IMAS Sand Exchange:
The "Sand Exchange" is an awesome way to increase the bio diversity of your Reef and/or Marine aquarium. The way is works is, each participant brings an 8 oz cup of live sand to the IMAS meeting. At the meeting, all the sand will be gently mixed together. Once mixed, the sand is divided back up and you take home a cup of sand that has a little of each in it. This is an awesome way to increase the bio diversity in you sand bed. Currently just plan on bringing sugar sized sand like is used in shallow and deep sand beds. If there is enough interest, we can start a coarse sand exchange. If you are interested in participating in the sand exchange, just bring a cup to the November meeting.
IMAS MembershipMembership fees are an annual donation of $24 ($2 per month) to help promote the growth of the club, distribute newsletters, and provide benefits such as local aquarium store discounts, and bringing in expert speakers. The club will not officially endorse nor promote any local aquarium store, but each member may feel free to express their opinions on this or any related matter.
IMAS has gone through some surprising growth in the past few years, and we are excited to meet the needs of all of those folks interested in our club. Like the club, the hobby as a whole has been changing very rapidly. Whether we're talking about pending legislation or trends in marine husbandry, we all need to keep abreast of these changes so that we may become better informed and a more successful hobbyist.
