Otis That's one of the joys of a swap in that you can spend as little or as much time there as you would like.

It's always advisable to get there early though, not everything lasts all day long.

more swap meet info

Tables are filling up fast. If you would like to sell something you must reserve a table. You can check out the website for information on how to do this at Grand Valley Aquarium There will be lots of plants and great driftwood pieces available as well as fish of all kinds. If your looking for an extra aquarium, this will be the place for you.

We will be having our regular fish club meeting that evening as well, so this would be a great opportunity to check the club out. Internationally known speaker, Mike Schadle will be presenting a program on Central American Cichlids.

tritan Thanks for the tip on this. I have a few items I would like to get rid of. Had alot of fun at the auction so looking forward to the swap.

Otis At a swap meet, hobbiest/vendors can rent a sales table for $25 and sell fish,plants, equipment, etc. for whatever price they want and keep all of the money. The public is charged $3 to get in with discounts for families. This tends to bring out more high end goods that someone wouldn't want to risk selling at auction.

Hours will be from 11-3 so if you are buying, you can spend as little or as much time at the meet as you like and still have a chance to buy everything you want.

I know there will be lots of plants at this meet. It will also be open to freshwater and saltwater sellers.
