Coming soon, Casino Reef, and Shedding Some Light: the Coral Care Difference. This week Jeremy had some different maintenance demands to be taken care of and is seeing good growth in the frag system, and Peter is making progress on algae, enjoying some healthy fish, and growing out a very interesting Zoa garden. All this and more on Episode 120 of the Reef News Network.
Jeremy- Kat Dhawan – It’s been 2 years since Kevin Costa from Hanna Instruments talked to me about the possibility of a Nitrate checker on a podcast I did for Marine Depot. They announced the upcoming checker less than 24 hours ago and I bet everybody is itching to pre-order. It still feels like the best kept secret though because at the time of writing this article, a search for nitrate checker on Hanna’s website did not show the cute new lilac family member. In fact, even Hanna’s instagram is curiously silent on the subject. I found a link to the much-awaited checker from a different Instagram Hanna has.
Peter – New snorkeling reef at Casino Beach finished, wildlife already appearing. Escambia County’s new snorkeling reef at Casino Beach is finally installed and already attracting wildlife. Contractors for the county wrapped up installation Saturday morning on the reef, which is located roughly 600 to 700 feet off the shore, depending on the tide, east of the fishing pier. The project was paid for with a $59,500 grant from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and is made up of 17 reef modules.
