Brooklyn Aquarium Society 10/12

I'm going to this. I don't actually need anything, but at the last Big Auction they had repashy and Yourfishstuff vendors and I stocked up on food. Cheap. Besides, I'll be downtown that evening anyway, so I might as well.

Of course if you want to take bets that I come home with something that swims or scuttles, I can't blame you.

I'm no acitydweller, but I figured I'd see if anyone was interested and then, if so, if they want to swap anything. I have work earlier that day, so I probably won't be bringing livestock, but I can do plants.I'm taking off that day, so let me know if you want;

Baby albino bristlenose plecos,
H. formosa fry (I don't have a jillion anymore, but I can spare a few)
Assassin snails
Other snails, the kind that breed out of control if you let them
Watersprite
Java moss
Java fernlets
Various floaters
I have other plants but I either forgot or never knew what they were called, one of these days I should have one of you plant experts over to ID them for me.


I forgot to mention that these auctions usually have awesome deals on tanks. Savvy buyers are used to paying a dollar a gallon on craigslist or Petco, but I've seen tanks with wooden stands and hoods go for less than that at these auctions.

For the sake of full disclosure, it is a trek to get there. There is free parking though, for those of you who drive.

I'm going to try and make this one, I've been to a few and they do have jewels here and there. Overall I have always had a good experience.

It's about a 2 hour give or take commute for me though. And it's sort of late and that train is ... a little iffy.

I'll have to see. I did go out to Coney Island for their summer movies on the beach once and it wasn't TERRIBLE. A lot of weird dudes though. -_-

If I come, I probably won't have much stuff though. Need to grow in stuff, anything (going very slowly) for the November meet.

Well, not that I'm especially scary, but I'll escort you on the train through Brooklyn if you like. I'll be taking the Q from 14th street in, and either the same or the F back.

I've considered bringing a flask to aquarium meetings but two things always hold me up.

1 - I don't want to go on a drunken shopping spree.

2 - I don't want to go down in any aquarium club annals as the only guy to ever be ejected for drunken hooliganism.

yes figuratively speaking lol. Once I went and it took me about 2 hours to get home because the trains were messed up, and I LIVE in Brooklyn.

well at least you won't be the guy snoring in the front row...

I love the auctions they're alot of fun and usually end late, but that's when you can get some great deals. Someone is bringing me 2 whiptail cats, can't wait. I have what I think is one famale red hump eartheater, the other 4 weren't fast enough and got caught for an auction in the spring, and 3 ABN's or if anyone wants to trade for plants I'll trade an ABN or the other one.

There is someone who breeds bettas and I believe he also breeds guppies, they were the most beautiful green snakeskin guppies I've ever seen. Almost threw a bid in but I don't do livebearers...but they were gorgeous!
