    Hello all,

    We are less than two weeks away from our next meeting! Join us on March 17th at 1pm (doors open at 12:30) at the Hody in Middleton. Josh Weigert will be our speaker so come and hear his great presentation!

    As usual we will have our "mini" auction so bring in those BAP and GARP submissions and other items you want to share with your fellow aquarists.

    The GARP theme this month is roll out the red carpet- monthly bonus points for plants with red. I will be bringing in some of my red plants! I don't think I will have any BAP bags this month but I am sure others will. Please enter your items into mygroupactions.com ahead of time if possible, it saves time on the day of the meeting. Feel free to comment on what you are bringing on this thread as well so we can all prep our tanks for new arrivals!

    I will post agendas for both the general meeting and the EB meeting when I get a chance. EB (Executive Board) meetings take place prior to the general meeting and all are welcome to attend. We usually start about 11 AM.

    I've got some Cryptocoryne Flamingo. They are pink, but would that count as a red plant?

    Six Neolamprologus sexfasciatus "gold" Kipili
    They are just beginning to display breeding behavior so will need a well scaped tank to give the less dominant fish places to hide.

    BAP - Geophagus steindachneri, Cryptoheros panamensis, and Haplochromis brownae should all be big enough. EDIT - I just counted and they will only be 42 days old. Never mind! I should have a bunch for April.

    I'm planning on bringing goldenback neo shrimp, white cloud mountain minnows (great for summer tubbing) and some christmas moss.

    I'd like to put them onto the MyGroupAuction site. Any idea when the March auction will be available?
