I'll keep it and use it as sandbox sand I guess because I can't tell the difference between the GCCA Swap and the GCCA Parking lot Swap

I got there about 10:20, it was already packed.
Lots of cool fish.

But not a fan of these swaps. With barely any room to move, and more than a handful of the people needing basic bathing tips, makes for a very uncomfortable experience. But i did get some cherries and some frozen bloodworms at a good price

Yeah, the only crappy part is how small of a venue they use. They need something bigger because I notice more and more people showing up to these things every time. And yes, the BO isn't always pleasant.

You can usually find good prices on stuff, which is why I go
