That's a great idea, John. I think each one of us could probably take a picture of our display tanks and put them there.

Now you come up with the hard questions... I'm trying to think of a creative name and all I can think of are silly names like "rasbora's edge" or something equally ridiculous. Give me some time to think a bit.

Yes, three 6' tables. The larger tank photos are a great idea, though maybe they'd best be displayed in a binder or photo book of some kind. Anyone interested, please email me the highest-resolution photos you can get... screen size won't work for printouts!

When in doubt, you could always just call it something like "Emersed Bowl" or "My Entry"

Binder or photo book is a good alternative though the only disadvantage I could see is only one/two person at a time could look/browse at it (unless we bring at least 2 identical copies?) whereas having them on pic frames on the table will let them see the tank pics right away at our booth without causing much traffic OR, we could use an illustration board too to stick/paste the pics like a presentation...

Hmm I prefer the idea of individual pictures, or maybe if its possible, a projector with a looped power point presentation. If we could take up one wall of the place we should get a lot of people coming to see our tanks. I can also send some fish pictures that aren't necessarily with plants to draw in some of the fishier folk.

Then we can have the high-res pictures of the tanks on the table for them to look over.

We don't have access to a projector - if someone wants to volunteer a laptop, we could run a presentation on that, but leaving a laptop out on a table for 3 days potentially unattended sounded like a bad idea to me...

I have no problem making 2 binders, or even a larger portfolio-type display (I can print photos up to 11x17" if the resolution is good enough). My concern with the frames is a.) having to buy a gazillion of them, and b.) there being more little pieces to knock over and whatnot.

Of course it's all moot if y'all don't send me your photos! I need them as far in advance as you can swing it - I can't format them all the night before, after all!

Also, I'm trying to arrange to transport a 55g tank to house the emersed, high-humidity display... anybody willing to help bring it over/tear it down? A thank hat big won't fit in my car LOL.

Instead of frames, we could just laminate individual pictures.

I'll send you link to my online pictures and you can pick and choose which one you deem is good enough to share... I also have more recent pics on my phone but it would take time to sort through.

I'll email the pictures to you this weekend...

As for the pic frames, I have six 11"x14", without stand, that I could lend but that's not enough if we have more tank pics to display

Maybe we could pick 6 really exceptionally nice ones to display and put the rest in the binder? That way passers by can be lured in by pretty colors and the ones that are really interested have something to stay for.

Are you available to meet up this coming Saturday? My daughter and I will go to Trumbull Mall (Westfields) in the am, I can bring the pic frames with me... If not, I can probably drop it off to your place on Tuesday... Speaking of pics, you can also include macro pics of inflorescence from your emersed plants to the binder/portfolio
