Going to my first swap meet.

The Milwaukee aquarium society is having a swap meet this Sunday. There will be vendors and private sellers. This is the first time that I'm going so I'm pretty excited. Just figured I'd share so if anyone else here is from the south east Wisconsin area come on by.

I went to a local one here in Michigan this weekend. Picked up a massive piece of driftwood and some plants.

What did you end up buying?

2 spare 6500k t5 bulbs an apple snail and a bag of repashy superfood. They had a ton of driftwood there(some of them were huge) along with a ton of plants but I was there looking for red plants, unfortunately nobody had any. The snail seems happy so far, he's been cruising around the tank and climbing the glass since the second I put him in.

I hear ya on the driftwood. The piece I picked up goes all the way to the top of my tank, touches the back glass (2" shy of the front), and has a branch that extends out the side 2 1/2 feet! I couldn't resist...

Sounds like an awesome piece. Got any pics?
