I stopped in today to look around the place - well stocked and very nice. Really nothing going on as far as plants yet, but he does have all the accessories. The only thing that bothered me is that he stocks painted glassfish.

I talked to Brian while I was there and mentioned the interest here in scaping a tank in his shop. He indicated that he was aware of the idea and pointed to a nice bowfront tank saying "I've already got the tank right here".

So, he knows we're coming, he has the tank, even has a couple of empty CO2 rigs...

So? Anybody else think that it's time to quit beating around the bush and get something put together here?

I can't do it on the 8th (Wife's birthday). But may be able to convince her of the 9th. Otherwise, tax weekend would work for me...

This sounds like a really good opportunity and a nicely centralized location for a first meeting. I think a weekend day would be best. I'm ready. Tax weekend would be fine by me...wife's a CPA so I'm definitely free that weekend.

How does Apriil 16 work for everybody? Brian's fine with it, and will make sure he has all the equipment we need for a demo tank.

easter sunday? I could probably make it in the afternoon, after church.

I swung by the shop last night to pickup my new co2 tank and regulator. it's not very pretty, but it'll work. Good news is that it came with a needle valve!

It's a VERY nice shop. They have a great selection of fish, but not yet plants. Their plant tanks have brown algae right now, I'm sure it will pass. But the fish look healthy, and like I said, they have a great selection. They do cary some ADA products too, like substrate. It took me 45 minutes to get there from work (God bless the 5 freeway on Friday at 5) but it was well worth the drive.

My break from rescaping is over. I'll be making a thread about that in the aquascaping section shortly. [/plug]

oh, I forgot. I have three large pieces of manzanita and some extra slate I will donate to the tank.

Or anyone who wants it can have it, if the ocean blue display doesn't need it.
