Default AGA convention

So how was it? Did Cavan get drunk and try to knock out Tom Barr?
Any new plants?

It was alot of fun! I thought all of the speakers were pretty good. We went to a nice aquarium store called Aqua Forest. They had alot of ADA stuff for sale and had 5 ADA show tanks setup. They also had a huge plant selection with lots of rare species. Cavan and I picked up some cool stuff. Although they had some rare stuff, I would have to say "the condition of the plants is low." The owner, George Lo, was stunned when Cavan told him what he was growing and that he did not use Aqua Soil. There were alot of ADA product fans at the convention. I'm not sure if that's good or bad.


Later,

Tim

I thought it went pretty well. No, I didn't get into it with Tom.

The speakers were interesting and we had a good time on our Sunday excursion with Jeff and Ricky. The condition of the plants could have been better, but there was a bunch of cool stuff. Kinda pricey though.
