oh really? lol. Never knew that. Well I promised Dr. Tran that I would buy some Daphnia from him soon to get rid of the green water lol. That's why I was hoping I could save the green water for you guys till sunday. I don't know if the water will last if I kept it for a week in a bottle.

Here are some options...

If everyone prefers to meet this weekend, it will have to be outside of LES for both safety and convenience due to recent events. Flushing may be a suitable location but the touring will be limited to northern aquarium and food or bubble tea.

If everyone is okay with postponing till next weekend, then the venue can remain and we will shift to 11/11/12. Hopefully the mta will have all commuter services and stations back online

Alternatively, GCAS has their meeting and auction next wednesday so that is also another venue to meet. Please chime in on preference or which you can attend for consensus.

I am okay with options 1 and 3. There may be little to do in Flushing, but it will take some time for the LES LFSs to recover, especially if they get power back as late as Saturday.

I'd prefer that we postpone it to the 11th. A lot of people still don't have power and I'm not sure how people are going to get to Flushing if the 7 train isn't running this weekend. If you guys meetup on Wednesday, I probably won't be able to make it, along with some other people.

I also think postponing would be best... trains aren't all running, and there's no gas for those who drive..

I actually might be able to make it. I'll bring some triop eggs with me to share. idk if you guys will want guppy grass hahaha.

I think we should move it, because LES was hit hard from Sandy.

Yeah I lost power for 3 days + got a 2 ft flood. LES is still w/o power and the trains are iffy. It's best to move it to Nov 11, as suggested by others.

Not only will it give the shops to get back on their feet, but it would give each of us time to revisit our tanks and collect to help others who incurred losses this past week.

I can't get anywhere near Flushing as I'm in southern Brooklyn. A part of me also doubts that LES would be functioning well next week. They're just going to get power this weekend and they'll need the rest of the week to recover, salvage, and repair. The whole place may be barren as they wait to restock.

Perhaps even pushing it even further, such as to the 18th, would be better? Or is that way too late?

*Or I'll just wait till the next meet :P

Honestly, LES is a long way from bouncing back to its former glory.

I encourage everyone to voice their thoughts and concerns as many of us rely on public transportation for these meets. Someone can propose a location in Brooklyn for consideration otherwise, we can meet at Bryant Park. If the weather is beyond cold, there's the public library. Hopefully by then, the 7 train will be running along with other lines extending into brooklyn.

On a separate topic. i have a large amount of floaters namely salvinia and frogbit. I dont have enough containers to store before the meet so if there are no takers, its going in the bin.
