Default aquarium tours

During the days of MASM we would occasionally have a "member tank tour" whereas a group would have an afternoon set aside to drive from one members home to the next to chat, possibly trade a frag and admire each individuals aquarium.

It really was a lot of fun...

Any interest in trying to put something together like this over the summer?
(Funny I see I had a similar post back in 2003, I could house a lot more folks back then-Yikes that is a long time ago...and here I am starting up again.

I think it's a great idea, it's hard to get people involved in the forum. Especially now that there is a Facebook group.

Hmmm... Never knew about a facebook group. Not to worry, I'll never join the group.
Not particularly fond of facebook and what they support. I login to see what my daughters are up too, its posted before we ever get a call If it went down tomorrow, I would have a toast to all the folks that left the site...

This site was hopping at one time, it may have changed when he sold it off to the Canadian company? Who knows, it appears that a few local folks are starting to use it again. For me I just like meeting folks in the hobby, learn,trade,etc...

Id be game for that. Work in Livonia and live down river so would be nice to meet some other reefers locally to trade and see how others have had success.

We had fun doing the MASM tank tours and would be happy to start doing them again if there is interest.

Get a few more and maybe we can start looking at where folks are located to see what can be set up...
I wish my aquarium has been up longer but... I am off to a good start.

I might be interested. Definitely be worth the drive for me. Not to mention the kid loves seeing new corals/fish. Maybe even enough to forgive me for the drive!

I'd be interested but I'd imagine if you hosted, you couldn't go on the tour as well
