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

Where's the pic of the GSP????? Hmmmmmm
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.

Congrats! Me and @Fudsey were standing right behind you. And I'm not gonna lie, I was giving you a stink eye through the back of your head! Hahaha. Nice scores man.

I knew it would open right up. It should be in your display ;Yuck;Yuck
Ehhhh. I grow grass in my yard. Dont need anymore in the tank ;)

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.
