    Dave asked me to put up a pic of me and my buddy having a conversation over what to buy... we went halfsies.

    He was gonna go but had a wedding with the family to attend, so I gave him the next best thing, WYSIWYG... LOL. He is sitting in church, all day, texting with me while I send him pics from KoR. ;Hilarious

    Haha. I called SoF and asked if they wanted it. Never got a response. I think they hung up. LOL.

    Believe it or not, I've got it in the fuge. After much hesitation, and being called a "pansy" by someone, I dropped my guard for the QT regiment and trust ur tank doesnt have any surprises for me.

    I figured the bristle worms would love the fuge, and to my surprise, the polyps are "testing the water" under the Aqueon Clip on LED I use. We shall see what tomorrow brings.

    So today was amazing, attended the OSA Keep on Reefing Expo in Groton, CT. It was my first reef expo ever.

    Got to see a thousand+ corals, try my luck (in vain) at some amazing giveaways. Met a bunch of awesome people and hang with some friends. Sadly some couldnt make it, but that is only a mishap and bad timing.

    I have to say, even though I didnt win a raffle item, I was incredibly happy all day, and snagged some awesome swag from the early bird special bags and also from the r2r booth.

    Thanks @Scurvy for the opportunity. And I'm sorry you couldnt make it. Work sucks. But it pays for coral :D
    @NY_Caveman, you ain't getting away that easy. We will figure something out for summer. A bbq at @Fudsey 's place in the sticks is possibly in the works. We'll see.

    Thanks to @revhtree and the #reefsquad for any ideas and help. And thanks to his wife and daughter who drove 1,000 miles to make it to CT with David to drop off a RED SEA Reefer complete system giveaway. Just awesome.

    This was my first expo, but certainly not the last. Cheers and gnite all.

    My girlfriend and i also atteneded and what a great time we were lucky enough to win at the raffle 3 times...they were all for frozen food but wining still feels good. We were able to chat with a lot of great people and pick up a couple new corals and some toys for the tank[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I have a frag of it in the sand bed isolated already, might employ the idea of doing a side wall covered in it. Havent decided yet.

    Nice! Almost as nice as that GSP colony you got. Gotta pick a day this week to get you some Kenya Tree bud.
