The previous post mentioned seeing Sam Scalz and Mo Devlin. Not long after I ran into those guys, I went by Jodi and Brantley Berry’s booth in the vendor room. The Berry’s are the proprietor’s of Pleco Caves. If you need some ceramic caves, you have to go to their website and see what they offer. I have posted more than once about their business, and they have made custom caves and tubes for me. They also have a Facebook page. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
If they don’t make what you’re looking for, just tell them what you want. They do custom work, and chances are they can make something for you. Check out the photo below for the enormous variety that they produce.
I wrapped up the evening by attending three fantastic talks by well known cichlidophiles – Juan Miguel Artigas Azas, Oliver Lucanus, and Chris “The Mad Aquarist” Biggs. I’ll post more about these talks later.
And this is all just in day one. More tomorrow!
