    A couple little birds reminded me tonight that next Tuesday is our scheduled Fish Food Meeting. So Please sign up here if interested in attending 6 PM next Tuesday May 12th at Austins house (once you have signed up Austin will PM you his address). This will be a members only meeting as the club will subsidize some of the ingredients with the Des Moines Area GIRS budget. I will post a tentative recipe soon that will be based on JJ's.
    I am guessing the admission to this event will be about $10, but that will depend on the cost of the ingredients and the number of people that show up.
    So please sign up in this thread now.

    I would love to hear what you guys have to put together for some homemade food. I make my own every once and a while, it's nice to hear what others use. I live in Cedar Falls though, won't be able to make the trip. Will you guys be listing the ingredients later? Maybe the people from Waterloo/Cedar Falls could make some at a stop on our next tank tour.

    Is there anyone coming this way(CF or Waterloo) that I could buy a share of the food by chance?

    With only 5 people we wont buy that much. I think we will go with $10 each and then the club will pay for the balance.
    So everyone bring your $10 tomorrow night. It will be well worth it!

    Hey guys, writing this real quick from work. The person who was supposed to come in to relieve my shift so I could come down on time can't make it due to overtime issues. Hrray for me being told last minute... I get off of work at 6:30 and it's a little under an hour for me to get to Des Moines, so I am thinking you will all be pretty done. I have no problem paypaling the 10 bucks to someone since I know you all were counting on it. Sorry it is so last minute, not much I can do /DesktopModules/ActiveForums/themes/_default/emoticons/sad.gif
    Have fun!

    Well gave it a try when I got home and the fish sure seem to like it! Corals seemed to pull it out of the water as well.
