There was some pretty good stuff. Tons of rainbows at least compared to last year.

Hopefully you can make the fall auction.

Working every weekend stinks sometimes because a lot of the good stuff happens on the weekends

Are there much in the way of good African Cichlid breeders in Colorado?

My cousin is planning an African Cichlid tank and I am curious what type of stock might be available locally.

Have you noticed much focus on African Cichlids at any of these auctions?

Just send him to any of the Cichlid club meetings. These people have an unbelievable number of fish. The national convention is going to be here in July.

Where to put plants?

Now is the time to buy more tanks. If you don't have room for all the plants then you are "tank challenged". More tanks! That is the answer to all questions.

Tanks: 2@100, 2@75 12@55, 5@40, 2@30, 30@29, 45@20, 10@10, auto water change system, all planted, endangered and extinct in the wild fish, many C.A.R.E.S list, lots and lots of angels, discus and anything challenging.
