Is there any interest in food samples and calcium clay so ill know howmuch to pack? ?
I'd like some guppy grass and a variety of mosses if anyone is bringing

Definitely interested in alder cones, food samples, IAL, and maybe calcium clay. So it just removes toxins from water and stabilizes PH?

Can I ask that anyone who wants a baby bristlenose pm me so I'll know exactly how many to bring? Snails and plants, I'm just going to bring a bunch and they can be subdivided as needed easily enough, but fish will be bagged specifically for people; they're harder to rebag away from the home and I don't want to drag any extras downtown just to take them home again.

Up to 3 each are free for this meet up, if you want more make me a reasonable offer.

just did a walk through today, was in the neighborhood.

started with Pacific, picked up 3 asian algae eaters and dwarf hc.

they had some nice nano tanks on display in front of the store.



Win 38 didn't have much.

the little one in Little Italy wasn't much to write about as well.

btw, Pacific is promising a big shipment on Sunday. Said they didn't get one last week due to the hurricane
