    Mention BAR and sponsorship possibilities, if they seem worthy.

    I went to Aquatic Collection and I was surprised they are not sponsors.... Why aren't they? I saw Mr. Ugly there too, it just seems like match made in Heaven

    They were a long time sponsor, and recently decided not to continue on. It was explained to me awhile back, but I'm a little foggy on the exact reasons. Best to ask Karson personally if you're curious.

    i like that reply. No sponsorship for Bar, no more business of mine.
    j/k I'm sure Karson had his reasons.

    I'm sure he did, but if it's something we weren't given an opportunity to address I'd rather vote with my dollars at those that support us. There's nothing there that's not available at other sponsors stores so I'd rather get stuff elsewhere.

    Aquatic collection is a great store. One of the absolute best 2 in our area. They have been an overwhelmingly awesome sponsor for more than 7 years, not sure when they actually started being a sponsor. A lot has changed within the hobby and the club. I believe that Karson used to feel more a part of the club and good friends with several people who are no longer around. Maybe us new guys haven't made enough effort to be friends and say thanks for sponsoring when we are at the store is part of it?
    I think the best thing we can all do is make sure they know we are BAR members when we are in there, and thank them for having been a long time sponsor of the club. Maybe even ask why they aren't a sponsor anymore in a nice way. Let them know we appreciate them and want them.

    Probably only thing that'll get you there is if they had a harem of centrogype boylei cheap for sale...

    Thanks for the new shop heads up. It's only 12 mins away from us! I'll also try to get there around 4.

    Was just at infinite, a little underwhelming for a grand opening but I guess that's expected for a new store. They do have a lot of tanks so I guess there's potential for growth. I'll wait a few months before I go back again.
