    Hi Everyone,

    Im wondering if any of the ZEO sponsors are supporting the upcoming Saltwater U?

    The Atlanta Reef Club introduced SaltwaterU in 2005 as a 1-day educational program. The event was held at Zoo Atlanta and included a full day of activities: speaking events, raffles, meals with our experts, and a regional coral frag swap. The speaker lineup included Eric Borneman, Dr. Sylvia Earle, Chris Hetlage, James Hrynshyn, Dr. Bill Light, Scott Michael, Ray O'Conner, Walt Smith, and Jeff Swanagan.
    The event was a great success for everyone involved, and it was evident that the ARC could bring more education to the public by expanding the event the next year.

    You may still view the 2005 SaltwaterU website.

    With the Georgia Aquarium, now the largest and "most engaging" aquarium in the world, opening in November, 2005 in Atlanta, it only made sense that the venue be held in cooperation with the Aquarium. The first major speaker and the kickoff party will actually be held in the Cold Water Quest exhibit, right in front of the beluga whales!

    This year, the event has been expanded to a three-day conference plus an additional excursion to Gray's Reef for both teens and adults. Speakers from around the world will be giving talks based on the findings from their ongoing research.
    This event is made possible by our sponsors. Eight arms of sponsorship have been setup, providing a range of sponsorships for corresponding exposure through advertising. The sponsorship will give exposure to all those that attend the event, visit this website, read the brochure, and to those that will be at the Aquarium during the event. Please visit the sponsor section for more information.

    All raffle donations are gratefully accepted, as long as they fall within the guidelines set forth. These donations are a great way to promote products and push exposure!
    I think it would be a great way to promote the ZEOvit method.

    System: 430ltr SPS ZEOvit system, Balling Method (Growtech), BubbleKing200, Profilux with LAN and Salinity
    Lighting: Dimmbar 54w T5: D&D and KZ mixture.
    Flow: Tunze 6060, Iwaki MX70 CL + penductors

    You do not have to attend SWU2 in order to make a contribution.

    After attending the event's first year (2005), I was greatly impressed, and this year will undoubtedly be even better. It doesn't take much to provide a valuable contribution and promote ZEOvit (as Josh said). If interested, please send an email to this address: [email protected]
