Sept Swapmeet planning done|Shrimp groupbuy done

Hi all,

The swapmeet is set for Sept 9th. Please refer here: https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...60#post1962160 kindly check in on the poll so we can get an approximate headcount.

Update on shrimp group buy -

All arrived, wined, dined, repacked and picked up or delivered.

Warm thanks to Bob Bauer for his shrimps and painstaking efforts individually packing each order. Large insulated boxes, kordon bags and the works were used for safe summer shipping.

Thanks for participating and enjoy!

I want to join but I don't have a car, so can it be around somewhere easy to take transit? LOL

Thanks!

yeah, we should pick a place that is train accessible. Carpooling also is another possibility. Does anyone have any suggestions?

our last meeting, we traded plant trimmings, shrimp food, shrimp supplements. im sure we could do something similar as well.

I'm in if it's mass transit friendly, it's like pulling teeth trying to get someone to drive to the Bronx.

Also I'm not sure what to bring, I guess when we have a day picked I'll write a list of what I can spare.

Maybe you guys can meet in the flushing mall food court by college point accessible with 7 train, and those who drive can park in the sky mall free for 3 hrs provided that you don't get caught, . Always interested in group buy.

I'll definitely have yellow shrimps and kribensis. Mine are competing for the most prolific species award

I'm good for either Flushing or the LES. What day of the week would this be on?

This sounds like fun. I'll probably have some trimmings soon. I'm willing to trade.

Good to see lots of feedback.

For those interested in getting together, I recommend subscribing to this thread so we can pull some ideas and setup a time that fits for most of us. I have met so many of you already. Trust me when i say we have some serious hobbyists in the area with lots to share / trade / and even sell

1. Day of the week... Was thinking a weekend unless someone suggests a weekday after work. This may prove challenging for those with kids, school or other obligations but make a suggestion.

2. Location... Queens has the flushing mall and other open areas for us to meet freely, find cheap food but it may not be convenient for those coming from the bronx, brooklyn or outer areas. Maybe somewhere in Manhattan near LES where we can find a cafe to crash, chat and trade stock. That might serve a majority of us being more centrally located. Who doesn't know where WIN is

3. Items for sale/trade
I know many of us has plant trimmings or livestock so getting these details out closer to the day would be good. We can post what's available here like a WTB/FS or is there something easier for our local group?

4. Group buys... Been thinking of this and wanted to open up my thoughts on the matter.

Livestock:
I am planning an order for dwarf shrimp (mainly Snow white crystals and Painted fire reds). If anyone has interest in adding to the order, lmk. In the past, i've gathered folks who only wanted 3 - 5 shrimp (cost depending on the shrimp) plus shipping (usually $1-4 depending on quantity). If you need a list of what's available for a sale and cost, pm me. also bear in mind, GTU has CRS, orange, rilis and OEBT for sale locally

Food-
I have been considering an order for fishfood from yourfishstuff.com. If there is interest in putting an order together, drop me a line and we can work something out. Currently considering: earthworm flakes and golden pearl fry and coral reef food, and HBH super soft Krill. Since even a small portion might last a year, we can also split an order on foods to offer our pets a variety. again, just tossing another idea out there.

If anyone wants to pull something together for other livestock or plants, feel free to mention it as well.

In our last meet, may of us brought samples of food and shrimp supplements and portions of mosses and plants to share. If you are a shy person, bring samples and people will come say hello to you... i promise
