      Whenever I see setups of Reef Nutrition, part of me wonders where the ramen bowl is :D

      Just got back from Aquatic collection to pick up the raffle prizes and couldn't resist getting a tiny blue tuxedo urchin (Hoping he eats all the stupid coralline algae that keeps growing on my glass). Acclimating him now, then labelling time :D

      Come to the swap hungry. Theresa and I will be selling pizza, water, and candy to benefit the Walk to End Alzheimer's. Donations will be gratefully accepted also. Thank you.

      This is a personal request, not sure what the club's policy is on this. But I personally think containers should be labeled on the top, that way you can scan all the labels at once as looking at the sides is going to be quite time consuming. Then if you like what you see on top you can peek at it from the side (or perhaps the top also if you don't write too big)
    12. Enderturtle
      I think it's a little too late for that Mike.

      I agree with you though, label is best put on top. Maybe we can try it at the members swap. (heck sometimes people show up with NO labels at all lol)

      It would slow stuff down big time to have people re-do labels or write on the top.
    13. Vhuang168
      There isn't much room on top. Maybe just the name of the coral? I can do that.

      Writing the coral name on the lid would go a long ways to making things easier.

      Heck you could do a hybrid thing, coral name on lid, then all the other info on the side.

      Parking Lot B12 is closest to the Cafeteria 2300 Building - $2 parking fee.

      FYI, I signed up around the first of the month and my name is not on the attendee list. Got confirmation from Paypal.
    17. mray2660

      You are okay. We received your payment.

    18. Vhuang168
      Parking machine does NOT give change so bring exactly $2
