Gonna leave in a few minutes to go to the coral show they are having at the convention center.

I bet I come back with something, also gonna stop by a new coral store on the way home that is having a huge tank upgrade sale on all their corals. They even have live rock for 2.99 a lb which is a beyond excellent price for LR in this area.

Wish me luck guys, supposed to be ALOT of giveaways and theres a raffle too. They are raffling off MH, ro systems, ato's and so many other cool things. I hope I win something LOL

Will update later as to what I find.

yep, I have the entire 90g ready to go with sand and rock and everything BUT a stand LOL.

Just got back from the show and I'm a bit diappointed. While there was a decent selection of corals most of them were SPS and chalices. :-( I ended up with two zooa frags, blue ones FINALLY and another one that I forgot. hehe Will post some pictures when they are in the tank and open.

All in all not a bad day out. I did stop at a new coral shop on the way back and they were completely and totally filthy and dirty. They had dead fish floating, a blue tang that was almost starved to death and the corals were horrible. Almost wish I had gotten more frags at the convention. BUT I have a local reef club meeting next saturday at a beautiful well kept store so I hope to pick up some more gems then.

Thanks guys!

Congrats on your new corals. It is a shame that the new store didn't work out, it is always fun discovering new stores. I can't wait to see the new pictures!

You go and trade your frags for other peoples or you just buy them usually for cheap.
