I was one of the ones who won a membership.......... I just joined a few weeks ago! If I can apply it to 2016 great, otherwise I would gladly donate it to someone in need....school club....anyone curious about the addiction ( I mean hobby).
I think the nametag idea would be a good idea, that might generate some added interest to the club.
That was my first Fragstock and it was quite overwhelming. I appreciate the patience of EVERY vendor in answering my questions and not pushing any products. I actually didn't spend as much as I thought I would, but was actually thinking of where in my tank I would put corals. I picked up some beautiful zoas, a couple of ricordeas and an acan to see how it would do in my system. And, finally, I got a Tunze ato.........you know what I mean.
I was happy to see Best Fish there and was not even aware of The Feed Bag in Mequon.... I'll have to stop in there.
Thanks again to all of the vendors, sponsors and those who set everything up. Hopefully I'll have a bigger tank setup before the next Fragstock
Welcome! From what I've heard, you'll be happy with the tunze ATO.
IMO Best Fish and The Feed Bag are the 2 best SW/reef stores in the area. I have been to plenty of them around town when I was first starting out. Of course, I had to start with the "below par" stores. However, these two stores have great livestock and wonderful customer service. That right there is the top two (IMO) for bringing a customer back in the door. Best Fish also has so much dry goods, it's awesome when you need something that day and don't want to pay $569 for overnight shipping.
I had a great time at the FStock. It's hard to stop once you get the ball rolling and start at one end and work towards the other...
I ended up with 2 yellow tangs, one for my frag tank, one for my main. I got some tyree space monsters!!
, for other zoas, scrambled eggs, cherry something (I can't remember ATM). Then I told my daughter to pick out a frag that will be "hers" and she points to some rastas
I love my little girl! The GF bought a rainbow BTA, I got a frogskin acro, setosa, 3 mangroves and I think that was it. I was a total kid in a candy store!
