We’ve got a bit more MACNA info and images to roll out in the near future, but here’s some eye candy for those who were not able to attend. For those who have never been to MACNA it is a cardinal sin hopefully it will you give you an idea of the event. Better than the exhibitors and the speakers are the people you meet and the discussions that take place.
A view of the MACNA floor from the back–it was a huge space.
Rod and SaraB representing the IL reefers. Three new Rods Food blends were on display–Fish Eggs, Algae, and Pacific Plankton.
TECO chillers always has a great display, and the best lemonade–kept at a cool 37F.
EcoTech brought the full Vortech pump line and brought a nice LCD TV to show off their revamped website. More to come on EcoTech and some interesting ideas for Vortech placement.
Colin of Coral Morphologic showed up sustainably collected Ricordea florida.
If it’s not hot, then it wasn’t in this display by Todd and Brett of Cherry Corals. This tank was illuminated by LET Lighting’s module T5 system. This tank was full of LPS wonders.
John “Copps” Coppolino giving his talk on Angelfish. John is a great guy and a good friend–I assure you will not find anyone more passionate about Pomacanthidae than him. In his slide you can see a photo of him with GBD contributor Tetsuo Otake in Japan.
Curt of Neptune Systems showing off their Apex Controller
UV Lighting exhibited their range of T5 lamps
Plenty of bright corals on display–this Fungia was a looker
On Sunday we said our goodbyes while many anxiously waited to hear the number called in the raffle. It was a Floridian who walked away with the 300g tank–good luck to Julio with that set up.
A special thanks to Manhattan Reefs for throwing a great party Saturday night, full of cocktails, guitar hero and a bizarre mix of wigs and devil horns. I am sure some of those stories and photos will become MACNA relics in the years to come. Florida has a big act to follow, but we’re sure it will be just as good–See you there in 2010.
