Chicago Aquatic Experience

I think it is pretty cool to have an event like this coming to Chicago, I for one will be checking it out. 

Aquatic Experience – Chicago is the first show in our industry’s history to combine everything aquatic under one roof. From saltwater to freshwater with pond and aquatic animals, we’ll have it all. Consumers and retailers are invited to join us for educational seminars and a thriving show floor filled with hobbyists from entry level to the most sophisticated aquarium keepers as well as livestock and equipment experts and the industries best and trend setting manufacturers. Add in a bevy of high powered speakers you’ve heard of and read articles from but have not had the chance to meet in person and you’ve got a “must see” for any aquarist no matter what their experience level. - See more at: http://aquaticexperience.org/

I'll definately be stopping in for this, it's actually crazy seeing this because the gf already had me buy tickets to the Baking and Sweets convention that is going on at the Schaumburg Convention center the same weekend as this! Can hit both now!

Who's going?

Video of Cichlasoma Ornatum

Rumor has it that someone in our club has a group of these and is trying to BAP them

I highly doubt anyone has 'Cichlasoma' ornatum. Given where all the exports came from they have to be 'Cichlasoma' gephyrum which is a very similar species that is just as pretty. 'C'. ornatum is found in Southern Colombia and Northern Ecuador. The exports are coming from drainages in the Central and Northern parts of Colombia.

Had to give my 'C.' gephyrum to my dad as I'm moving. Hopefully he can get them to spawn. They should be approaching the right size. They are beautiful fish, I might have to take them back at some point.

Wishing our member success. They've been coming in in small numbers recently. It would be nice to be first. Glad now that I didn't spring for six wild caught myself. These are in a much better situation.
