The others are fine.
I stripped the audio from a few of the vids where there was a lot of background noise and other people talking in the area.

Thanks for posting all the pictures and videos so we can watch over seas. Nice the walk through the store to see everything else available. Wow!

The videos and photos are really fantastic! I have never seen a shop like Emma and Steve's. Truely amazing! It is also great to put faces to the great people here. Thank you.

Sounds like a broken record but I also really enjoyed the pics and videos, thanks for sharing!!. Incredible shop Emma! I'm afraid I'd go broke and have to beg for a job if I lived nearby.

So much for the "Mini" LOL meet! Wow!

It'll be "Loachstock" soon I tell ya :wink:

Thanks for the pics, the vids and posts. It takes me back to that first time we got together in 2006 while I was in England. The vids make it all more three-dimensional and real. Seeing stuff from the pub would have been a giggle with sound and movement I bet.

Em, with that bright waistcoat you just needed to borrow Hel's glasses for mega-impact. Am I wrong in thinking everyone who was there in 2006 put on a little weight since then EXCEPT you Emma? I know I have.

Nice to put a face to Mick and Ashleigh at last :)

yeah Martin i'm the oldish bugger, but it was a great day to meet all of them, the only two i'd met before was Graeme and the duff man, two great lads with loads of passion for fish as everybody there shown.
just a shame you could'nt make it over we might have stayed in the pub a bit longer. :lol:

I so wish I could have been there. It looks like everyone had fun :D

Thanks for posting the pics and especially the vids. Les, your tour of the store was fantastic! Have you considered auditioning for the BBC? You really would make a fine commentator!

Doh!...I missed LES's walk around vid before. Excellent stuff LES as it really shows anyone who's never experienced what we have how great the shop is.

You still have to actually be there to look into the tanks and see the sheer variety and quality of the fish on sale for it to hit home properly though.

Oh and Emma.....those are fabulous looking Uaru in the Clown tank. They are such graceful fish.

Martin.

Thank you for the pics and the videos. We enjoyed them, too. The tour of Emma's and Steve's store was unbelievable. I would love to have a store like that nearby.
