The swap was awesome! My tank is bursting at the seams now, wont be long now before I need to upgrade to something with a little more elbow room than a 14g.

I had a great time. I was one of the lucky ones....I actually won 3 of the raffle prizes...2 were gift certificates and I got a grab bag on the way in :) I got mostly all Acans..1 dendro, 1 rasta, and a flame angel (watching him close to see if he nips any of my corals). I am new to Acans so we will see how well they do. I also got 1 sps. no clue what it is....my Boyfriend is a "stick lover" so that one was for him lol.

Huge thanks to everyone who helped put this together. I can't wait for the next swap in March. I may be eating Ramen noodles and mac and cheese till then, but it was soooo worth it.

I'll frag mine if you'll frag yours :)...All of the best gardens are underwater.

I want to thank Scott and Cliff as well as all the others who put this together. It went very smoothly and I can say that everyone I talked with had a great time! Lots of hard work ... but it certainly was appreciated by all.

I agree it was a great show, well organized and a busy one which is good. Not only did I get some great corals but I won the Dosing kit. No more manual dosing and I can get my numbers up! Installing today. Thanks to everyone involved.

Yes it turned out very well, it was a great success! Thanks for all who attended and helped out at the swap. A BIG thank to all the the local fish stores, the manufacturers and vendors that contributed to the MARS swap!! They were extremely generous this year and I can't thank you enough for all your support. We were able to fill just over one and half barrels of food and raise a good some of cash for the Salvation Army. I Hope everyone had a good time and came home with some nice corals, fish or what have you. See you all next year!!
KEEP ON REEFIN ON!!

BIG BIG thank you to everyone from the community, our local fish stores Best Fish/ Living Art/ Animart/ Big Kahuna/Alpha Aquaculture and all the vendors that sponsored the event. This was a huge success in many ways, from keeping the MARS spirit alive to helping feed and shelter the less fortunate. Everyone give yourself a pat on the back for simply showing up and giving support to a community as a whole. We hope to keep this spirit going for years to come so please keep active on the forums and promote MARS as hobbyist come aboard. Helping each other out is what it's all about. Cheers! =D>
