Any chance they would want to set up a high tech planted tank in the store???? That could make a nice "how-to" meeting topic for a future meeting even if it is a bit of a drive from the GCAS meeting site
Nothing brings in plant business like a nicely planted tank. They could be the first area LFS to actually have a planted tank instead of a tank with plants in it. I could donate some plants to the effort if they are willing! I don't have a lot of skills in Aquascaping but with 10 or so folks helping out, it could be quite the tank.
I know Exotics and Aquatics (I think that is the name) is very close to Jack's house and Jack is 5 minutes or so from the meeting site. I think Jack knows the owner pretty well also. Maybe for some future meetings we could arrange a trip there also...
