Long Island AA BBQ

This weekend, BrianNY and his wife played host to Allivymar, Menagerie, Lmw80, Madasafish, and myself.

He showed us their ancistrus pleco breeding tank, 8-or-so discus tanks in the basement, and a phenomenal planted tank in the den populaated by discus, clownloaches, apistos, and a huge school of black neon tetras. The discus were the healthiest and most colorful I have ever seen.

We feasted on BBQ'd discus-ka-bob (j/k :P ) and when we were leaving, we all got goodie bags containing two baby albino ancistrus plecs!

Thanks to Brian and his wife for a wonderful time.

Despite my computer/photoshop's uncooperative nature today, I'm attaching some pics.

We had a ton of fun in the pool with the inflatable dolphin and "swimming" plastic fish. Actually, I think the really odd dolphin pics where Madasafish and I tamed the wild beast (not at the same time ), were taken by Brian. There were a lot of nay-sayers, but one can float on the dolphin, if you try hard enough!!!

Aaah, finally!
This $#%@& computer has been driving me nuts all day with anything requiring graphics.
I think I'm going to throw it into a tank of 88oF water with a pich of salt...why not, that remedy seems to take care of most of my problems.

We have that same dolphin, and nobody, I mean not the kids or anyone, can keep it upright!

Glad to get some faces to go with the names -

Brian, your fish are gorgeous - you rock!
