Penn State University reef

I don't know if anyone is familiar with Sanjay Joshi from PSU. He is one of the top experts on reef lighting. He's written tons of article on lighting and has a nice site for metal halide lighting comparisons.

To make a long story short, Sanjay was looking for some pink zoa's for the 500 gallon Penn State reef tank from members of NCPARS (North Central PA Aquarium Reef Society). I happened to have what he was looking for and he offered me a trade. I am giving him a piece of rubble with about 30 pink zoa's and in return, this was his offer: "I can get you frags of 4 different color morphs of acropora millipora - pink, blue, pink with blue tips, and green. The frags will be 1.5-2"."

Needless to say I am totally thrilled. Not only to meet Sanjay, but to get coral out of that awesome tank, AND have my coral in there. I'm meeting him next Sat. I can't wait!

I sent that photo to a colleage who is PSU alum. He sent me back a photo he has of the tank and then sent me a photo of the 3,000 circular tank at his vet's. I'll post that later (I need to resize it).

Just a quick update. We had a bad ice storm all day Friday and not knowing road conditions we pushed back our meeting until tomorrow (2-3) at 11 AM. I can wait another day.
