    The Mid-Michigan Marine Club (MMMC) will be hosting the Lansing swap on Sunday, January 29, 2012. This year, we are happy to announce that it will be co-hosted by the Grand Rapids Marine Aquarium Society (GRMAS). The joint swap promises to be bigger and better with many vendors and an outstanding raffle of livestock and dry goods.

    This event has grown into one of the largest reef aquarium events in Michigan. Attendance last year exceeded 450 hobbyists from across the Midwest and included vendors from Michigan and several states outside of Michigan. With the GRMAS, this event will be the largest reef hobby event in Michigan! The combined event is being called Michigan Coral Expo and Swap (MCES). We anticipate a record turnout this year. Vendor's don't wait to get your space reserved table space is limited!

    DATE: Sunday January 29, 2012

    TIME: The main doors will be open to the general public from 12:00 noon to 5:00 pm. On the day of the swap, doors will open for setup at 9 am. Only those who have purchased tables will be allowed in at that time.

    LOCATION: The swap will be at the same place we have had it in the past:

    *3-Speed Adjustable Flow switch - The BlowHole TM pumps by ReeFlo feature a unique 3-speed AdjustaFlow switch that allows you to instantly choose flow rates, pressure and watt draw from three different settings. Cut the flow and watt draw in half during the night or at feeding time and then instantly switch back when desired.

    while churning inside the pump head. The BlowHole TM uses an aluminum cast motor which dissipates heat before it can reach the water.

    FROM REEFNUTRITION:
    [​IMG]
    Three bottles of each of the following great products!!
    -Phyto-Feast: Phyto-Feast is a blend of the most important marine microalgae, those chosen by universities and hatcheries for their superior nutritional value: Pavlova, Isochrysis, Thalassiosira, Tetraselmis and Nannochloropsis.
    -Roti-Feast: For superior color, vitality and growth-rates Roti-Feast is a highly nutritious plankton feed perfect for hardcorals, larval fish, and other reef carnivores that feed on small zooplankton
    -Arcti-Pods: Arcti-Pods are large, nutrition-packed planktonic copepods (3000 microns) harvested fresh from artic waters. In the ocean, copepods form the basis for much of the marine food chain.
    -Tigger-Pods: Tigger-Pods are attractive large red copepods, Tigriopus califoricus. They swim upwards with a stimulating, jerky swimming motion which is attractive to both fish and people. Finicky fish love them!
    -Macro Feast: Macro-Feast - Gracilaria pacifica is simply the best live feed for all of your herbivorous fishes. Hard to feed Tangs, Moorish Idols and Angels, simply love this algae, and its presence will help the feeding response of most other finicky fish as well.
    -Fuzzy Phytes: Fuzzy-Phytes are live red macroalgae with very fine filamentous branches. Their nutritional value is similar to other red algae.
    -Oyster Feast: Reef Nutrition's Oyster-Feast is a mix of both oyster eggs and ovarian tissue (1-200 microns) for feeding SPS,LPS corals, and other invertebrates.
    -Mysis Feast: Mysis-Feast is refrigerated, concentrated freshwater shrimp harvested by Piscine Energetics from pristine cold lakes fed by mountain glaciers. Mysis feed on phytoplankton and have a balanced nutritional profile high in Omega-3 and -6 fatty acids.
