I would think I would need to bring a cooler to keep things warm and safe for a drive just in case. Thanks!

BTW, I have looked through the GCCA website and it is amazing that there is such a dedicated group of people with this hobby. Around me there is only saltwater clubs, and I'm all freshwater .
It's worth it. A lot of stuff you won't see at your LFS, plus almost all the fish (if not all) are from legit breeders so you are getting good quality. Decent plant selection usually too. A lot of low-tech plants, but you run across the others once and a while too.

Today they had 2x 50G Metaframe tanks and also a 10G Metaframe. I wanted to take the 10G, but I had to walk away. Don't know where I would put it , plus I doubt the wife would be too happy either
