I'm planning to go on Saturday since I'm only 10 minutes away.

I'm not, not sure how great it will be and tickets are kind of expensive

It's about 1 hour, 15 minutes to get there for me since it takes so long to get down 12. Ugh. I'd like to go just for something to do and I'd just do the $10 pass for the floor and exhibits, etc. I don't need to sit in on seminars. So, we'll see. Battling an illness right now, so not sure if I'll make it. Interesting to see from those who attend how it was. I'll let you know how it was if I make it there.

Don't get me wrong I like Africans but table after table of over priced peacocks gets a little annoying. There was quite a bit of apistogramma cacatuoides there and some others but overall weak new worlds including dwarfs. I didn't see a single mikrogeophagus ramirezi there

I'm going to Aquatic Experience, too. But mostly because my 5yo read the page faster than I did and begged to enter the kid's tank contest. Which is why I'm going to the GCCA swap - to pick up more plants to help his tank design. Things snowball, don't they?

Dang kids lol, but yes the snowball effect is a common occurrence for me

Sorry I missed you. My son found yet more guppies and after I went broke on plants we escaped early. The crowd gets a little much for the little guy.
