I spoke to Kevin when he was making his rounds at the LFS and he mentioned something about "how to setup a nano tank" as being the topic but i havent seen it posted on their website.

Yes, November 6th. The itinerary is being shared so people can join us at any shop along the way. Those who cant make the day are welcome to take this list and visit these great places at their own pace.

It's a shame you're going to South Shore Tropicals at 12:30, school gets out at 2:30! I guess there's always next time

Hi Jake,
I picked up amano shrimp, amandae tetras, scissor tail rasboras, cherry shrimp, zebra otos, oil catfish, several pieces of driftwood, two types of stem plants, pygmy cories, windelov fern to name off the top of my head. there were quite a few types of plecos, dwarf cichlids, tetras which really were eye catching. The diamond neon tetras were something worth considering and at $.99... unheard of at that price. The purple rasboras were also very pretty.
