Default July/August Meeting/Collecting Trip

Do we want to look into planning the "Collecting Trip" at the end of July or would it be better to wait until the end of August? Dave has plenty of places near his house and he recommended waiting until the creeks/rivers in the area have had a chance to lower from all of the recent rains we have had.

If we hold off until August, I say we hold the July meeting at a restaurant near the GCAS Meeting site, maybe B-dubs? I'm open to suggestions as far as the restaurant is concerned. Those who want to go to the GCAS meeting afterwards will already be close and those who don't want to attend can go on about their business

So, what say you?

Either one sounds good. Maybe you can set up another poll.

Here are my thoughts for July and August...

I say we hold the July meeting on Sunday, July 27th, at 5-5:30ish at a B-dubs close to the GCAS meeting site. Hopefully Rob can chime in with the general location or address. Those that want to attend the GCAS meeting afterwards can.

Holding the plant collecting trip in August may work better given all the rain we have had up this way lately, plus it gives us a little more time to plan. I'd like to head out to Dave's and see what places he has in mind in the next weekend or two

Lemme know what you think...

I'd be happy for Sunday. And BWW sounds good too. Ditto on August collecting, wouldn't want any collectors to wash out. I'm def interested in looking for some local Echinodorus.
I wanted to ask if anybody has a favorite decon method for wild plants. Or do you drop 'em in and let the CO2 and loaches sort 'em out?

Some beasties maybe, but my luck isn't so good. I'll clean stuff.

So I guess it'll be next month. I imagine everyone has gotten busy with summer stuff. Well I'll have to get my BWW fix locally

Matt, did the old girls survive dropping their eggs? How did that go?

Cheers,
M

Yep, the girls did just fine and are still alive and kicking, thank you for bringing them by. I don't think the fry survived but I will get a batch to survive sooner or later I put your girls in a 10g tank with a pair of Albino Ancistrus I got from Rob so if you want them back they are yours The Ancistrus have spawned so if you want a few 1/2" long Albino Ancistrus as "rent" for your female Amanos you are welcome to them.

As far as the collecting trip is concerned, I won't be around much for the next two weeks. We are leaving for Florida on Wednesday and I won't be back until the 11th. I should have internet access but probably won't have enough free time to do much if planning for the collecting trip. Hopefully Dave has come up with some idea for us.

Are you going collecting in FL ? Heh, as it happens, I'll be in FL too, but for a much shorter time. Not bringing anything back with me though.
