Re: how "little" things can make our day !

Z-and others..
I have made it to the past few ACA conventions but never to the OCA ex on turkey day weekend..I've heard alot of comnparisons...So from what I understand it's the same format on on the weekend mainly? A more casual silent auctions/room hop etc on saturday then the big auction on sunday?  I am going to try my best to get thier..probablly for one day only..now..what day to go is the next decision:)  Let me know you guys insights..I honestly have liked saturdays on the ACA..most of the auction items are available for sale on saturday without hassling bidding:) Catch ya latr!

Jerry, Thanks for putting us in the "power breeders" catagory. I at least wonder why. I will say this for myself but I am sure the others will agree. When I started Apisto's, all I had were books to go by. I have had conversations with Wayne Leibel, Kurt Zadnik and many others from the ASG and we all had to learn by trial and error. If we can in any way make it easier for the new breeders to get set up a little faster; all the better. I have bred only about 20 different Apistogramma species but I don't tell you about the other 30 or more that I have killed or let die because I didn't have my RO unit. I had one pair of Discus in a 55 that laid eggs every other week for almost a year before I purchased the RO unit and then had a successful spawn.
      All the fish I lost can never be made up by those I am spawning now.
      Those within driving distance of Cleveland, OH, try to make the OCA Ex the weekend of 11/16-18/01.
