    Its been a long time since we had a DIY food event in Des Moines. Maybe 2 years. So, everyone should be good and ready to make some more!!!

    So reserve the date of April 6th. We will be making DIY food at Dave Roth's house. This will likely be a morning event. Time not yet set.

    I will be working out some of the details in this next week - like size of package, estimated price......

    We don't have a tank tour set up this year, but this will be a great opportunity to see Dave's 2 large tanks!! They are beauties!! @Dave@Dave - maybe you could give a few details about size....

    @GIRS Member - post here if you are interested. After details are put together, we will ask for how many bags you are interested in!

    Must be a GIRS member to purchase the DIY food.

    DIY food - bag count:

    Dave - 12
    PWfish - 3
    Maureen - 3 or 4
    Daalbers - 5
    Waterrat41 - 1
    Barrett - 1
    Reef medic Clay - 3
    Mark Eimers - 1
    Tamerd - 1
    Beckerj3 - 2
    MillerTime ISU - 6-8

    Total: 38 - 41 bags

    Just now saw this....yes April 6 will work but probably late morning to early afternoon would work best that day.

    We have 2 tanks. An in-wall 210 SPS dominant which has been running for 5.5 years. Stocking is primarily "reef safe with caution" fish with 2 large Angel's and a moorish idol being the centerpiece fish (along with a 10" sailfin tang we've had for 10 years). Currently making some changes to this tank.

    Our other tank is a 300 DD with a 180 sump that is a mixed reef. We did this tank as a reset to a 280 we had formerly set up. Tank has had some challenges the past year but getting things back on track.

    Looking forward to the event! See you all there.

    @Dave@Dave - I'd like to get this listed on the event page for GIRS and our FB page. Does 11:00 work for you?

    You're welcome to have some chaeto from our sump with 2 caveats:

    1. It has some caulerpa in it
    2. No guarantee it is aptasia free
