Ah the Missus, a potentially tough situation.

My g/f is putting the pressure on to get my passport so I can locate some ADA Amazonia for my 75g tank in Buffalo, making a weekend out of it. We might even use her truck

Lucky you man. Last time I bought an acrylic sump for my tank, she made a big fuss about how i spend more money on my fish than her LOL, I ended up in the LV store down in yorkdale after that...

My wife has a moratorium on further tank expansion. Apparently she thinks I have more tanks than any mortal has a right to. :-) It's only ten, and the largest is only 50 gallons. I really need a 130 gallon tank. really really.

LOL, yeaa, I get the same problems too. Only way for me to solve these issues is a trip to the LV store.

My tanks are limited, as I rent a small apartment. If my g/f was being truly supportive, I'd have a fishroom at her place

Well I had the same number of tanks in my small apartment before I moved into a house.

It was hard to sleep in my bedroom with that many tanks burbling, because in those days I had an air-pump running in each tank, plus the filter noise, times six tanks in my bedroom. :-)

Nowadays you know to use one large air-pump (quieter), to run 6 tanks,
quieter, and uses less hydro

I can sleep thru tank gurgling, when I don't hear it, I think 'what's wrong ? or 'where am I ?' There is a point when it gets too loud tho. My 40g is right behind me. Python time oh the joy...

You realize the GTA includes Toronto, York, Peel, Durham and even Halton? I'm not sure what the geographic centre would be, but I think Yonge & Empress is pretty good

Sadly I'll be missing the Nov. meeting. Out of town that night, just my luck.

As it turns out I'll be making one of my rare appearances to pay a very generous and helpful Bae an outstanding debt, pay my fees for next year, and stock up on a few items.

Andrew, it sucks that you can't make it ! It'll be good to catch up on stuff, need to pick your brain on some setup stuff, see what you need for your fishroom changes, we might be able to do some trading

So who's coming ?

I'm bringing the following to trade or give away at TWAS meeting:

- Hornwort
- a few small java ferns to get someone started.
- stems of indian rotala (do very well in low light)
- juvenile Convicts
- juvenile Platies


I can also provide snails, if anybody wants tiny ramshorns or large-ish MTS.
