There usually is 1 or 2 tables selling plants but nothing special. Crypts, swords, and a few stems. I've never seen much in the way of forground plants or anything out of the ordinary. Not a place I usually go for plants. Shrimp on the other hand is another story. Shrimp usa is usually there and that's my main reason for going.

Cool maybe ill give it a go then. I have the regulars like crypts, swords, and anubias, but i should also have some foreground stuff like gloss, dwarf sagitteria, microsword, and dwarf baby tears as well.

I will definitely be checking out shrimpUSA especially since im in the process of setting up some shrimp breeding tanks as well.

Does anybody know what kind of live food is usually available at the swap? I'm looking to pick up some grindal worms and moina if possible.

In the past, I saw: grindal, vinegar eels, banana worms, microworms (I am trying to remember), blackworms, daphnia. However the last meet I really didn't see anything - not sure why. The small worms are usually at the Killifish Society desk, the daphnia was sold by one guy in the smaller room, and the blackworms come from that one guy who sells pounds of Organic worms (he usually runs out about 30 min after the swap meet opens unless you place a preorder).
