    The location of the event is at the NCC Pavillion , 250 Ansborough Ave. I believe the 257 number is the office address.

    Speaker: Marc Levenson

    Come join us for 2 great presentations:

    Marc “melev” Levenson has been in the hobby since 1998, blogging his experiences about his own reef on melevsreef.com to help others learn husbandry skills. Most recently he’s become an online personality with tens of thousands of followers on his YouTube channel (melevsreef) also geared at helping other reefers through his personal experiences. His website’s articles, blogs, and Critter ID cover topics like pest control, feeding techniques, working with acrylics, reef photography and water chemistry to name a few. His online store carries many products like his RODI systems, custom sumps and even includes some items that he himself invented as clever solutions to make reefkeeping easier. Marc is a nationally recognized speaker, who regularly recommends supporting local club events, shopping local fish stores, and interacting with others via social media. His other hobby is diving, exploring natural reefs. His current tanks are a 400-gallon reef and a 60-gallon anemone cube, filled with captive bred fish and aquacultured corals.

    Marc will present 2 topics. Each will be 30 minutes followed by 15 min for Q/A

    10:00: Critters & Pests in the Aquarium - Identifies most of the good guys and the bad guys, and how to remove them.

    10:45: Aquascaping - What looks best, what to avoid, bonding rock together, pre-planning for pegging, live rock versus dry rock, plus the value of natural filtration.
