Going to Exotic Pet Expo Tomorrow - Will Follow Up Afterwards!

Tomorrow, I am going to the exotic pet expo.

My wife said she doesn't care what I come home with (she just got a new washer and dryer - she owes me!), and I plan on getting a number of things. Dont worry, I've currently got about 20 empty tanks set up with heaters and such just crying to me.

I want to get an albino bearded dragon, 4-6 african house snakes, a green tree python, another pueblan milk snake, *possibly* a burm, but if I wanna do that I gotta get a bedroom ready for him and buy another doghouse for a hidehouse.

Also, maybe 3 or so more pacman frogs, an african sideneck aquatic turtle, some rare jet black koi (dont know yet, full grown they push $1000!!!), an asian box turtle, a pancake tortoise, some green anoles, long tailed lizards, cuban and green tree frogs and other communal herps an amphibs for a 200g community rainforest tank.

I also want an uromastyx and a mangrove or savannah monitor.

We'll see how things go tomorrow. I plan on taking a hefty wallet full of cash to the expo. :P My wifes going with me, and shes been crying because she wants a toad and macaw. We'll see...

ABOVE EVERYTHING - will be mice breeding supplies - I'm tired of spending $100-$200 a WEEK on mice. Maybe some vinegar eel cultures too.
