Well the show looked like a big success with lots of people present for the auction and lots of fish in the show!
There was cichlids, catfish, and tetra/barbs, and also an aquascaping contest! Fun stuff!

I missed the speakers because of my schedule and checked out the auction. I was hoping to see some C. nanoluteus, but no dice! If I pick some up at Chicago I may be the only guy in St.Louis with them!

I met up with some Internet friends and also talked to Steve Edie(ACA BOT) briefly. Nice guy! He is a fan of Mo's pics and videos! I was hoping to run into Ad Konings but he was long gone by the time I got there. I wish I would of had more time!(I'm such a bad planner!)

I took some pics of the show tables to show that there was plenty of display tanks and entries, but was rushed and did not get all the info...

Here is a pic of the Auction bags 1.5 hours after the auction started, so I am unsure how many bags were really there!!!

I was only there about 1.5 hours but had a blast! I wish this club met on weekends instead of Thursday Night once a month. I have a hard time getting out there. :(

I hope everyone enjoyed my pics and what little knowledge I had for descriptions. Next time I will take notes. ;)

Looks like a good time.

BTW That cory looks like C. sterbai to me (orange pec fins?).
