Topic: "Beyond the Brink: Lessons from Coral Triage to Rehabilitation"
Presenter: Nikki "ReefdUp" Bridges
Thursday (Oct 3) is our regularly scheduled club meeting.

Nikki is a WMAS member, an engineer, military spouse, and mom to two crazy kids. In her infinite spare time, her passion for the last twelve years has been rehabilitating hundreds of injured/diseased coral and fish.


Her favorite moments include defeating bizarre pests, eliminating diseases, successfully beating “brown jelly”, and still managing to safeguard her favorite rescues as she moves back and forth across the country. This passion likely stems from growing up in a family dedicated to rescuing wild animals and native plants. She has over thirty years in the aquarium hobby and currently has a 120 gallon mixed reef and four quarantine/treatment tanks – ask her what it is like to move that from state to state!
 
Topic: Back from the Brink: Lessons from Coral Triage to Rehabilitation

 

This isn’t your grandpa’s reef tank; these aren’t your average everyday problems. You won’t find aiptasia anemones, red planaria flatworms, or marine ich here. Instead, join us as we delve into corallivorous spiders, camouflaged nudibranchs, tentacle(?)-wielding flatworms, predatory pods, and other unusual pests and diseases encountered through rescuing corals at their worst. Learn troubleshooting techniques and treatment protocols through short case studies. So sit back, relax, enjoy copious photographs, and know that there is still hope.


Please plan to join us at the Rose Garden at 7pm.  

As always we will have snacks and door prizes :-)

Reef Kingdom will also be in the house with some AMAZING frags for sale.

Are you wondering what we're going to cover? Wondering why you should attend?

Have you ever had a dying coral? Yes? Then this meeting is for you.

You will not want to miss this regardless if you have ever had a dying coral or not. I plan on telling all of Nikki's secrets at the meeting. Be there!

Agreed! She had a ton new information in her presentation and had an amazing interactive topic with lots of audience participation!

What did everyone else like about the meeting from last night?

It was nice to see how some of those coral came back from almost nothing. The superglue around the edges of dying coral was a good idea to hold down tissue and prevent pests.
