Default PAPAS show tank

Hi all. Here is our status on the show tank for the GPASI show this Friday.

40 Breeder show tank:

Equipment:
40 Breeder tank
40 Br. stand
40 Br. glass canopy
2 or 3 T-5 fixtures
Fluval 304 filter
200 watt heater
Thermometer
5lb CO2 tank
Regulator
Acrylic divider
Sand
Eco-complete
hardscape

Plants:

2- big clumps narrow leaf java fern
10- stems Ludwigia repens ‘Rubin’
8- stems Ludwigia repens ‘Green’
4- small Nymphoides sp. ‘Taiwan’
5- Blyxa japonica

Animals:

6- Siamese Algae Eaters
15- Olive nerites
10- Algae Eating shrimp
20- Rasbora hengeli

Miscellaneous:

2- Timers
2- Extension cords
2- 6 outlet power strips
3- 3 outlet adapters
1- Dechlorinator
1- Seachem alkaline buffer
Nutrients


Things we still need:

Tank for emerged setup
Stand for emerged setup
Glass canopy for emerged setup
Lights for emerged setup
1- KH kit
4- 5 Gal. buckets
1- Diatom filter (I ordered one at work. It should be in by Wednesday)


Am I missing anything? As far as the emerged setup goes all that is needed is the tank hood and stand. I have everything else.

The doors open at 10:00 am for setup. I personally would like to be there as soon as they open so that we can overcome any problems that we may come across throughout the day. If anybody can make it for the setup or can contribute anything please let me know on this thread. We can definitely Use more plants. Anything that can be contributed would be appreciated. Also, if anybody has a truck or SUV, it would be a big help in delivery.

Thanks,

Tim

I forgot to add that we need a poster or something big with our name and sponsor (which would be All Oddball Aquatics) on it.

Any suggestions on how we should do this?

Thanks,
Tim

I have some Polygonum and hairgrass we could use.

I can be there Sunday and probably about 6:30 or so on Friday. So basically, I can help finish the setup, take it down, and man the booth.

You could try Kinkos; my company uses them for printing signs.

I expect to be there by 6PM Friday. I can be there Sat & Sunday to man the booth and help with take down.

Thanks for the replies everybody. I will be able to borrow my dad's truck on Friday. Katie and I are working on the poster. I would like to have a logo to put on it if possible. If it is going to be expensive to print then I will use money from the PAPAS treasury to fund it. Otherwise I will pay for it.

Bob, any idea on a time that you will get there. So far it seems like only you and me for the initial setup.

Also, I can probably just use my 20 gallon tank, glass canopy, and lights for the emerged setup unless somebody can get me something else before Friday.

As I said I would like to get there as early as possible. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Tim

I think the club can afford to spring for it .


I wish I could take the day off to be there early Friday, but the way things are at work I am lucky to be able to get Saturday & Sunday off.

Bob & Tim did a great job setting up the PAPAS display tank.
Everyone should come to the GPASI show and check it out.
