Reefstock is over but don't despair, we have a great show coming up right here in north Colorado Springs. We have some great vendors, a HUGE raffle, a live equipment auction, and door prizes. This is one you won't want to miss!

Who is "Southwest Coral Con?"

Kind of reminds me that company AquaCon who's reputation was always being matched to their name. No idea if they were good or bad but the name was always funny when someone complained about them.

It's me :-). We also have a show coming up in May in Albuquerque. Not related to aquacon in any way.

I was around for a few years and then fell off the map, been lurking g around lately. I have really got back into the hobby and needed to frag some stuff and get rid of it. I was the VP of the club for a year, most of the old members still in the club know me, Murf, Roy, ect. Hopefully I can make the meeting this month, I look forward to getting to know everyone. As I look at my old tank in my tank thread it keeps me motivated. I'll be easy to spot at the show because I'll be the only one running metal Halide lamps, I'm a die hard fan and have always had great results. If it's not broke, don't fix it [emoji3].

Smurfing sells corals these days. I don't even want to see a coral unless I can see what it will look like under all blues lol. I like to know what it will look like during the day but my lighting schedule is such that I am gone for all the white light and get to come home and enjoy the smurfed out rainbow in my tank

Looks like we might see some snow on Saturday (which doesn't sound like it'll be too bad!), but you know what that means -- better odds for the raffle! If anybody is interested in staying at the hotel MCM Elegante, they do have special room rates for us, at just $69 plus tax (and for any wives traveling with you, the huge Chapel Hills Mall and other shopping opportunities are just a stone's throw away!). Their number is (719) 590-1111, and tell them that you are coming for Colorado Coral Con to get the special rate!

Let's not start that silliness. :p Androids have better antennas, are more customizable and most have expandable memory. Ok, we got that out of the way. iPhone offers constancy, each iteration looks familiar. Everything doesn't change each iteration, there isn't a whole lot of maintenance to do other than clearing Safari cache and rebooting the phone. Put away your appendages, no one wants it waving around :|

I don't know if you know this, but your milkshake is not getting anyone to your yard. Your corals and ability to get just about anything is. Now put some clothes on, cargo shorts and flip flops are acceptable in lieu of pants and shoes. The missus is the only one who wants to see the rest of you :)
