Haha yes!! The whole meeting was about 2 topics, pronouncing scientific names, which I found I was horrible at, and electricity. The electricity part was pretty interesting. We absolutely need gfci in our houses, which is pretty basic knowledge but the thing that was interesting is that they explained how they worked. It pretty scary how simple it is and how if you do just the wrong thing, it will think your a lightbulb and you'll die. It just measures how much electricity is going in and how much is leaving, if the ratio is different, it shuts off. I also learned that power strips need to be a certain type, I think they called it individual receptical, meaning that each outlet on the strip has a separate mould, rather than them all having one copper mould.
I also talked to Anthony Calfo one on one about my dilemma with the candycane not opening up as much as I thought it would and he said that it was most likely fine. He said that some Lps
just don't open up that much. The polyps don't have to open up that much if it is already getting the food it needs, that is just wasting energy otherwise. If I really do think it's a problem though, I could add 1 teaspoon of sugar to the tank to get more polyp extension for a little while, just to see how much the candy cane can actually extend. The only problem with that is that it wastes there mucus, which is very hard for them to make.
The only thing I wished I would have brought up is the idea of a Xenia scrubber, I completely forgot.
Soo yeah, I learned a ton. The clove polyps are opening up a little,VERY neon green lol. Can't find the star as I expected..
