This is NOT a swap. It is a SALE. Do not bring a trunk of stuff to SWAP at this swap meet. Asked where to drop my stuff at the front door it was politely explained to me it was NOT a swap. Only the people behind tables, who paid for the rent, could swap or sell. [U]The only swap was cash for products. That is ok but "who knew?" I guess the pros knew but.....in the future Manhattan Reefers let use newbes know this is a sale, not a swap. Thanks
I understand the confusion. My first time was the last swap but if they don't charge for the tables how would they pay for the space? It's pretty much expected. You swap with fellow members by prearranging it.

My first swap. Had a blast. More crowded than I expected, but came away with several nice new additions for my tank. Only wish they had a better variety of fish on hand.

overall good swap a little dissapointed that i didnt win anything again lol but everyone was freindly some of the vendors even went beyond and were very helpful and even wound up scoring a few frags from one of the vendors for helping them carry 70 boxes of unsold salt lol, always glad to help but if someone hooks you up even better

Hey, I won an LED pendant, so I am happy. Although, it is not big enough for my 40 Gallon breeder, but all that this means is that I get to set up a new tank!

Awsome awsome awsome swap!!! Left my wallet empty....darn!!!

Big thanks for all the volunteers and helpers!

It's a great swap, maybe we should a section for suggestions and comments, what people like don't like. It's great but there's always room for improvement.
