ACA convention is next week!

Can't wait. One week and one day until I fly out.

Anyone have any recommendations for lfs in the Springfield area?

I'm hoping to buy some Demasoni and Estherae. I'll look for you.

I haven't seen any estherae but there are some demasoni in the rental tank room for sale.

I am working in the Aqueon booth so if you see a guy with glasses and a Central shirt on it's me.

Nice to meet you Narwhal, and great demonstration on how the new Aqueon LED fixtures light up those red/orange/yellow/blue fish better than the "average" LED!! I'll definitely be looking into that further.

I was able to get demasoni from a prize-winning strain (best in show 2 years ago and 2nd among mbuna this year).

Other memorable events include hearing Laif DeMason speak, and my first time hearing Charley Grimes legendary Dead Fish Talk.

Nice to meet you too DJ.

I just got back. Followed up the ACA with a family vacation in the woods.

Glad you were able to get some nice demasoni. I ended up with a bag of Neolamprologous savoryi (even though I promised I wouldn't buy fish) and a number of pieces of cichlid art.

The savoryi are at the top of my wish list. Would love it if you started a thread with pics of the fish and setup and shared your experience with them.

I will have to do that.

I wasn't planning on bringing fish back from the ACA with me on the plane. But after seeing an adult in the show my mind was changed. Fortunately there was a local breeder in the NEC.

I can tell you that they are pretty feisty even at 3/4" juvenile size. I put them in a 25 gallon tank and they immediately kicked all the shellies out of their shells and are terrorizing everyone. I will have to move them to a different tank soon.
