That may just save my tank and keep me going in the hobby! Thanks to Blue Ribbon Koi and EuroReef for donating it to the club for raffle. steve

    For those that care...............

    In my bill from DirecTV, it had an advert in it for Setanta Sports. Claims they are the 2006 FIFA World Cup Germany licensed broadcaster. $11.95/mo. Anyone know anything about this channel? Will it be in HD? I suspect it is much like Univision, but in English. Thoughts? s

    check valve

    I use an electronic shut off valve from LifeReef.com. Expensive (about $60), but flawless. If power is on to run the pump for flow through the kalk reactor, the shut off is opened. When power goes out, it shuts off the flow. No siphoning and back flow. Perfect. Make sure this baby is on the fresh water side of the reactor. Check valves rarely work due to the cracking pressure issue. Another strategy is a peristaltic dosing pump. No siphoning ever. s

    National Aquarium

    Because of MACNA, we have the interest of the Nat'l Aqu'm in DC's president. He'd love for us to do something together. As a courtesy, I do not think I can give out his info on a public forum. Call me at 703.319.3171 and we can chat about how to do this. Ok?
  15. We are about to update the WAMAS website with info about the MACNA experience. Care to share stories about the event? If you have photos, would you please email them to Nathan at bizonthenet@comcast.net. We'll post what you send! Descriptions would be nice, as we may need help understanding what you send... Thanks to all who participated in the event. TIA to those that post and send pictures! steve
