I first got the itch to seriously join a club and make some fish friends right before covid hit. So im looking forward to anything. coralbandit if I ever run into you at one of northeast events, I'd say I owe you a beer!

I've never been to that convention. What can one expect at it?

They will hopefully list info and confirm it soon ?
They used to have competitions and speakers from Friday right till Sunday when the auction takes place .
I have just gone for the Sunday auctions but always enjoyed and usually brought home a cool fish or two ..
With lockdowns and people working from home [not me ] I would think there may a great many more fish then before from hobby breeders .
Once I see it confirmed I will probably decide to go .
I missed doing fishy things last year ..All work and no play make Jack a dull boy ..
Here is a link to the 2019 convention with the type of info I hope to see;

I hope that’s not true, it did have a location on their website so I’m not sure if they’re offering both

Hopefully that will be after the March 19-21 convention instead of being a replacement ?

Aww I got excited there when I saw the post about the North East! Then I realised that it probably meant North East US - not North East UK where I live...

Have you ever heard of creatures plus in north smithfield RI? There’s also a place called OSA in Seekonk, MA! The store in seekonk is only for freshwater fish but they have a very impressive store in Coventry RI.

I've heard of OSA but never been. I'll have to check them out. Have you ever been to uncle ned's?

I have heard for years about Uncle Neds ..Never made the trip .
I very rarely buy fish . Besides the Hans discus at my LFS and fish from DiscusMadness in NJ it has been years .
I seem to find something of interest at auctions though .. I hope they make it happen but they seem slow with real info ?
I am from NY [middle/upstate] and have no clue what the covid 'rules' are in CT.

I've really stopped paying attention for my own mental health lol but I assume its very similar to NY. I'm in the market for a multitude of things so this would be VERY opportune for me...

Hey anyone heard anything new? I’ve been watching the page for new information and I’ve yet to see anything
