Macna 2007 - Yes- Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We are here at MACNA and it is awesome, lots of vendors and corals. I have already purchased 3 corals and I may get one more depends on if it is available and if I can get the price down.

I talked a little with The Coral Broker guys and purchased 2 of my corals from them, great group of guys. I purchased the other coral from the 200 gallon display tank that is up for raffle Sunday. The 200 gallon zero edge aquarium is awesome and will make a great tank for the winner

I talked with Rea Sea and got a from 50Gallon Mix bucket of Coral Pro Salt. I also received a free shirt from Two Little Fishies and Dr. Foster & Smith. ORA gave out 1oz bags of there new food. The Pittsburgh team gave out Number 4 of C The Jounal by anthony Calfo and a small cooler.

I will post some pictures tomorrow but so far it has been well worth the drive over.

PMASI has done a great job with MACNA XIX

Tomorrow I am going to chat with Premium Aquatics, UberFrags, Tunze, and some others plus see some speakers and go to the Zoo.

I SO wanted to go this year, it would have been my first MACNA, but missed out because we've just moved house and couldn't really afford to take a trip at this point (in terms of both time and money). I hope you all have a fantastic time! Take lots of pictures please, and post some when you get back

There are some awesome displays and the speakers are great.

For pics I will put up a slideshow when all is over. The only question I'm having is Marc, where are you???? I've run into Skip a dozen or so times but have yet to see you. I'll be over by the lounge poster most of the morning, find me!!!!

You guys must do this whenever you get the chance. Everything involving reefkeeping is here. It's also great to meet the people from here that you've communicated with through the years.


one more day!!!!!
