Florida Aquarium Fish Expo (June 2013)
 
I'm proud to announce the Florida Aquarium Fish Expo for June of 2013 in Fort Myers, Florida.

The fish show will include categories for just about every species except goldfish and koi, with cash prizes for outstanding fish. World class speakers will talk about everything from water quality to collecting wild fish. There are trips scheduled for Snookin21's fish house and collecting Florida natives. Two seperate auctions will feature dry goods and equipment and a huge live fish auction on Sunday.

We encourage everyone to register to participate and enjoy the Show.

A full list of fish classes, sponsors and vendors will be posted on the fish show website in January.

Count me In (i hope)
 
:bounce::bounce:I saw this on Amazonas and now here :)

So I had to "sell" my wife on this, and of course she gave me a supportive "we'll see" I told her Jack Watley would be there ( she's aware of his quality Discus) and I added: "honey we can stay on estero beach and attend the expo over the weekend" ;) .

Well we got a "bun in the oven" and this will be our 1st child but as you may know just kid prepping the home is expen$ive.


Either Way it looks very promising and I hope to make it and see other FL TpT members there.

Thanks For the Post Joefish72 :bounce::bounce:

I had a very similar reaction from my wife. Our second is on the way and should be here in mid April or May so we won't be traveling as a family and "we'll see" means "you're not leaving me by myself with a 2 year old and a 2 month old for some FISH!"

"We'll see" ... "Yes dear"

Congrats on kid#2

Lol about the "we'll see"

We're expecting to hatch err... I mean birth by mid August (we found out this thursday)

So if I can finesse her on staying on estero beach then parhaps I can FINagle going to the expo on the weekend.

I do have a week on vacation in the summer that I will try to move for this expo/esto beach getaway ;)

Hey check back if you happened to find a way of going. It would be great to meet with other TPT members there :)

Well, congrats to you both on your pregnant females, having two of my own fry I know how cautious you have to be when the females are carrying. We had two kids only 13 months apart and leaving the wife unattended with 2 little ones required strategic planning.

One thing to offer would be a spa package at Pink Shell Resort and Spa (Fort Myers Beach), I would offer that now, once she is swollen the offer has a 99% chance to make her cry. You won't know if it's a good cry cause she is so happy, or a bad one because she will be swollen and won't want other females to see her body and it will all depend on whether the good hormones or the evil ones are in control for that particular minute.
