Hope you guys found your way okay. I dont have internet to check this thread midway.

Thanks for the fun! I need to shovel food in my mouth and go finish my comic-con shirt before the night ends now.

It was good to see everyone tonight. :O

Recap: Walked the brooklyn aquarium, saw some huge walrus swim backwards, oogled at jellyfish, Ate some good pizza, watched edwin,matt,flo share a pizza pie sized calzone (shouldvd taken a photo!!!!), got some new foods to try, made my donation to Jellie's kindergarten project, Shared quite a few laughs with Matt over the first auctioneer, Bonnie almost sold me on getting a python, had a few auction laughs with Jeff, met sunyang and his body guard, bought two max III prefilters, bid on Bonnie's bristlenose pleco and plants, Met sippingtankwater and xev12... and refrained from buying anything i didnt need.

It was a good night. Thanks for the fun and look forward to the next meet!

Hi guys. Sorry I didn't say hi to new folks coming into the auction- didn't know anyone else who showed up It was fun though!!

Sadly part of the aquarium building was closed- so we didn't get to see ALL the cool fish in that last part. It was double the size. But..its not like we had time anyway right? Haha

I bought a plant book, some decapped brine shrimp (the verdict...my 20L loves it, the 72g..not so much..just too small for them to be excited...even the neons were like..what? And now its everywhere on the bottom LOL, hope the cories enjoy), and a marmokreb cray who is berried. Seems like the fish were kinda mediocre in terms of interestingness, and TPTers didn't get many auctioned stuff.

And monster, perhaps! I'll be... well I'm not cosplaying, so I cant say I'll stand out. I'll be lunchng near the IGN theatre at 4 I think.

Ha, you should have bought that python! Best thing they ever came up with, no more fish water down your throat!
I really had fun it was a nice night for sure

yes, having non-buyers regret now

after comparing with amazon, The python rep was selling at retail price at the show, so i didn't miss out on any savings there.

but i did enjoy meeting Matt's new bullfrog. I thought that was the coolest item on auction!

I have a Lee Aquarium Products 50 foot water changer and some spare parts that I got for $15 on clearance. It's too bulky for me to deal with as the biggest tank I have is 29 g. I tried it once and I would have to cut it down.

If you would like for a trade of some kind let me know!

I was there last night, didn't realize so many TPT members would also be. I won 4 of the raffles with my cousin but they ended up being 75% used, expired and mostly trash in those raffle bags.

Glad everyone had fun!

Meowkitty nice pics of the day I meant to bring my camera and of course left it on my kitchen table
Your cory was a really nice looking one too. I had something similar and boy it got to be almost 3".
Bought the soft krill which my fish absolutely love. If anyone wants a sample I have nice little cups with lids from Jellie who is a little cutie and very sweet, thank you Jellie! I also have the golden pearls if anyone wants a sample, from Brooklyn anyways won't be able to make the next swap meet.
