Let's be nice to each other and get back on topic...

As it stands it looks like LES wins. For those who are Flushing inclined, i am happy to arrange meeting on a separate day. We were last at Fishtown USA/Oasis Cafe which was a lot of fun but this can be switched up to any other fish shop/cafe just as easily.


As for LES:
- Let's meet at Pacific at 2pm... unless others have suggestions on location/time?

Why there? It gives the punctual folks something to do while the latecomers stroll in tardy.

- We can linger for 25-30 minutes then decide together which bar or coffee shop to migrate to chat/barter/etc...

- Afterwards, we head west from Pacific towards to 123 Aquarium/WIN/Aquastar which will likely take another hour factoring walking time and fish gazing.

We can budget 2-3 hours for this meet up. Anyone can leave early or come late (dont count on people holding livestock or freebies for you).

I should be good between 2-3, then off to church I go.

I can only really offer up some stems (r.rotun, ludwiga sp red, and a little bit of moss) at this point. Anyone have some java rock they can part with?

Brongher - I'll take some of those snails from you.

Roger that.

I'll post a definite list closer to the date, but just to gauge interest in what I know I'll have, is anyone else coming interested in assassin snails or albino bristlenose babies or Heterandria formosa fry. These are freebies unless you want a bunch.

After reading this post few times, I realize that it is on a Sunday. Can't go on a Sunday.

Are those Endlers still available?

Are you interested in keeping any dwarf shrimp?

Yes and yes but I'm not sure where I'd put them, let me get back to you.

Gosh, I still remember back when a new aquarium meetup seems to start up every other month.

We're already connected, we have a forum and PMs. What would a meetup group lend us that we can't already do?

+1. Why over complicate things when we already have a thread going?

I'm really going to try and make this. Sounds like fun. I'll probably have rotala rotundafolia, maybe Ludwigia red some jungle Val. Maybe some dwarf sag. I'm due for a trim really soon.
