    A suggestion was made to coordinate a fish order with a meeting so folks could pick up their fish at the same time.

    I think it’d be cool to discuss refugiums in more detail and see what some people have come up with. Seems like most people are moving towards refugiums and macroalgae as a significant portion of if not the main source of nutrient export :)
