GCCA Swap

Any members here attending the Greater Chicago Cichlid swap on Sunday? If so what are you looking for/picking up? I know I am getting a female panduro for my male since my last when spawned and jumped.

While they are fun with the exception that no one seems to wear deodorant any longer. I just don't find anything that interest me any anymore, except for Jeff's cichlids and driftwood. Otherwise it's table after table of frickin' africans. But with that said I usually make nearly everyone, I just go later to avoid the rush and the smells!

We should all meet for breakfast one day before the swap.

I agree, they need to rent out a larger space. Way to many people and yes it does have a bo smell lol. The Scott smith all animal expo is at the dupage county fairgrounds. It's barely farther west and is a lot bigger with multiple indoor buildings.

Right the fairgrounds I would think would be cheaper. I know to have a table at the swap there it's only $20 and $5 entrance fee. Also the main building is a indoor rubber tennis court that won't hurt if some water gets on it.

I've been wanting to get to one since I'm so close, but haven't yet. Maybe I'll pass and not worry about it if they aren't that great anyway. Is anyone going here: Aquatic Experience
