East Coast Monster Fish Convention


Admittedly not really planted tank focused, but a great list of speakers nevertheless. Anyone else planning on going?

There are some speakers on there that have not been in the country for a few years, all new talks. Not all "monster" fish, but world class line up!

The "Monster" is in the size of the "Konvention".

Here's some more good stuff...

As we have been telling everyone, after each talk during the konvention, eight talks in all, we will be giving away winners choice of an Aqueon 33g, 40g breeder, or 75g aquarium.
Well guess what...we were wrong!
After each talk we will be giving away the choice of each aquarium, with Aqueon versa tops, Aqueon LED's, an Aqueon Power Filter, an Aqueon heater and CaribSea Substrate. If you pick the 75g you will be walking away with over $350 in retail.
We will be giving away $5000 in merchandise during the weekend.


Have you ever been to a Konvention that has given away a 120g setup?
A 120g and a 90g setup?
A 120g, a 90g and a 72g bowfront setup?
Now add in eight 75g's. Eight 33g's. Four 40g breeders. A Coralife 29g Biocube. Also add in a 55g, a 29g, a 20g and OVER 20 LED Light Fixtures!
Have you ever been to a Konvention in a Kastle?
Free Yuengling? Two HUGE Auctions! A Drygood Vendors Room and Livestock Vendors Rooms too! Speakers from Europe and North America! Free Saturday Morning Breakfast!
Here is your chance...
http://eastcoastmonsterfish.com/


There will be L-046's at The Konvention...make sure you get there on Saturday Night AND Sunday for BOTH of our auctions, and Sunday for our HUGE Synodontis/Pleco/Catfish Choice Raffle! The list of Plecos and Catfish will be spectacular! There will be fish donated from retailers from all over the US. For those on the East Coast who have been to a HUGE ECC Auction you know that we draw about 250-300 each auction, but add in an ALL-DONATION Saturday Night Auction with the HUGE ECC/MFK Sunday Auction and that number might skyrocket.


The amount of available rooms has dwindled down to just a few. As a matter of fact I had the hotel add a few extra rooms to our block just this week. Cutoff for the discounted hotel rate is September 3rd. Why not come in a day early or stay a day late as we are just 35 minutes outside of NYC!!!

Oh no, now more people know. That means i have to buy more pleco raffle tickets . I am just kidding of course ( on the part of more people knowing, because i plan on winning a few plecos ) . An incredible line up of speakers covering all types of topics, all types of giveaways, 2 huge auctions that will have everything you can think of, and the pleco catfish raffle will make for an amazing weekend. Bill's auctions also always have a great assortment of plants . Don't let the monster name scare you away, there will be a little of everything for everyone. I'll be there and hopefully will come home with some new plecos and a tank or 2 to put them in .

The convention was all it was made out to be and a whole lot more. The speakers were amazing. Even though I was there mainly for Ingos talk, I sat in all the talks except for one and they were all entertaining and very interesting. You guys would have loved Rachels talk on inverts and nano fish. The auctions were unbelievable and the diversity of fish found there was just out of this world. There were all types of equipment and dry goods donated that were auctioned and raffled off. Even I got lucky and won an Aqueon Evolve 8 nano tank setup in one of the raffles. I came home with some new plecos, a bunch of pleco caves from SCC, a bunch of food samples from Aqueon, Hikari and Zoo Med, and met up with some old friends and made a lot of new friends. They are already planning next years Konvention, and if its half of what this one was, it is not to be missed.
