          GSAS had a great Potluck with Tom Barr last night! We feasted on wild salmon, chicken, meatballs, side dishes, and homemade pies. Tom shared some of his views on substrates, CO2 levels, and lighting limited planted aquariums during a question and answer period.

          I am really looking forward to learning more at the presentation on Tuesday night!

              Hi barbarossa,

              I understand your pain! The club takes care of the travel, and provides lodging but we do not "pay" speakers. We cover the expenses with our two big annual auctions (Plant Auction / Big Annual Auction). Room rental, refreshments, and other club expenses are covered by a "mini-auction" at the end of the meetings where the seller and the club split the revenue 50/50. We are a registered non-profit in the State of Washington.

              BTW, we are at 36 hours and counting folks; that's right we are down to just hours!

                Hi Seattle_Aquarist,

                Maybe I should look to join a similar club in the NYC area. I wonder if Tom had any invitations from such a club in the NY tristate area. I am sure if he comes here in the future, I'll find out. I'll even go to Boston , Philly or DC.

                    Have a blast! Meeting Tom and touring the Behemoth was one of the coolest things I've gotten out of our hobby If there's any chance for video or an audio recording of his presentation, it's appreciated!

                      Hi Wet,

                      Erik Olson is our club videographer; he also does the AGA and ACA conventions. If we have permission from a speaker to video the presentation, he is the one that will do it!

                          Hi All,

                          Tom gave an awesome presentation! We had one of our largest meeting attendances for a GSAS meeting and the number of "guests" and new member sign-ups was significant!

                          Tom discussed several subjects including photosynthesis and how light, carbon, and nutrients can be manipulated to affect plant growth. My initial takeaway from that aspect of the talk was a light limited CO2 enhanced environment can provide good plant growth (not necessarily maximum growth) while minimizing the opportunity for algae growth.
