Something on RO systems would be useful I think. Potentially something on calculating dosage and proper testing practices. Methods to reduce and get rid of hair algae. Something about tank cleaning. Could always do more about lighting. Something about the different types of corals and their requirements.

These are great. I'd suggest a big demo on how to frag. I'd also be interested in a lecture on unusual inverts.
I'm thinking of heading up a store tour contest for March (tell your about it later).

How about more meanings about the big blue ocean like:
Ocean conservation
Best Snorkeling/Diving
Highlight different geographic areas and the animals there

Highlight different fish/animals and their unique qualities/lives

What are current developments for captive fish breeding (like the yellow tang in Hawaii)

Ways to post pics on the website

different techniques and ideas
freshwater tanks seems to be a lot more creative, why not in salt water?

Recharging DI resin

Fish Food
make your own vs buy
best kinds
most polluted ones

Log Keeping
what info needs to be tracked and why? Benefits?

Process of a fish or coral being in the wild to your tank:
Capture methods-some better than others. How to know and what to look for?
whole sellers-do they hold them somewhere or what do they do with them?
fish stores-what quarantine methods do each of the local stores do around here and what are they doing to ensure I'm getting a healthy fish?

more than clean your glass, don't follow the fish, use a tripod, etc.
What lighting for photo (get the blue out)
Adjust white balance?
Shutter Speed vs Aperture vs ISO
Principles of photography for an aquarium
Avoid glare off of glass

Corals change color under different conditions:
What are the conditions do what to different colors?
Why does a red planet go green?
Why do they change under LED's?
Water chemistry affecting colors?
