Day one came to an end around 10 pm last night.
The day kicked off at noon with a talk by Julian Sprung and concluded with a 7 pm reception. The day was full of great talks from some of the biggest names in the hobby, including MD Forum Moderator Frank Marini closing the day with a talk on fish breeding (which has inspired me to once again start breeding Bangaii Cardinals).
There are tons of manufacturer booths and hobbyists all coming together to talk reef. MD Forum Moderator Steven Pro also gave a presentation Friday afternoon entitled "Propagation as a Business: From Frag Tank to Full Facility." Unfortunately, I was not able to make it (sorry, Steven!).
Today (Saturday) will begin with a talk from Scott Michael at 8:00 am and the lectures keep rolling all day long. I am looking forward to MD forum moderator Kelly Jedliki's presentation at 1:00 pm.
I have taken quite a few pictures and will start posting some of them here on Sunday/Monday with more in the MD Forums.
Check back soon for more!
