    It was good to see Python back out on the convention circuit.

    [​IMG]

    A new one for me.
    [​IMG]

    And some other items like books and art.
    [​IMG]
    There was lots of art work in the show too.
    One of these days I will own one of these for my powder room at home. LOL

    They had this out in the hallway.
    Thought it was interesting. Hard to see small fish in there but the Grandkids would love it.
    Thinking about a project. Make one into a bar?
    Stain it real dark and put a Ravens logo on it?
    Hmm.

    The filters and everything in the drawer.

    What everyone should have in their fridge.
    Water, coke, brine shrimp eggs, and beer. From Eric's talk.

    I took a picture (on my phone) of the same slide....

    Sounds like a completely worthy cause to me.

    ****! Glasscages was there? $^%^%$&^(_)

    My plan was to come Friday night and Saturday. However, when I got home from dinner, my cat was paralyzed and I had to find an emergency vet. He did not make it. Needless to say, I wasn't in the mood to socialize after that.

    Sorry about your cat, Francine. We missed you!

    I agree that Internationalrivers.org sounds like a good cause. I think we should put the $50 we won from Frank's victory in the fish show towards the effort.

    Good idea

    IR is the real deal, knew them when they were starting out, much better proposition than most larger NGOs and a lot more influential and effective than funding "research".

    I saw that Wendy posted a bunch of fish show pics over on ECC.

    Wendy - would you mind posting some of them up here?

    No doubt -- here are some of my faves that I took from the fish show. You can tell me if you want some more, don't want to completely dominate the thread.

    I have a few hospitality suite ones that I just need to get off my iPhone. Somehow my iCloud hates me so I have to actually figure out how to do that. :p

    [​IMG]

    In all seriousness, I need to determine what type of betta this is and the best place I can get one. My nano is waiting!

    Was the catfish after the betta the winner?

    The show was in tear-down mode after the awards...and the tanks weren't marked, so didn't have a chance to know!
