My first time, I'm still researching on what I want to do with my first freshwater tank. Not planning to bid on anything , I just want to go and look at the neat things people have for sale.
I haven't been to one in about 5 years or so, but they are usually hit or miss. I wouldn't expect anything spectacular, but there are some gems to be found. There is a new buy it now part that could be interesting. I also saw that they don't allow inverts which is disappointing.
I'm also hoping to start attending the meetings and meet some people.
