Great to see @Lchi87 and @KingD again and meet @shutterbug13 and @coralbandit today!

L to R: Shutterbug13, Lchi87, KingD and Me. I think Lchi87 has a selfie with coralbadit.

I couldn't help myself and got another pleco. Eyes are a bit cockeyed but not as bad as pictured.

Those eyes! LOL. Great pics, good to see FL folks getting together and sharing.
I just noticed after I took the pic and then looked at it again. This is supposed to glow in the dark too

Just started
I can’t tell if you guys are talking about the real one or the stuffed one. I think it’s the former, but then you guys start talking about it glowing and stuff.

How big is it? Looks like a foot and a half maybe?
It's just about 12". I saw these a few months ago and always wanted one but never motivated to order one. I saw a booth with stuffed fish so I went there to see if they had any and they did so I got one.

I placed it strategically so I could get a pic of both real and stuffed

I got some shrimp (amano and blue dream), two pieces of spiderwood, and a ton of free food samples. I post some pictures soon.
I got Lchi87's missed call and text about 15m after she sent it. We went out to our cars and I grabbed the plants for you but we missed you . If you still want some plants, let me know.

I would have totally loved nerding out to something like this for sure, but nowhere near the east coast. And my head probably would have got cut off in the group picture, i am kind of a giant! Sounded like a blast though!

Awesome!! I wanted one of those but didn't buy one.
I needed a dedicated shrimp tank and when I saw these I just fell in love, lol. They were a little pricey, and I walked away a couple of times, but I knew I would regret it if I didn't take one home. RCS shrimp were on sale at the show too, so let's just say it was the perfect storm
So I bought one of the cheaper cubes, only $150 but worth every cent. It got jostled around a bit on the ride back home, but I think I finally got everything back in its place.
Added the shrimp and they're setting in, I think they love their new home as much as I do.
We saw Cory from aquarium co-op and a few other Youtubers. And my wife got a cool "Fish Tube" tshirt signed by Flip Aquatics. She's already asking if we could go back again Sunday.
My cat really likes the shirt too as you can see lol.

I mostly went to meet up with people and really enjoyed myself.
I bought a shirt still out in the car after my 3 hour ride home .
It was real nice to meet up with everyone .
As far as the expo goes I think I actually prefer the NEC swap meets ..I NEED FISH not more fish goods ,but some of the stuff like ADA ,Lucas Bretz and others was cool and needs to be seen in person to truly appreciate .
Noticed the first place angelfish was nice looking Albino Dantumn !
All in all I am a fish head so it was pretty cool.

Thank you so much for trying, I really appreciate it. Sorry I missed you. I'll talk to you soon about some plants after I make a trip to my LFS and see what I pick up there. Thanks again!

I ended up not buying anything at AE but I went to the Fish Hut to buy an apisto pair and I bought 10 habrosus Cory’s at Absolutely Fish. I got plants from @DarkOne and @Lchi87. Thank you both again, they’ll be out to good use. I also got free food samples and stickers and such.
