Don't forget the meeting is this Wednesday, October 5th. So far we have free plants, free red cherry shrimp, free rice fish, free guppies and as always, FREE PLANTS!

I even saw a post of some free flying fox fish. What an awesome group!

PM me if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing everyone there.

I know that we won't ... no room and not a species I tend to keep in general.

I can't wait for the meeting ... I wound up buying a cichlid by mistake (wasn't paying attention to the first part of the description) at the SAS auction this weekend and I'm just not that into cichlids ... but the other half was overjoyed! He's been wanting cichlids since forever and I just wasn't interested in them for my tanks (I went through my cichlid phase decades ago only cichlids I tend to be interested in these days are angels and discus) and he just never seemed to want to do the tank himself lol. Well he claimed that fish right then and there at the auction and said that's MY fish once he realized I didn't listen and bought it by mistake and didn't actually want it lol!

And since I had no place for this species of fish ready and I just wasn't about to just slap him into my 2g nano with the guppies, we wound up getting him his first tank (since he was a kid) and now he can start learning about how to keep his fish happy and alive. LOL.

He's been really excited about his little guy, starting to do research on the species, see what sort of a tank he will have to end up with (the tank we got was just a temp 1.5 gallon I grabbed at Walmart on our way home) as the tank he's in now is temporary. Kinda neat - it wound up being an endangered species, so the fact that breeding them would be a conservation type of thing really piqued his interest even more, which I thought was pretty cool!

He's very interested in Co2 I think, and was getting a little interested a bit more when I told him that there was a speaker about co2 at this meeting which was why I was excited as I really know nothing about co2 yet!

So definitely might have one new convert in tow that will be fairly new at everything, and two newbies when it comes to CO2! I've been telling him to sign up on this forum and then on the group forum too, so hopefully he will soon!

I know we pride ourselves on growing fancy rare plants, but if anyone has some "boring" floating plants like frogsbit, salvinia, etc, I could really use some!

Can anyone stop by these things, or do you have to be a registered member and what not? I was thinking about checking this out with a buddy of mine. We are both from UC Davis

Anyone can stop by, you do not need to be a member. We'd love for the two of you to join us. Please pm me if you have any questions or post here.
