Greetings Reefkeeping readers! With
this issue we begin a new turnover with the magazine, now
featuring a completely re-worked editorial staff.
It is with great delight that I announce
that I've immediately let go Skip Attix, the previous Managing
Editor and replaced him with myself. Skip was much too involved
here and was sometimes known to spend hours on end working
on this magazine. We will have no such measley dedication
while I'm here... I promise you. In this same vein, we are
currently reviewing the job performance of John Link and may
possibly retain him on the board of Advisors or possibly he
is more suited for the janitorial staff. However, this is
Effective beginning with the May
issue, all articles in Reefkeeping will be featuring
1/4 page ads. We'd like to welcome our first new premier
sponsor: Swiss P!ss. Their fine line of aquarium
additives, featuring Reef Shake, is second to none.
Recent additive studies by several well-respected authors
have shown Reef Shake to be the industry leader in its
category by providing essential enzymes attracted by
the magnetic forces radiated by all coral reef organisms.
Our second sponsor to sign up is
Divine Underwater Figurines. Seen here in our
favorite pose is their latest figurine for the modern
coral reef aquarium: Dolly the
Mermaid. Just imagine having that in your reef
tank! The emerald green color, as well as the yellowish
blonde hair, will surely add some wonderful color so
often desired by reefkeepers. Click on the image below
for a full sized version of this beauty.
Additionally, in a move to help support
our sponsors, the magazine will be moving back to the
old Reef Central server. The new editorial staff has
determined that the new RC server is too fast and allows
too many people to view the pages without wading through
the commercial messages so graciously provided by our
sponsors. This will not be allowed any longer! We are
certain that this is best, both for you, and for the
We sincerely hope that many of you are pleased that we have
discontinued the feature: ReefSlides. This is nothing more than
'eye candy,' pure and simple. No such content will be featured
in this magazine from this point going forward. We will be concentrating
on the more common, everyday tank that most of our readers have.
Note the new type of pictures we will be running on the Table
of Contents page.
Enjoy the new magazine...
