A couple of things:
(1) Can I assume that nothing has changed as far as the plan for Saturday? Meeting at 2pm at Asukawashere's place? (I am still having a hard time associating real names to handles)

(2) Regarding ordering fish online. I have good experience ordering from Wetspotcx (aquabid handle - they are actually a fish store in Oregon if I remember correctly). They have very nice selection of nano fishes. Let me forward their stocklist to Mike and ask him to distribute to the rest of you.

Yep, plans are still the same! We'll all be wandering vaguely into my basement at around 2 (Also, my name is Amanda, but you can call me Asuka if you want - it's an old nickname from high school, as well as how I sign my artwork. It's pronounced a bit like "Oscar" but without the r...)

I wouldn't mind taking a look at that stocklist you have - can you print a copy and bring it to the meeting?

Well, I already purchased the small pack (100ml's) of Seachem Fundamentals and Enhancement that's why I was thinking of getting some more by liters... Would like to be purist on my 37gal and try all Seachem line and experiment for 3-5 mos. (or until I ran out)... Just want to see how my plants, especially the hard to keep ones, will do spoiling them with Seachem ferts

So anyone would like to jump in on ordering to dtpetsupplies? I might order there this weekend...

By the way John are you coming this saturday? I'm trying to get a head count for our underwater sting operation.
As of today, it's 70%-30%... 70% I'll come on Saturday, just need to confirm with the in-laws if they really want to watch the kid while the wife and I are out having a good time LOL... Will update you on that by tomorrow afternoon...

Soooo, what's the current head count?

Hey Riverboa, the spreadsheet I attached on post #27 came from Grey... He's also from Wetspotcx...

I'm not sure what the head count is honestly since most people haven't replied to let me know if they are coming or not. But so far, Collene, Ken, John, Amanda and me are coming. There will probably be a few more stragglers here and there

Riverboa are you coming?

And here's my random question for the day: Big Al's sells 2L bottles of Excel for $26.99. It's 4L bottles, however, are $56.99. So why would anyone want to buy the 4L when you could just buy two 2L bottles for $53.98?
I know! I noticed this too and it made no sense to me either. But Big Als occasionally puts excel on sale and the 4 L goes down to the 40$ range.

By the way Wetspotcx sent me an email with their supply list. I can email it around to everyone if people don't already have a copy from Wetspotcx?

Soooo.... I just took a pre-scouting trip to one of my area collecting places. Found some very interesting things....

1. Elatine - I found a bunch of Elatine. Not sure how I missed it before, lol, but it's there.

2. A water snake. Not poisonous, very people-shy, but maybe we'll get to take a peek at him. I <3 snakes

3. Some cute little stem plant with reddish, round leaves that I can't ID. We can all squint at it on Saturday and then pick a stem to mail to Cavan when we can't figure it out. :P

4. Some funky possibly-aquatic rosette plant that I like. I have no idea what it is, but it's cool.

5. A bunch of little Sagittaria plantlets that have emersed leaves that made them look oddly like Crypts until I found one with a typical arrowhead leaf.

6. Riccia fluitans. Just a tiny little bit of it, and I have plenty so I didn't grab it, but I didn't even realize Riccia grew around here. o_O' Go figure.

7. Some more random Polygonum stuffs.

8. A turtle. Who then promptly slid off his rock and swam away from me, but he was a cool little turtle



Anyway. Yeah. John, LMK if you place that order w/ DT - I might get some excel.

Lets discuss orders at the meeting, I think people will want to do a group order for sure.

I second that idea! Bring printouts of stocklists if you have them, everyone!

By the way.... I got the right drill bits today to make the correct hole for the propane burner. I fired up the burner and it resembles a jet taking off! Its spectacularly powerful. The flame is blue and hot hot hottt!!!

I'll see if I can get some pics as soon as it gets dark. Just a few days until I fire it up for the first time!

Just try not to burn down your house in the process Would be a shame to lose all those gorgeous planted tanks... :P

Speaking of which, has anyone ever considered getting those little "pet inside" stickers that warn firefighters to try and save your animals, and marking it for "fish" - anyone?
