Al - THANKS so much. For some reason I didn't think about the weather and also inconvenience of holding the shrimp for me until Monday. Sorry about the trouble.

I can come by your office on Monday as I have work that day as well (back at Grand Central area again).

Had lots of fun, even though I fail at getting rid of stuff and not taking more home!

Thank you everyone who gave me plants. I am going to plant Dart's tank tomorrow if it kills me! I think she won't be able to eat these

Hey Gordon hooked me up with a secret plant, I'm pretty sure it's a Anubias... Anyone know which type?

I picked up some plants from Gordon also.....VERY nice! But then again, everything I received yesterday was beautiful. Can't wait to get everything planted. Looks like I'll be doing a little rescaping today.

George, I won't be in the city on Sunday but you are welcome to come to little neck to pickup. 27 min ride on the l.I.r.r. Otherwise, I can bring to times square on Monday.

Had a great time at the meet yesterday and finding out about the fish stores in CT. Pacific has some awesome tanks and I got some scape ideas from looking at them. I also really like those tiny blue-streak rasboras they had (don't remember their exact name). I think I definitely want a school of those in my 5.5g Mini-M I'm setting up right now.

Great meeting you all, and thanks for the plants! Thanks citydweller for making it happen!

Aznrice247 - let me know how your friend's tank turns out with the eco and flourite and rocks and twigs. Should look good. Also appreciate your knowledge on shrimps.
