THE Greater Cincinnati Aquarium Society Swap Meet has been a once per year event since 2006. October is one of the months in which we usually hold one of our two annual auctions. Since Covid-19 is “still a thing”, we’ve decided to host a second swap meet instead of an auction. Swap meets are shorter in duration, take fewer people to operate, and result in fewer “person-to-person interactions” …all while STILL having some GREAT Fish Fun with your fellow “fish-nerds”! If YOU want an October Swap Meet 2021 Table – ACT NOW!

NOTES REGARDING COVID-19:
THE UNIVERSITY AND GCAS WILL BE CONDUCTING THIS EVENT WITH COVID-19 SAFETY PRECAUTIONS IN MIND, INCLUDING: THE POSSIBILITIY OF FACE MASKS BEING REQUIRED, AND NO FOOD OR BEVERAGE SERVICE AVAILIBILITY.
IF FACE MASKS ARE REQUIRED, THEY MUST COVER THE MOUTH AND THE NOSE AT ALL TIMES.

Sorry to use the forum for this, but apparently I don't have enough posts to reply to a pm... RVS, I'm not sure on pricing yet, will depend on the size/quantity I bag them up, as I have them at different levels of maturity. I'm in Richmond IN and will not be in the Cincy area until the swap meet.

Hey Eric, how do I get a swap meet table? Can I trade you some water lettuce for my vendor table? What time does it start? Can I get a table in the northwest corner no further than 3 feet equidistant from an outlet and a fire exit?

Sorry…little inside swap meet chair joke.

On a serious note, I’ll be there as a shopper to restock the brand new fishroom! Can’t wait to browse!!!

African Cichlids
• Labidochromis caeruleus – Electric Yellow, “Marigold” (Juveniles)
Same strain but those I call “Marigold” have a distinctive orange hue instead of the usual bright yellow. It appears to be a recessive trait as it only appeared in a small number of fry per spawn but seems to breed true in the next generation.
