    Quite sure Bob said there was a subway/train from the Newark airport to right near the hotel and a hotel shuttle available from there as well.

    Only 5 more days until I start heading to NJ! Working through the final details it looks like this is going to be awesome show. The fish entries may be the most and best ever, going to be a bunch of vendors, not too late to sign up.

    My wife needs the Honda Pilot this time around so I'm renting a vehicle to drive there. My 1996 GMC Sierra might make it but why chance it on a 9 hr drive...so rental keys are available to you Ricardo if you need to go somewhere.

    Hello all. I just registered for this event, after being encouraged by discuspaul (on another forum). I live in north NJ not too far from the hotel so it's not too much trouble to get there.

    I don't currently keep discus, but it has been my dream since age 6 to do so (I am 21 now). I have quite a few years of schooling ahead of me so it's not on the cards for a while, but in the meantime I'm looking to accumulate knowledge for when I do finally get to run a discus tank. In particular, I am interested in planted discus display tanks. If anyone is willing to offer some advice or companionship I'd be appreciative of it.

    All you have to do is walk into the showroom, find two people talking, walk up, introduce yourself, and listen in. Your bound to learn a ton and meet a lot of good helpful folks. Welcome.

    Great to hear that you've registered for the NADA show and joined the SD forum.
    See you there.

    I live about 1 hour away from this event. Does anyone know if they sell Discus there as well. I had Discus years ago, but when Sandy hit....I lost them all due to no power and heat. I am looking to get back into it. I just clean out my tank and replaced old sand. I have a little more cycling to do in the water to feel comfortable adding any Discus.

    Any suggestions about the pricing/location in NNJ to get fish would help.

    Welcome to SD Lenon,

    There will be quality breeders selling Discus and possibly some Show Discus entries may also find a way into your home on the Sunday.
    So would encourage you are there early Sunday morning.

    There is 1 vendor selling a couple of pairs and 1 or 2 vendors selling numerous fish. There's also one individual who I believe is bring some younger fish. You can also often find out who particular show fish belong to and purchase them throughout the show, though the fish usually stay on site until Sunday morning or late Saturday night.

    Dr. Smith who spoke in Chicago is again speaking in NJ. In Chicago he highly recommended one commercial product to cycle tanks. I used it shortly after the Chicago show and it worked very well, wish I could remember the name of it.

    Keith, Are you speaking of the reverse osmosis? I am reading up on that method and it seems pretty good.

    No Lenon, it was a commercial bacteria product to basically instantly cycle the tank. I plan to ask him what it was and purchase some more right away...I'm bringing home fish one way or another.

    I’ll post it tomorrow Al, the pictures and information is on my laptop and I’m sitting at the airport with a five hour delay. I don’t get home until after 11 PM.

    It was a great show and I have a bunch of pics!!
