I'm alive I swear! Sorry, I was all sick and useless last weekend. If it's not too late, dropping them off tonight would be fine... I may or may not be home yet (I usually get in at 6-ish), but someone should be around.

I'm definitely planning to include some inflorescence photos in the lineup. Michael and Tonny have sent me some great pics as well. :)

That's ok, I didn't bring the frames with me at work today so I'll just drop them off to you tomorrow... Speaking of pics, I'm still going to send you mine... I'll try to email them to you tonight...

Thanks for the frames, John! I've put some of the higher-resolution photos I've received in them and I think they'll look great! :)

As a head's up for everybody participating in the convention, set-up time for our display will be on Fri evening from 4-6pm and 8-10pm (I'll be there during the former session), and on Saturday from 8:30 am 'til noon (I'll be there for the latter part of this as well - getting me up before 10 on a weekend is a difficult feat!).

If you can't drop off your tanks/materials at any of the above times, you can arrange to drop them off at my place Thursday evening (I usually get home from work at about 6-ish).

I can still print photos if anyone else wants to send me any/more, too!

Also, we're looking for plant donations to sell at the mini-auctions following the two planted tank lectures (Friday at noon = easy aquarium plants, Saturday night = North American natives). Half the proceeds will go to the NEC, the other half will go to CAPE's club funds. We'd really appreciate anything anybody's willing to offer!

Hi, I'm going to bring my emersed bowl by your house on Thursday as I won't be able to make it on Friday. I'm going to come up on Saturday, though, in case anyone wants to carpool.

Gordon - I managed to nab a really huge L. thwaitesii elsewhere, but would love to look at any unusual crypts you might have... and of course I'll buy some stuff from your table (you have a table, right?)

Luke - sure thing (though there is some set-up time on Sat. morning). If I'm not home yet when you get there (the traffic is always unpredictable), feel free to leave the bowl in the acrylic wet/dry filter thing by the sidewalk in back of the house (you can't miss it... it's a giant clear acrylic box).

Sorry but I won't be able to make it at the convention on Saturday (overlooked my wife's work schedule) :( Good luck to our booth and bring a camera to take pics!

Yes I have a table there this year but won't be bringing an astronomically large amount of plants. Will be offer special orders while there. You have to join my mailing list :^)

I will have some crypts you don't have and commercial varieties.
Have some awesome aflame swords too.
Will be very interesting, first time as a vendor somewhere :^)

...And the convention is now over (actually it was over yesterday and the night before LOL, but I'm burnt out!)

Our plant display was well-received, and I am now officially broke (Gordon, this is partly your fault. Two words: CRYPT NURII. Blame is to be shared with Rachel O'Leary and Frank's Aquarium. And the guy who sold those nice Bolbitis. And the auction, of course).

On the other hand, I am now the proud owner of all sorts of cool new things - tons of random killifish and livebearers, some cute baby cichlids, adorable loaches, a shoal of Hara jerdoni, live food cultures, Buenos Aires tetras, random miscellaneous plants, the aforementioned Crypt nurii...

Also, the results of the planted tank contest are as follows:

John & Myself - 1st place (next time I see you I'll give you your cut of the prize, which is some Seachem ferts and a book).
Luke - 2nd place (your prize is a book called The Toy Fish, about the history of the aquarium hobby)

Yay, everyone!
