Is anybody going this year? and if anybody has been to one before can you give me a couple details?

Ive never even knew this existed I just found out about and its going to be in NJ this October, I'm in NYC so I'm definitely want to go.

Are you able to buy fish there? or is it just to look at the exhibits?

I am Interested in going as well. Let me know if you figure out if I can buy fish too, because I wasn't sure either.

I just visited the event site and I will probably do the Saturday show. From what I'm reading it looks more like a trade convention; vendors showcasing their aquarium products.

I will only be going saturday as well, if you guys want we can get a group and meet there and go together.

I believe you are able to buy fish, I'm doing some research now. but they have a list of local fish stores that would be at the event too so I'm assuming you can buy.

here is the list

Yes, you can buy fish, plants, hardscape equipment etc. There will likely be raffles and they have speakers. I’m going!

What time are you guys showing up? Sat hours are 10a to 6p.

I've only met Lchi87 and KingD. I met Dave125g too but don't know if he's coming down (do it!).

I'm guessing cash only if I want to buy stuff?

I actually think they might take credit cards. At this point, getting the square card reader us so easy that anyone can get it. It is such a big convention I would assume they would take credit cards. But don't quote me on that. I plan to be there first thing when they open, at ten, and stay until I guess I am done. Does anyone know if a segrest farms will actually be selling fish there, because I think that would be cool. I don't know about you guys, but I'm most excited to see Keng Lee's guppies, I've always wanted some of them.
