Since it’s success last year, the Reading MaidenHead Aquatics store will be hosting yet another Open Weekend event, which celebrates the 5th year of the store being open, this upcoming weekend (18 – 19 May 2013).

I will at the event on Saturday and will be presenting “Nano Reef Aquariums: Seeing the bigger picture”. I will be discussing the role that nano reef aquariums play within the marine aquarium hobby from simple inexpensive systems all the way through to high-end species specific aquariums. Nano reef aquariums maybe small, but the possibilities are endless as I’m sure you will agree.

UPDATE: In addition to being at the event for Saturday, I will also be setting up 2 nano reef system, 94litres and 13litres.
