They have a sale for the tour and also some other sale % off, I forget, cause was kinda confusing. Sale during tour, sale after tour, one of them this much another this much. If I order now and pick up sat do I get sale price, IDK. I've decided I'm not going to worry about it and if they have something I like, at the right price and IF I think I can care for it then I'll do some shopping, otherwise it's a learning trip for me. Kinda cool though, cause I was planning to go there this Saturday anyway (my weekend off).

I bring my dog with me when I go up and he likes the attention LOL, but since this is tour, he'll be staying home. He helps me pick stuff out LOL cause I say should I, well I kinda keep saying it til he gets excited and then I'm like Yep, you're right. HEHEHE

Talking Too excited, can't concentrate.

Tomorrow is the tour at Live Aquaria and Diver's Den!!!!! I'm having a really hard time concentrating on anything. Am so antsy that I can't stay with one thing and complete it, am kinda bouncing off the walls.

The schedule allows for almost 3 hours of shopping of Diver's Den and the Aquaculture Coral & Marine Live Facility. WOOHOO, I can shop in the WYSIWYG of Diver's Den instead of looking at pictures. OMG I think that's gonna be way too much time to spend money. I may end up being soooo broke when I get home cause if I buy one thing, I'll buy more. (May have to go beggin for a meal at my daughters here and there LOL)

Pick up my Granddaughter at 10 and heading up north.


I ask but one favor....someone, anyone, is probably gonna have to drag my butt out of there and knock me back into the real world. Dang just thinking about being around so many corals is just frickin mind boggling.

KKKKK I gotta stop rambling. LMAO

Update

Unpacking and acclimating now. Bought 2 peppermint shrimp, one DOA (and that was doubled bagged with air too, left store close to 2 1/2 hours ago. 1 hour 15 drive with stopping 1x on way home.....it should not have died). Bought another Red Spotted Cardinal and he's acclimating. Gotta open the box and get to the corals and 2 Fire Shrimp. They sealed the box as in shipping. Pics to come once I get organized, just got home.

Gonna contact them after I see how everyone else is doing.


Was an awesome time, sooooooooo many corals...........sooooooooooo many BIGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG fish, WoW, am in awe at how big some of those tangs and angels are. 8, 9, 10 inches they had and I know they get bigger, but did I say WOW. Definitely 75 gallon to small for them now that I've seen some of them.

couple pics

Opened box, inside styrofoam box, inside baggies. Can you count how many baggies?? 1 bag should have 2 Fire Shrimp and 1 Bag should have a few snails, the rest are corals.

The peppermint (8.99 ea) and spotted cardinal (12.99 ea) I bought in their retail store.

I can tell you I WAS THE LAST TO LEAVE lol, I closed up the place just like when people close up bars hehehehe. Me and about 8 employees hanging (waiting for me to go lol), chatting, while they were packing and I was paying LOL. Then I'd be oh wait, what's this one. LOL, and off to get me name and price and then oops....box that one too LOL.

While digging through the bags to find the shrimp and snails (which I still haven't found LOL), some of the bags have styrofoam in the too. Can't wait to see what I bought that's in there lol.

No don't ask, I have no clue what I bought anymore, I lost track, uhmmmmmm was kinda caught up in all the corals. (poor credit card)

Me going to a place like that would be like me going to the casino! LOL I need a grand to walk in the door and have a whirlwind day and walk out broke! hehe... then again at least I usually leave a casino with more than i enter with, so I'd probably better stay away from Live aqauria!
