Well, I know you and I trust you. That would be an awesome prize. I was thinking of putting up one of the stock 2.5 or 5 gallon glass tanks from Petsmart, but peeps seem to prefer rimless tanks these days. I've collected, like, all of the ghetto reject aquarium schtuff, I don't think anybody wants what I have even for free.

Anybody else have thoughts?

I actually wouldn't mind getting those tanks from you.

The question would be, how much the raffle tickets go and would the tickets be per item or a general draw for all items. Given the value of the items. Maybe tickets should go for $8-10 each since we may only have like 10 people attending? The proceeds are going to the aquarium so people are welcome to buy as many tickets as they wish to donate.

I encourage everyone look for something to contribute on behalf of the aquarium. It would certainly make the raffle that much more exciting.

OR... Should we turn this into an auction for all items? Hmmm

In which case people would certainly bid on items of interest while possibly raising more money?

Or a combination thereof?

I'd like to do a multiple item thing, I think it lets more people contribute. Auction also has the potential to bring in more for items that are worth more. If we have a space to meet and lay stuff out, we can do a silent auction where people write in their bids.

Um, Eve, I don't actually have said tanks? They're just what I can get easily near me and can carry on the train. I think someone had a few 2.5s for trade earlier in this thread, hit them up first and depending on interest I'll see what I can get.

A majority of us know oneanother so I'm sure we can set aside tickets for you and do a drawing whether you are present or not. Just need you to paypal the funds to someone.

The auction however would require a sponsor or representative on the phone with you to make bids. Its more of a realtime thing. If someone can help to collect a list of items either for raffle, or auction, we can circulate beforehand and can plan accordingly.

Remember all funds are going to the brooklyn aquarium. We would also need someone to volunteer and make the donation on behalf of our group.

Which leads to this question. Are we forming a group or society or still going by "the planted tank ny subforum". Its not so much an ego thing but more an identity since our activites and this hobby has brought so many of us together and made this so much more than it ever was 6 months ago. So to this point, I'm curious to see how everyone feels.

maybe we could start calling ourselves "NYAPS" like it was previously suggested.


Whether or not we do a raffle or an auction depends on the number of people we can expect and the (total/individual) value of the items offered. We should try to do a poll/headcount, though I don't know if one can be added to this thread.

Alright so I got a water bottle's worth of green water for everyone that I will be taking out today. Going to keep it open under light. Hopefully it'll stay well under light and 65 degrees.

Would need a website just to serve as an online bill board at first.

Does anybody have some Azoo plant grower bed to spare? I originally went with some fluval shrimp stratum, but I think I would rather give the Azoo substrate a shot.

Or if anybody knows where I could get it locally, that would help as well. Thanks!
