Any day works for me. Just figure out when is the best time for you guys. Maybe I'll post a new thread for an Orlando swap meet. Thoughts?

I'd be more than willing to host, though you guys can't be too harsh on my tank and set up lol.

BTW, I'm thinking about becoming a member of ORCA (Orlando Reef Caretakers Association) just so that I can borrow their PAR meter. Does anybody else need a PAR meter?

I'm in Orlando for the next few days; not very sunny, lots of rain : (
This calls for LFS outings, any suggestions for shops that have a nice selection of freshwater fish/inverts?

No joy on inverts out here. It's all about locals here. I sell my RCS locally to board members since no one in Orlando carries them. The shop out by University of Central FL had/has them but they were twice the price. Plants out here are meh as well.

Fishy Business has freshwater fish but the selection is not quite as diverse as their saltwater choices,

Yeah I agree, orlando has tons of fish stores but most of them are for saltwater tanks. A new one just opened up right down the street from oceans direct on aloma but they only have salty stuff. Even oceans direct got rid of their freshwater section.(good thing because their tanks were overcrowded)

If you're here on Sunday there is talk of people meeting up to trade some stuff at 1. I'll double check if that is still going on.

A LFS employ told me freshwater shrimp are just too much of a hassle. They are available to order if I want them, but they are just too small and get lost in their tanks. This lead me to believe RCS cost the store alot more then ghost shrimp, as they have a small tank loaded with them... the size could still be the main issue also.

I'd rather get my shrimp from TPT folks anyways

But throwing 100 ghost shrimp though into a tank, they surely won't get lost.. LOL

Btw I went to Marinewarehouse in Tampa yesterday, by far the best selection of plants I have seen. Quite the drive but worth it. They we out of A.Nana's but i got my fill of java moss indeed.

Hey all, just got back from vacation so I am trying to catch up on things. I would be willing to host a meet up at my house, I would gladly provide a consistent place for us to meet. I live right by seaworld and aquatica. We have plenty of room to hang out. Demonr6 has come by here a number of times he can tell you how much room we have. I can give my contact info to anybody that is going to head up the meetup stuff or club.

RCS Tank is exploding. Babies galore WOOT WOOT!!!

BTW - I want to buy more assassin snails.
