Calgary Aquarium Society Meeting

It was great to meet Webmoose finally, and see Menagerie (who bought just about everything in the auction) again....and of course, to clean-up at the mini-show. :P

If you have a local society, go to the meetings, its a lot of fun!

That is not true!!! I told Webmoose NOT to let me buy any fish! Did he listen? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I came home with a Leporinus Desmotes. I couldn't read the fish description fast enough and I didn't buy any plants
FYI--Trevor was home building a hood for the 80 gal. He knows not to let me get near any fish!!

You may have "cleaned up" all the first place prizes, but I'm figuring it out now!!

A pretty cool fish, if you ask me.

Don't forget that 5 gallon fluorescent canopy...and you would have come back with a lot more if a few people had not outbid you... :P

With only about a 55 point deficit to make up, you had better bring a lot of fish next meeting! :P

I was glad I was able to make it and meet up with guys as well! Menagerie, I thought you were buying the Leporinus Desmotes as a snack not a pet.. Ooops.

You say Badis.. I say Badis!

Moooooose

In the midst of having some grocery money left. So, are you attending the TFBA or the Edmonton auction?
