Yes you heard it folks! For the first time in California reef club history we will be holding a club vs club zoanthid grow-out contest. Our sister club, Northern Valley Reefers has agreed to have a friendly zoa grow-out with us the Bay Area Reefers! As the new BAR Vice President. I am looking forward to 2016 and I see huge improvements and fun events for this club on the horizon. I am so excited and honored to grow out some zoas with one of the finest reef club in Northern California, NVR! About the Northern Valley Reefers If you are from the San Joaquin County area or near it, you should definitely be a part of the Northern Valley Reefers! They hold exciting monthly events and fun contests. Every year during the NVR Open/Regional Frag Swap, a couple of us bay area folks drive to stockton to participate in their frag swap and NVR does definitely throw one of the best frag swaps around. http://nvreefers.org/ Much of the improvements/event ideas I made in 2015 were based off of advice from NVR's President and events/contests that they run. Hunting for Nice Zoas I'll be on the prowl for some very nice zoa colonies to start off this epic zoa grow-out contest. So if you (vendor or hobbyist) have a super nice colony of zoas you want to donate/sell for this epic grow-out, send me a private message. Expected Start Date: February or April 2016. Depending on how busy I am.
