    ORA Mandarin Gobies in HD

    ORA Mandarin Gobies were on full display at MACNA 2010. Dustin Dorton and the ORA crew proudly boasted their baby Mandarins that were quite fond of Nutramar Ova (Prawn Eggs). Both the Splendids (Synchiropus splendidus) and Spotted (Synchiropus picturatus) were shown in a nice, low flow mandarin dominated habitat. Interestingly ORA is already beginning to […]

    Florida Fish and Wildlife was Invited to MACNA, Rightfully So?

    While some vendors were not so professional, others welcomed the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s (FWC) place at MACNA 2010.

[UPDATE: The AI Wave has since been renamed to the befitting AI Flare]. Each 12″ AI Flare packs 5 Cree XP LEDs, with whites boasting the latest […]

    A Look at the New Profilux Touch

    The Profilux Touch made its first public appearance yesterday at the kick off of MACNA 2010. The Touch that GHL has on display is still very much a prototype, with functionality limited to two buttons. That said, the touch screen interface is a promising way to quickly adjust controls on the Profilux III (P3) controller. […]
