Bill63SG and I will be there. I've got some 2 and 3 inch RTs I'm hoping to post on the GCCA site in the next couple of days and I know Bill has a couple types available, including a limited number of Rose Reds. We were hoping to get a table, but I saw last night they were already sold out.

Awesome, hopefully you guys do get a table. Are your RT straight line or regular?

Not sure I've ever given that much thought and at this size the markings still have a lot of developing to do. Here's a few shots of the parents though so you can see the genetics. Not the best pictures I've ever taken, but it'll give you a pretty good idea. I'm sure Bill and I are thinking at this point we'll probably have to settle for taking pre-orders and just dealing fish in the parking lot. :)

Mom - I'd say some straight line characteristics

Dad - more classic markings

This one isn't focused very well, but does show the true color beter

Both mom and dad were fathered by an awesome RT from Kenny.

Probably more like a back of the car dance, since all the tables sold to GCCA members and non-members couldn't attempt to get one until tomorrow. It's a little annoying actually, because I sent an e-mail through the GCCA website trying to find out if I should become a member to get a table and I never heard back from anyone. I received an automated response saying "Thank you for contacting the GCCA. We'll do our best to get back to you as soon as we can.", but I guess as soon as they can is longer than 37 days. I contacted them August 14.

I was thinking helium balloons strung between or vehicles with D I S C U S written on them. More than a little tough without power though. That and I wonder how long it would take them to run us off.

I guess I'd prefer that to rotten tomatoes. I've just been on-line checking out power inverters, maybe we will try to bring some fish.

The female bd and a young carnation pair is all I have left for sale atm and the bd is spoken for so no use for two fish. Lol though last time I was sold out within 30 min of it opening I think.

Done. I'll send you a PM. Maybe I'll walk around with pictures of the parents on my back like they do at the gun shows.

You got elevated to that status when you got the female Red Cover from me and she produced for you. :)

If I get enough interest, I will have about 30 ARSG/Albino Leopard F1 Intermedate. The juvies are seen in this thread. I have 12 committed to members as of this post. But as I said, I dont have a table but can bring some juvies there if you have buckets or bags.
