What do you mean? I think Hara does something out of her house as a fieldtrip for schoolchildren.

Do you mean like someone opening their house up like an open house but instead being to show off your tank?

I know there is a commerical oriented one (actualy coming up soon) but it's not really a "trip to the aquarium" type of show. Mostly equipment manufacturers and wholesalers etc.

Interesting concept. Probably something that would only happen in FL and CA.

An aquarium show would be cool, but it's probably too impractical to move cycled tanks and fish around.
On the other hand, I would imagine that there must be equipment shows somewhere for the reef people.

One thing you could check into is a local aquarium society if there is one near you. They often have monthly fish auctions and annual shows. Here is a link listing some US aquarium society website - maybe one is near where you live.
