    Parade of Tanks

    By saltyfish808,

    Hello everyone! Over the next few weeks I will be trying to get together a few different dates for a Parade of Tanks! I will be looking to cover several different areas. Hopefully be able to get 3 to 4 tanks to visit for each date. I know many of you like me , have beautiful reef tanks and never really get to share them with others besides family and a few friends. I'm sure most of you have gotten the same question from your visitors that I have, "Is this saltwater?" Being able to show off all your hard work to other reef addicts such as myself is always exciting and I promise no one  will ask that! Please feel free to message me if you have interest in opening your home to our members. As I get interest in an area I will set a date and try to get it booked with a day of parading.
