Darin Reinke and the Great Lakes Aquarium truly overwhelmed us last week with a MASSIVE donation of CORAL for the Zoo's Reef Tank.  They filled 2 5-gallon buckets and a huge black tub to the brims with surplus coral that was just sitting in the "back of the house", taking over holding tanks, fragments from breaking while maintaining the tanks of all things.

As time permits I'll try to figure out a better inventory of what was provided, but from memory there were three types of chalice corals, including three ultra massive colonies, tons of Claustrea / Candy Cane Coral, which is fragged and will likely be sold off to fund raise, a few big hunks of an orange Monti Digi; some other type of lumpy branching Monti, a few Pocilliopora frags...just tons.

I'd estimate the retail value of the contribution to be easily in excess of $2000.

While not necessarily a donation directly to the Zoo Reef / LSZOO, Ben made a $13 cash donation to the club at tonight's meeting...and since basically all the club money is getting invested with the zoo's reef, effectively, I'm sure that's where the money will wind up going sooner or later. THANKS BEN!

Update, due to some items not arriving, the Club's contribution to the zoo came in at $98 instead of $142.

And tonight, Ben made a $13 cash donation to the club as well.

New Club Balance = $123.00

for 6/7/18, the Club is making a $142 donation, which helped secure a donation from Biota of corals. Our donation includes:

4 Sapphire Damselfish, Pomacentrus pavo Palau, F1, captive-bred, Biota Palau
Radiated Filefish, Acreichthys radiata Palau, captive-bred, Biota Palau, 1m/1f pair
2 Tridacna squamosa  Palau, aquacultured, 4-5 CM
Zoo % of Bioto Shipping Charges ($67.90) (approx. $0.17 per $1 in the shipment).

While I won't publicly post the breakdown (it would reveal wholesale values which are generally considered confidential), the expense to LSMAC is $142.  That's money well spent, looking at what we're getting to add to the zoo reef!
