GCCA Swap Meet Saturday October 15th

GCCA's Swap Meet is a great place to buy fish, plants, food, equipment and more!

Buy directly from the breeder and make your best deal!
Four times a year these fish swaps have the largest selection of fish available in the Midwest
Find fish that you can't find at any local fish store.
This is one of the biggest
Most vendors sell fish that they raise themselves.
Take a look at GCCA classifieds to see a preview into what the vendors are bringing
Arrive early for the best selection!

Saturday from 10AM to 2PM

Best Western Plus
4400 Frontage Rd
Hillside, IL. 60162


Admission
$5.00 for everyone
Kids under 15 free with an Adult admission

If you missed buying something at the last swap here's your chance again.

If "Shrimp USA" shows up they'll have all the shrimp you need.
I plan on picking up some myself.

The Chicago Aquatic Plant Society will be there again selling... plants! And of course manzanita wood!

We have gotten a great response to our plant sales in the past so get there early. All our plants are grown by our members in their own tanks and almost all are grown submersed (not emersed).

So stop by, say hello, and take a look at our high quality plants many of which you won't ever find in a local fish store. All at a reasonable price!

Will other fish besides Cichlids be sold at this event? I'm interested in Cory cats, Cardinal Tetra's, Rummy Nose Tetra's.

trapperwolves -

Don't know if we're in the big room or small room. We have not been assigned a table yet (actually we'll have two tables this time). Either way stop by again and say hello to the group!

See ya there. Looking to buy a lot of plants.

msujohn: typically you will find a large selection of cories there being sold by multiple vendors. I purchased quite a few there myself.
I don't recall ever seeing tetras there but I could be mistaken.

Trapperwolves - looking forward to seeing you too! We will have almost 200 bags of plants for sale - more than we ever had before!

I am not afraid of work. I can lay down right next to it and go to sleep.

Note that the GCCA really got their act together this year and posted the remaining swap for the year (Dec 4th) and also 5 more swaps in 2017! All the dates are posted on their website Home.
