Someone gave me a baggie of a bunch of mystery plants - wanted to say thanks and - okay, there is NO non awkward way to say this, who was it?

I had way more fun than I thought I would, so nice to meet up again. And actually thanks to MrBrongher for getting us back on track after we went down the wrong street trying to get to the meet see, this is why we should carpool and stuff, it's harder to get lost!

Jellie, the shrimp are sooo awesome! So big! They made themselves right at home and pounced on breakfast this morning.

I was somewhat interested in the Bettas that where up for auction but not nearly interested as currently that color strain isn't what I'm going for and it was very hard to see the spread from their finnage. If they had been placed in containers that one female betta if truly HM and had nice dorsal I would have definitely taken her into the mid to high 50s easy.

I'm going to offer 1 MUSTARD GAS to the young lady who (please forgive me for not remembering your name), who asked me about them at the event. Get back to me and we can arrange maybe at the next event I believe Albert was talking about.

OK, I'm ranting and hope I didn't leave anything out. O, does anyone know if Bonnie made it? I was supposed to receive a plant from her and I hope she isnt upset because she might have had to haul it back home? Hopefully she handed it off to someone else who may have shown some interest in it. Ok, Thanks again! Lui
Luis you were there! Didn't think you were coming so I gave it to Albert! Aww, I feel awful If you live in Brooklyn,I'm sure I'll have to trim soon. The ones that took are looking good,the others just melted(ambulia).If you're going to the BAS auction PM me and I'll bring you some stems of whatever I have, all low to medium light. Sorry kiddo.
PS: I was the oldest one in the crew,lol!

Isn't this cute?

Rachel's tiny pyg is on the left, the bigger one is about .5" long, young adult.

And Bonnie, you're a beauty! I have to say that I was admiring your hair all the while we spoke, lol. So many talented artists here <3

OMG! They are tineee! I think she said they were tank raised, were they her's or somone elses? I'd really like a few more myself. I started out with 6 and have 3 left. This summers heat kinda did a number on them.

Also sorry I should have posted the pic on the other thread from VivaDaWolf.

Here's a pic of my pygmies. They are seriously my favorite fish right now.
Going to try and get a good macro shot of them this week with my gf's camera.

Very nice. What's the green mid-ground plant? Dwarf Sag?

Longish leaves? Yep, dwarf sag. Foreground plant is lilaeopsis mauritiana. Just planted a week or two ago. It's a very slow grower and I didn't have much of it.
And please excuse that BBA. I'm currently trying to kill it
