I love seeing photos from our meetings; it feels like we're have the fun all over again! I took a few pictures at this one, as well. Bert is such a dedicated documenter, he rarely ends in the pics, so I made sure to remedy that as soon as he walked in the door!
Our club VP and overall terrific guy, badxgillen joined me in adding a splash of color to the group! Groovy tie dye, dude.
Is it just me, or is Sean giving a look of, "WHY would you take my photo?!" Well, I did, and I'm posting it here! Gotcha! His lovely wife Darcy put up with our club shenanigans rather well.
Lewisfisherman & theclark, labeling themselves and eyeing the tasty selection of appetizers.
Miles here, doing a bit of socializing with dog and baby, reefers by association.
Our gracious host, Stylaster, standing by to control the amount of drool falling into his frag tank as members came through to eye up the goods.
Dodge & Jeremy, checking out the display tank of wonder: 312 gallons of colors and textures galore!
How does the lemonpeel hybrid do with all these corals?
Well, there's your answer! Black Lemon didn't wait for Roy to tell his business to anyone; he just showed us! Apparently, this is the only fish in the tank who cannot be tricked into a trap. The tangs will be feasting away and having a grand time in it, while the angel looks on all-knowing and wisely stays out. Who can blame him for wanting to leave such a rich buffet? He probably has it better in this tank than he did on the reef in the wild!
Look at those beggars! Always at the front of the tank wanting more food, despite being incredibly well fed.
Vlamingi enjoying a bit of personal attention from his human. Ahhh, yeah, that's the spot! Scratch right there!
Impossible to view without a sense of calm washing over. At least until the envy sets in!
Time for some fragging! I joked the loser of the raffle would get this frag of putty being sawed off, but there ended up being enough of each coral that everyone went home with a frag of each! (Except for Beth, who left without taking hers. If you're reading this, let us know! She couldn't remember her username at the meeting, so we don't know who to contact.)
Intense concentration from these guys!
If you enjoy playing Where's Waldo?, you can play Where's Bert? and Where's Karen? in this photo!
Old Man Max checking in on how the fragging demo is going. He's thinking of starting a tank now that he's reached retirement age.
Miles getting in a bit of bonding time with my 14-year-old fur monster. Big thanks to Roy for welcoming Princeton to the party!
Yours truly, happy to have spent the afternoon with fine friends of the reef keeping variety! See you at the next one!
