A reef convention is rare air for sure

It's the one place in reefing you see zero panicking for ammonia control, yet all systems you're seeing are under 7 days old and most are carrying stock worth thousands of dollars. Somehow the sellers do no stumbling regarding the cycle, and its been this way thirty straight years.

try to imagine reef tank sellers setting up $50K torch coral displays there but electing to go home instead because api said a clear obvious .5 in the display. ever seen a seller at a convention pack up, leave home? how much does api testing weigh in their ability to create a ready reef, on time?

ever seen a crashed display reef at a convention? I haven't. been to a lot


by contrast, how messy and helpless are forum cycles

how long do they take


how confident are the cyclers


do they stumble? do forum cyclers ever feel their cycle broke, months into the setup (and go buy more bacteria)


rare rare air.

They have mastered the art of using just the right mix of bottle bac and quarry rock from a secret (wet) location!

If i travel I have to go to Florida, Orlando to see a new grandson. I wonder if I can make a quick lay over in Dallas?

Maybe I'll do all the spelling for them :rolling-on-the-floor-laughing:
Oh no, it wasn’t them! They and their booth are always professional. They couldn’t stop laughing at me for my complete and utter inability to walk past misspellings at past events without making an effort to get them corrected. :flushed-face:

It wasn't just stuff at the show...I'm remembering the great breakfast sandwich debacle. :rolling-on-the-floor-laughing::rolling-on-the-floor-laughing::rolling-on-the-floor-laughing:
