(Salt Water) Frag Farmer's Market
I cross posted this in the MA forum, so to those that browse both sections, I apologize.
Not sure how many dabble in the salt side as well as fresh, so I thought I would post this here.
Every March (for the past 9 years) the Frag Farmer's Market (FFM) is held in Storrs, CT. IThe guy that runs it is a high school science teacher that has set up a huge system to help educate the children and to allow some to run what is quite literally graduate level research (I was fourtunate to see some presentations at a club meeting a couple of years ago). He is pretty hands of and just provides guidance and accountability where it is needed.
The FFM started off as a way to help raise funds and bring awareness to the work students were doing, but has grown into an amazing show. Tons of local hobbiests and a lot of commercial coral and hardware vendors. Some even make the trip from the West Coast. Tons of big names right along side hobbiests. Really great prices. Even if you are not into reef tanks, it is worth the trip.
I forget if I can link to other forums, but if you search ' FFM coral 2017 ', you will come up with some results. I'd post the flier, but that doesn't seem to be a possibility from iOS.
I usually feel kind of guilty using the quick reply... my replies are rarely quick.
