Join us Thursday February 6th at the Rose Garden Building in Sugar House Park as guest speaker Scott Fellman, will be discussing Marine and Freshwater Macro algae. How they benefit our systems and what they require to thrive in our systems.  Scott has visited the club before for both club meetings and Mountain West Reef Fest, he is highly requested and a great speaker. While his latest employment opportunity has taken him into the freshwater world, His background has been in Marine systems and animal and plant life. He has a world of knowledge and is ready to talk Algae!

What is Algae? What are it's benefits in our aquarium systems? What do they need in order to thrive in our aquariums? What are the specifics for the most common species. Scott will delve into the species, the nutrients they need, the importance of having in our systems and the benefit they have in reducing built up nitrogen cycle elements from our tanks.

Scott's Bio:
I'm the consummate "fish nerd"! I bleed saltwater! And yes, I think there's a lot of freshwater in there, too!
Much of my life centers around tweaking my protein skimmer, scraping  algae, cleaning up spills, or figuring out how to unglue my fingers.  I've been keeping marine aquariums since I was a kid, and during that  time, I have maintained all sorts of aquariums, fish bowls, plastic  boxes, and just about anything that can hold water. My passions are  aquascaping and marine biotope aquariums. I love this hobby and the  crazy people in it!
I've mentored fellow hobbyists since 2002 on Bob Fenner's WetWebMedia.com site, and I was Co-Editor of WWM's Conscientious  Aquarist online magazine for a couple of years. I served as president  the Marine Aquarium Society of Los Angeles County, in 2006. I've written  a number of articles for Freshwater and Marine Aquarium Magazine,  Ultramarine UK, Tropical Fish Hobbyist, Marine Fish and Reef USA Annual,  "C" Journal, and other online venues, such as Reef Addicts and Reefs.com.  I write a weekly blog on the Reef Builders web site, where I  blog on a variety of reef-related topics.
In addition to my writing, I have racked up the frequent-flyer miles, travelling all over the U.S. and internationally, speaking at clubs and  events about all sorts of reef-and freshwater aquarium-related stuff.  I presented at MACNA XIX in Pittsburgh, IMAC 2008 in Chicago, MACNA XX in  Atlanta, and MACNA XI in Atlantic City, MACNA XXII in Orlando, MACNA  XXII in Des Moines, MACNA XXIII in Dallas, as well as IMAC West in Long  Beach, and Reef-a-Palooza!  I'm really trying to complete a book on  marine biotope aquaria and aquascaping before this century is over, and  I'm sure my aquarium is due for a water change at some point!
I am partner in a Los Angeles-based online marine livestock retailer,  Unique Corals, marketing sustainably collected, aquacultured, and captive propagated corals, fishes, and invertebrate.
When I'm not trying to replicate the ocean in my aquariums, I'm usually  surfing in it at my local beach, dining at new restaurants (another great love), watching ice hockey, or SCUBA diving.

As always we will have, food, raffle items and more at the event.
You won't want to miss this meeting!
